Why I Love This Recipe
Straight from the Orthodontists mouth we have a vegan/vegetarian option that is packed with vitamins, minerals, and just enough sweet, spicy and crunchy to be incredibly satisfying. If you feel you are missing out on that crunch-factor with braces on, this is one of the tastiest ways to rectify that. This recipe was made with our vegetarian and vegan friends in mind, but if you are a carnivore, feel free to add some steak or chicken in with the mushrooms and onions when they are cooking.
