This easy vegan recipe is filed in my recipe box under Q for quick. I reserve these meals for those days I need a fast but favorite meal.
There are always a few times when the day is busy and I need a recipe we all like but is quick to prepare. My daughter is the original creator of this recipe but I have made it vegan by adding my own special touches.
