Recipe by Pret-ty pret-ty good
This is a delicious, cheap, and fast recipe that is perfect for my allergy riddled family. I love the rich flavors and the adaptability that makes this dish fresh and something that everyone can enjoy. I usually make this with whatever leftover meat and/or veggies we have in the fridge, or if I am in a pinch I just add extra veggies (more carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, whatever you have). Looking for a use for all of those broccoli stalks? Dice em up and saute them with the onions! They add a great flavor and crunch. I did not make this spicy because of the little one, feel free to add some peppers after you saute the onions. This is adapted from The Gluten Free Vegan by Susan O'Brien.
