Sea Veggie Month!, Everyday Plant-Based Cooking Class & Dinner
April is Sea Vegetable Month at Healthy Living, Inc.! If you have been wondering about the different varieties, health benefits and how to cook these treasures from the sea, you have come to the right place. Each menu will feature a different sea vegetable, in this class Juliette will be working with wakame and sea palm.
"Sea palm is a rare vegetable, unique to the West Coast of North America. This miniature marine palm tree withstands the pounding surf, growing in dense “forests” on the outer shoreline." It's very versatile and can be used in many forms of cooking, from soups, to salads and sautés. (http://oceanharvestseavegetables.foodoro.com/products/sea-palm)
