Posted in response to a request. This is a recipe from my dad's vegan cookbook. My sister used to be vegan, so he made it up for her and the rest of us, if we wanted to try the recipes.

This was good for DD1 (5 years old) and I since it was so simple. I used organic ingredients except for the spices.
