If my yummy vegan cooking has the powers of vegan conversion - so be it! I made this the other night and it was by far the best thing I've ever made in my life. My non-vegan husband loved it and can't wait until I make it again.
Of course I didn't follow this Vegan Richa recipe exactly. I don't think I have ever done that in my life, but my version turned out lovely.
I will definitely be making this for dinner guests in the future!

I'm really trying hard not to bore people with talk of becoming a vegan but believe me when I say people have a lot of questions for me. And what's important to know is that I don't judge people for what they eat and I hope they don't judge me either. Food is complicated and loaded with issues.
And I try to get that point across right away when I start being bombarded with questions. The other night I was at a dinner party and my sweet hosts went above and beyond and made me a vegan pizza. They even shopped for ingredients at the famous Herbivorous Butcher .
One of the dinner quests asks me why I decided to become vegan. I can still see her sweet, questioning face, earnestly wanting to know why someone would do such a thing.
I told her there were a lot of reasons but going vegan was mostly prompted by the election of Trump. I was devastated (and still am) and thought this is an opportunity to do more good, to make the world a better place because with Trump as president, it will only get worse.
So with each bite I take or rather don't take, I am helping animals and the environment.
I pretty much silenced the room.
