HomeBiogas Vegan Cooking Class
We have decided to seize the opportunity of 2016 ending by inviting those families who are dear to us to a very special event: On Friday 16th December we held a vegan cooking class, led by Chef Noa Fruman.
Noa taught us how to make six delicious vegan dishes for family dinners as well as entertaining guests. She also gave us some valuable advice about healthy cooking – Did you know that cooking vegetables at low temperatures better preserves their nutrients?
Here we share a couple of Noa’s recipes, and hope to see more of you join the HomeBiogas family of fans in 2017.

Let’s Make A Cookbook Together!
We use this opportunity for inviting you to participate in the HomeBiogas cookbook project:
In the next few months we are going to collect recipes of healthy dishes created by our customers (homemade on the biogas stove of course).
The first 10 customers to send us their recipe will receive the hardback book delivered free to their home as a gift in December 2017.
Want to be in the book? Send us your recipe, a picture of the dish and tell us a bit about yourself (if you’d like). Fill out the form below or email: [email protected]
