Something not many people know about me is that I was vegetarian for many years.  I have never personally been a huge fan of meat.  I have added chicken/turkey and some fish back in in the past few years.  But today we focus on me previous lifestyle!  I still enjoy cooking vegetarian, and here is a recipe that I have been really enjoying this summer!
