This is one of the easiest dishes I make on a regular basis, but it is impressive enough to serve to guests. It’s so good that no one will guess it wasn’t made from scratch, or even that it is 100% vegan!

This is the greatest type of comfort food – warm, cheesy, and delicious, with just a little bit of spice. It also packs a hefty dose of protein, fiber, and iron, so you will actually feel good about eating it!
