June Cooking Class: Simple Vegan Mexican Food

Tempeh Asada Taco

Join us as we learn to transform plant-based pantry staples like tofu, lentils, and tempeh into tasty taco fillings. This cooking class taught by Jeff Johnson will be held at Van Cleve Community Center on Thursday, June 19th, 7:00 – 8:30 p.m. This event is FREE and open to the public.

To make Tofu Rancheros, we’ll combine peppers and onions to make an easy tofu scramble that we’ll top with a tasty tomato and chili sauce. To make Ancho Lentil Taco Filling, we’ll season lentils with smoked chili peppers and spices. And to make Tempeh Asada, we’ll marinate tempeh pieces in lime juice, cumin, and other spices and then sear them in a cast iron pan.

You won’t want to miss this opportunity to learn how to make easy, delicious, and vegan Mexican food. Please note that any of these dishes would be the perfect thing to bring to our June Potluck and Bonfire, which has a Latin American food theme. How convenient!

Class instructor Jeff Johnson is an assistant professor of philosophy at St. Catherine University in Saint Paul, where he regularly teaches courses on animal ethics and on the ethics of eating animals in particular. In his spare time, Jeff volunteers for Compassionate Action for Animals and serves on the board of directors. He loves cooking and eating all kinds of delicious plant-based foods.
