  20 Meatless Monday with Robin Wiper
Robin’s favorite menu of easy, delicious and nutritious vegan superfood recipes—that can be adapted to accommodate the omnivore or gluten-free diner too. Great recipes for accommodating a crowd, or choose one or two recipes for a simple family meal. The menu includes: Five-Minute Roasted Butternut Squash Soup, an amazing, quick, flavor-infused soup with cashew cream. (You may want to take the class just to get this superb recipe, it’s truly delicious!) Superfood Salad with Ginger-Tahini Dressing, a fabulous, easy dressing that may become your go-to dressing! Accompany the salad with mouthwatering Smokey Tempeh Bacon, a homemade protein and fiber-packed alternative. Compliment the meal with Simple Whole Wheat Baguettes, a four ingredient bread recipe that tastes divine and takes just minutes to prepare. Serve the baguettes with Pub Cheese Spread a vegan cheese mix that deliciously outshines its artificial cheese imposter! The grand finale is a vegan Dark Chocolate Mousse with Coconut Cream. Robin’s entire family prefers this amazing vegan version of mousse over the traditional egg and cream variety—another recipe worth taking the whole class for!
