READY IN: 24hrs 20mins
Recipe by yummyeats

A great make ahead vegetable dish that you can bring to a family gathering or potluck. Only needs reheating to serve. This dish is vegetarian but can be made vegan by substituting good quality vegan margarine for the butter.

Easy and delicious! I added a sliced lemon to the boiling water and this added a bit more zing! Thanks for the recipe yummyeats!!
