Cooking 102: More Legumes
Above: Promotional graphic for Alchemy of the Hearth: "Explore the magic of cooking - hands on classes for adults, teens and children" 760-233-2433.
Beans and other legumes contribute to good nutrition and are a good source of fiber, resistant starch, and other nutrients. Other than non-starchy vegetables, they are one of the least glycemic sources of carbohydrates.
We should be eating between 1/3-1/2 cup servings per day. And, did you know that canned beans tend to raise blood sugar more than beans which you soak and cook yourself?
In this class you will learn all about legumes such as split peas, black eye peas, lentils, fava beans and lima beans.
**Please bring an apron, closed toe shoes, chefs knife and containers to carry your creations home.
