Vegan Curry Shepherd’s Pie
Recipes
I love Indian cuisine!  It’s like a party in my mouth from the spices… and I just love those flavors. While not a traditional shepherd’s pie, I think that my Vegan Curry Shepherd’s Pie will become a favorite. The inspiration from this dish came from my sister.  Her curried shepherd’s pie is a hit for her family. I was curious how I could …

Vegan Greek Pasta
Recipes
I think most of us have that friend that posts recipes on Facebook that look really good and make you hungry just by looking at them.  Recently that happened to me… a friend posted a recipe for Greek Pasta.  It looked so good, that I knew I had to veganize it!
