Vegan Fesanjoon

Jill Dalton
This amazingly delicious Plant Based Fesenj?n, pronounced Fesanjoon, is a dish that I have been making for my family for many years now. Fesenj?n is a Persian stew typically made with some kind of meat cooked in a sauce made of ground walnuts and pomegranate. I have adapted this recipe to be Plant Based Vegan by using tempeh as the “meat” and added some of our favorite veggies to make it even more hearty. The sauce is an explosion of sweet, tart and rich flavor that will make your tastebuds sing.
With the Walking Dead Season starting soon we wanted to share a recipe that nourishes and supports that all important zombie food source, human brains! Follow along with Jill "The Blade" Dalton as she makes a Nutritarian take on a Persian classic: Fesanjoon. This recipe is fully Vegan, Whole Food Plant Based, Salt Oil and Sugar Free, and fully packed with zombie fighting brain power and zombie apocalyptic flavor!
