Want to learn a tasty, healthy, versatile dish that can be made in about five minutes?
Cheelas are savory crepes that are known as vegan omelettes in India. They are usually made with a pulses flour, like yellow split-peas or mung bean, and can include all types of ingredients like tomatoes, onion, ginger, cilantro, sprouts, kale, carrot, and more.

Then, we will demonstrate how to make tasty breakfast foods like tomato cheelas, green cheelas, and sprouted mung bean cheelas with a variety of toppings and spices. Along the way we will also demonstrate how to make cilantro chutney and mung bean sprouts. From 7:45 to 8:10, you and a partner will make and enjoy your own cheelas in a mindful cooking and eating space.
All the foods in this class follow a whole foods plant-based dietary (WFPB) lifestyle. Nutritional science has proven that a WFPB dietary lifestyle can prevent, and reverse, many chronic diseases.
