This Vegan Side Dish recipe is great for any season. You can increase or decrease the amount of vegetables according to your taste, or add a new one which is fresh on the market.

Cover with foil and cook together. In my family Vegan Side Dish was such a success that I was asked to make it two times in a row. I hope you will like it, too!...more
