Looking for a grain free vegan dish that is delicious, easy to make and loaded with protein? Look no further! I took inspiration from Oh She Glows Every Day by Angela Liddon. She is such an inspiration, I absolutely love her recipes.

The only thing that takes time is baking potatoes. You can always do them the night before and then warm it for 20 minutes at dinner time. So without much further ado, let’s get this delicious meal started.
