Hello & Happy Friday!!






All I can say is, life get’s busy and sometimes you just want to reach for the quickest eats. That being said, I’m not talking about fast food, or microwavable meals.. 



I’m talking about real food made in minutes that’s packed to the max with nutrients and flavor!



While many of my recipes can be intricate and include a variety of ingredients, this is one of those no brainer concepts that involves a handful of staples you should always have in your kitchen.



Truth, sometimes, no brainer concepts are the best concepts!








What I love about this recipe is that you can use a variety of vegetables to create the same concept. From yellow squash to mushrooms, whatever you can throw on a griddle for a few minutes is a perfect match for this combo!




If you’re just getting your feet wet with vegan eats or simply need to gravitate away from packaged faux meat products.. this recipe for vegan Pesto Veggie Sammies will be your savior.. 












Why this recipe rocks: 




Packed to the max with vegies


Great for any season!

Great for entertaining!

The quickest fabbest eats you can make in minutes!

Non vegan approved!
