I know the name is an oxymoron, but this is quick to prepare, even if it takes a while cooking! Usually I spend a lot of time making my meals from scratch, but sometimes I'm in a rush and throw something together that ends up pretty delicious! It's vegan, gluten-free, healthy, and smells great as you walk in the door. —Jenb42
