I’ve been a long time fan of the blog Oh She Glows – Angela is a pioneer in the world of vegan blogging. She has been very open about her food struggles and successes and her first cookbook is wildly successful and fabulous. My husband bought this for me and I’m determined to work my way through many of the recipes and share them with you. I think so many people fear the word vegan thinking that food is crazy, bland, boring, cardboard-like, tofu or something disgusting and that couldn’t be farther from the truth. Plus each recipe can be customized to you and your family’s preference.
I made this recipe yesterday and it came together quite fast. My oldest is going through lifeguard training and she tries to eat earlier because she hates to have a full stomach while swimming (which I can understand). I had this in the oven and it only took about 15 minutes to finish up. From there I set my oven to the warm setting and served it as my family arrived home for dinner. For my youngest, who isn’t a fan of cheese, I left it vegan – for my father and husband I added shredded Cabot hot jalapeño cheddar and some diced avocado. Totally customizable!
This recipe is based on Oh She Glow’s Tex Mex Casserole but with my interpretation.
