Broccoli and Cashews over Millet

7 Mar

I am attempting to make one Vegan recipe each week. The toughest part of eating vegan for me is the fact that I am usually starving 20 minutes after I eat. The recipes that include some sort of grain seem to keep me fuller longer. So, here is one of those recipes for you.

I found it in a book I recently purchased
It is sort of a crash course for beginners on how to become a Vegan.
