WFPB Portuguese Cooking Social

with Marcia Soares

Hosted by Rohini Bajekal, Nutritionist and Board Member of Plant-Based Health Professionals UK

Time for our first 2021 Members’ Cooking Social! We will be taught WFPB Portuguese dishes by Marcia Soares, PBHP Member and Founder of Plant-Based Portuguese.
SPACES ARE LIMITED AND ONLY FOR PBHP MEMBERS. Allocated on a first come, first served basis.

The dishes are whole foods plant-based (oil free and gluten free options).

We will be cooking along together but ingredients should ideally be prepped ahead of time.

Our meal will consist of the following dishes, which are plant-based versions of traditional Portuguese dishes by Marcia:

  • Black Bean Pudding Balls – plant-based “Morcela”
  • Jackfruit with soya cream – “Jacklhau and soytas”
  • Creamy Custard – “Leite creme”

The equipment and ingredients are very straightforward and easy to find in UK supermarkets.


This Cooking Social is free of charge but if you would like to donate please visit; donations for the class go directly to Marcia.

She lives in Leicester with her plant based husband and son Rafael, who was born in 2019, after a 100% vegan pregnancy.
