It’s a New Year and January is the start of the new Creative Cooking Group. Laz of Lazaro Cooks & Joan of Foodalogue will be hosting a group of talented food bloggers. Rather than doing makeovers, our mission each month is to create original dishes inspired by a theme. This month, the theme is vegan.
Our challenge: “Choose one of your favorite rich, heavy, fatty animal-protein-based meals and give it a healthy VEGAN spin.”
Even though this dish is not Cajun it is one of my favorite comfort foods…..who doesn’t love a plate or bowl of Spaghetti & Meatballs? This challenge was easy for me, my husband and I have been eating vegan for a while now. I have another blog, Best of the Veg full of vegan dishes inspired by my favorite everyday meat dishes.
