A Lovely Green Dinner Party Menu

Collard Greens cut in Angel hair stripes
Last night I attended another fantastic cooking class with Marni Wasserman and lovely group of inspiring home chefs. The theme: Dinner Party, which of course included many lovely green vegetables and recipes.

Marni discussing tempeh to the class
On the menu for this dinner party:
  • Velvety Black Bean Dip
  • Wild Rice and Yam Pilaf
  • Sweet and Sour Tempeh Skewers
  • Angel Hair Collards
  •  Mango Rice Paper Rolls
  • Green Beans Almondine
  • Chocolate Avocado Pudding

Prepping the Tempeh
Mango Rice Paper Rolls
I worked on this dish with fellow gym-mate, Yvonne, but everyone in the group had a chance to work with the rice paper and make their own rolls.

My dinner plate
On the far right are the tempeh skewers, in the forefront the wild rice and yam pilaf and in the far back the green beans and collards - so colourful, so healthy and so very delicious!

Bon App├ętit, indeed!
