Do you know what’s my favorite part of the holiday (or ANY holiday, for that matter)? Well, it’s actually two things: food (of course) and spending time with family at the dinner table. This Easter, why not try a vegan dish instead of the traditional ham? Spending time with loved ones and sharing a cruelty-free and healthy meal sounds like a bonus to me! There are SO many options, including the recipe I’m posting. Yum!
Happy Easter (and for those who don’t celebrate, HAPPY SPRING (finally)!
