My girlfriend is Vegan one day a week and I know very little about vegan cuisine. I am always searching the web for ideas. I saw this dish a while back by Heidi Swanson, which was served on a bed of mung beans. It looked absolutely delish! I made this salad over a bed of brown rice, and it was extremely tasty!
