I know this isn’t vegan, but I’ve decided to share it anyways because it has been on my list of recipes to share for a couple of months now. I’ve hesitated to show it because I figured it’s been done before, but it’s so damn good! I can’t not share it.

The other day my boyfriend asked me “do you miss eating meat?”. I said no. Then I thought about this recipe and changed my mind.The flavors are so simple, the dish is so easy, and it comes together so incredibly quick! I might even have to make this with tofu because I miss these textures and flavors so much!

I’ve definitely seen this dish on pinterest and the like before, but I wanted to make my own and ensure that I was able to control the ingredients and what went in it. Not to be biased, but I think mine is pretty damn good ;).
