Purees & Dips: Culinary Techniques to Boost Flavor and Increase Vegetable Consumption by Chef Wesley McWhorter, MS, RDN, LD, CSCS

Purées, dressings, dips, and salsas can transform a snack or meal adding tempting aromas and flavors. Chef Wesley will demonstrate multiple puréeing techniques to boost flavor while promoting plant-forward meals and increased vegetable, fruit, legume, and nut consumption. Participants will have the opportunity to try samples and practice the techniques in small groups with guided assistance. After the workshop, one attendee from each group will go home with the blender used during practice. Blenders provided by the culinary workshop partner, Blendtec. As a result of this workshop participants will be able to:
