This is a great recipe. I love vegan recipes that don't have weird ingredients. That is one adorable baby!

This is so, so good. I add one chicken stock cube and peas!

These are so good. I love all bean recipes and was excited to try this one. Simple to make and so satisfying. I served them with rice, fried plantains and stewed green beans. I will be making these again!
