The hardest part of eating vegetarian is explaining to the family that the flamingo tongues at the Saturnalia banquet still count as meat. Today’s Groupon teaches the making of healthy vegan and vegetarian fare to eaters of all persuasions: for $55, you get a three-hour introductory Ayurveda cooking class at Route to India (a $110 value) in the South Financial District.

Ayurveda, the Indian art of cooking, celebrates the joy of food and fosters a reverence for nutritious vegetarian cuisine. Route to India's Nalini Mehta has worked as a culinary instructor at the Natural Gourmet School and Whole Foods Culinary Center. During 90 minutes of instruction and 90 more minutes of cooking, students will master the art of making ghee (clarified butter), noodles in tahini sauce, coconut date ladoo, and a sari-swirl of equally delicate delicacies. By the time you savor the fruits of your labors during a light dinner, you'll have developed a love of food that can't be expressed in Petrarchan sonnets about Twinkies. Classes are held every Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. and are subject to availability.

Route to India

Nalini Mehta helms Route to India, where the world traveler and culinary expert taps into her cultural heritage and cooking experience to teach burgeoning chefs how to create their own Indian dishes. Mehta specializes in Ayurvedic cooking, an approach that focuses on the physical and spiritual benefits. In addition to teaching classes, Mehta leads parties on culinary journeys to India, where they’ll discover a bevy of spices and fortifying dishes alongside meditation and yoga sessions.
