    • Hope you will enjoy it, Jen. We are not vegan, but I do make vegan often as our Son and DIL and kiddos are vegan, so we love to experiment as we only serve vegan when they visit. Enjoy it.

  1. Esme, I have to be honest here. First I am a meat lover. Not sure that I would make this recipe for myself, however- if you were to invite me to dinner one and you made this, I would try it! Thank you for sharing.
    Take care and best wishes.

    • Dear Debra, I totally understand and as a meat lover myself, at first I had a very hard time with enjoying vegan or vegetarian foods. Our Son and DIL and family has gone vegan (more than 12 years) and I have come to like the food they enjoy and whenever they visit we only have vegan food (no other regular food with be on the table) as we respect their choice.
