Vegan/Vegetarian Recipes…

Hello Friends,

Today I am begging a series of  various Vegan/vegetarian recipes. We eat vegan/vegetarian so there are many new recipes I will be sharing. I struggle with branching out so this is a great way for us to try new out of our box recipes. 🙂 There are some wonderful YouTube videos I absolutely rely on for great suggestions for our family’s meals!!

This recipe is so satisfying and so filling!! Also I cook in my I-Pot (Instant Pot) and I start with dry beans to save money. And instead of pine nuts I use pecans from our grove. Super yummy, super fast and super easy!! I hope you give this one a try.

So let the adventure begin….and enjoy!! 🙂 And please leave me feedback and leet me know how you like the recipe. Also, please share any helpful tips of any changes you make!! 🙂

Enjoy and have a wonderful week in the Lord,
