Vegan Basics for Non-Vegans




We don't need to go full vegan to get many of its health benefits, and we don't have to overhaul our entire fridge and pantry. Joy Manning and Marisa McClellan will conduct a class at 6 p.m., January 23, at the Culinary Literacy Center at Parkway Central Library, with some easy, make-ahead meat-free staples to prepare on Saturday or Sunday for plant-based meals whenever we want them during the week.

The class covers how to marinate and bake tofu (and what to do with it), how to roast any vegetable, quick sauces for whole grain pastas, plant-based tacos and quick meal ideas for canned beans. Manning and McClellan are food writers and co-hosts of the Local Mouthful podcast.

Admission is $15. Location: 1901 Vine St., Philadelphia. Preregistration is required via Eventbrite. For more information, call 215-686-5322 or visit FreeLibrary.org.
