That changed last week :)!!

Super Simple Suppers – Fried Rice

April 26, 2012 in Vegan Simple Eating Recipes by Lorilee Lippincott

Welcome to Super Simple Suppers.  Every Thursday I share a vegan recipe that can be made with a simple kitchen.  I do all my cooking in a tiny apartment kitchen with just a few cupboards and minimal counter space.  There are times I wish it was bigger, but I like how it keeps me cleaning as I go so I never end up with a huge kitchen mess at the end of the day.

Today we are doing a vegan fried rice.   Read the rest of this entry →
