We loved learning about plant-based Indian cookery last week!

We LOVED learning about vegan Indian cooking with Emma of Yoga by 18 and we loved eating it even more!

Emma taught the class a range of cooking techniques substituting what ingredients we might usually use with vegan alternatives. The result was an Indian Thali, a feast of 7 different plant-based dishes which we all enjoyed together.

Emma is soon to send over her recipe cards so we will be sure to share them with you.

Thank you Emma for such a brilliant evening. More please!
