These are some of the recipes she uses on her transformation detox retreats in the Pentlands. She will show you step by step how to create these dishes that are always loved by friends and family even if they are not raw or even vegan. These dishes are so bursting with flavour and colour i would be hard not to want more!

SUNDAY

11.00 - 11.45 - Maggie Lister (Roving Chef from VfL) - Simply inspiring meals for one

VfL understands the difficulties in catering for just one vegetarian or vegan. Indeed, some of the most popular pages on our website are our Easy Recipes for One. So this demo focuses on senior vegetarians and vegans who cook for themselves.

The recipes in our Cooking for One guide are designed to make just one or two portions. VfL's roving chef demonstrates some dishes inspired by the guide, which is available free of charge.

12.00 - 12.45 - Lilian Nasuna Muirhead Delicious and nourishing vegan savoury

In this demo, I will be making fresh simple recipes that vegan families can try at home, while honouring the purity of the herbs, vegetables and spices that I will be using. I would like to demonstrate that food connects with every part of our lives and so we should be choosing fresh and healthy where possible, and its so easy to whip up these meals. For vegan savoury we will go for vegan Mexican tacos, and cold vegan lasagne, all made with loads of herbs like basil, mint etc.

3.00 - 3.45 - Lilian Nasuna Muirhead - Delicious and nourishing desserts.

In this dessert demo I will be using fruit, some edible flowers, some chocolate and spices and perhaps some herbs like mint and basil. This is to show that one can still enjoy a healthy vegan pudding with out compromising on the taste. It will be quick and easy to make but more importantly good for nourishing your body.
