The Depanneur, a funky corner-store-cum-foodie-haven on College Street in Toronto, bills itself as “a place where interesting food things happen.” Like the Gluten Free(dom) workshop we attended recently.
Dynamic duo raw vegan chef Mary Hubert and chef/culinary nutritionist Sara Kuntz kicked things off with this sweet and simple strawberry rhubarb chia pudding.
The star of this colourful cauliflower tabouleh was made in a food processor by pulsing florets of raw cauliflower into small pieces the size of rice grains.
Chef Mary demonstrates how to make zucchini pasta with her spiralizer.
Voila! A mess of zucchini curls.
We ramped up our veggie pasta with this gorgeously green ramp pesto.
Zucchini and soba noodle pasta with ramp pesto.
Pretty, crunchy wraps from Mother Nature come in all different shapes and sizes.
My latest obsession: avocado slices with hemp seeds, sea salt and olive oil. It’s the simple things.
I thoroughly enjoyed every single bite of gluten-free goodness created by our two talented chefs. (How cute are the little Brussels sprout wraps?!) Missing from this photo are chef Sara’s tasty tortilla chips: Food for Life rice tortillas brushed with olive oil and sprinkled with sea salt and any fresh herbs you have on hand. Bake at 350° for a few minutes. A new staple in our house!
After enjoying a super fresh, delicious, wholesome meal with some good company and our knowledgeable chefs came the happy ending: chocolate fudge brownie with chocolate drizzle made in donut-shaped molds.
