I hope all are well staying home and washing their hands frequently. I know what has the world come to when I have to greet this way. haha! well, lets hope and pray this phase of our lives will be behind us soon. Today I have another delicious vegetarian recipe. It might be vegan as well since I used no milk-based products, so yeah it is a VEGAN recipe. It is so worth eating your vegetables when they’re cooked with spices and seasoning.
