A while ago, I mentioned wanting to include more savory recipes here on the blog, so here we go! These may be few and far between, or they may be more of a weekly thing, we’ll see how it goes. For now, I wanted to fill a void that I found when I was searching around for a vegan minestrone soup recipe last week, especially one that didn’t have beans as the main ingredient. (more…)
