I know a lot of you who follow me are vegetarian/vegan, so I had to share this recipe with you because it’s too good not to! Even if you’re not a vegetarian this is a great dish, and easy to make. We had a potluck at work and this dish was a huge hit with everyone, so much so that we made my coworker, Lindsey, send around the recipe!

She has an amazing blog that I’m addicted to now, she’s an incredible writer, raw and honest! The best kind. You can check out her blog here.
