Recipe by Lindsey Lawrence
When you crave a rich, creamy meal, try this one. The soyballs take on a flavor of their own and really add to this dish. Use seminola noodles instead of the curly egg noodles you find in the store to keep it vegan. Double the recipe if you are cooking for more than three.
