    I love this piece! I was on a vegan diet over the summer, and even now I enjoy eating vegan food. So this is very helpful. Thank you.

      While I’m not Vegan, some of these sound like they could be really good! I might have to give these a try next time Thanksgiving rolls around.

        You would be surprised by the things that don’t “taste” vegan. 😀

    Yes please! I love these types of dishes during fall and winter. I’m really a fan of the gardein roast and field roast too. Lentil loaf in muffin tins instead of one big loaf also make a great meal that is portable and portioned out…an extra benefit for college students! 😀
