Simple dinner to make that is quick + easy! Vegan friendly, just omit the fish!

This recipe can be made in #30minutes! It is a hearty, warming dish that is amazing anytime of the year. It will leave your mouth impressed + wanting to show it off to your loved ones!

Don't be scared off from the ingredient, nutritional yeast or nooch. Nutritional yeast is a #vegan product that is made from deactivated fungus. The yeast itself is made from cane + beet molasses.

Nutritional yeast is a powerhouse of nutrients! It has protein, B vitamins, zinc, + selenium. Vegans love nutritional yeast because it contains B12. This is an essential nutrient your body needs + is most readily found in non-vegan foods so most vegans have to supplement with it.

You can find nutritional yeast in most grocery stores (bulk food or health food areas) or just buy it online!

So you don't have some of the ingredients but you REALLY want to make it?
