My husband does not eat nuts or seeds at all. Would white beans be an acceptable substitute for the cashew, and if so what amount would you suggest? Thank you

I tried using beans instead and it didn’t taste good at all. It was sort of creamy but not anything I wanted to make or eat again.

I made this recipe today and it was delicious. I used Hungarian Sweet Paprika instead of smoked paprika. But otherwise I followed the recipe and loved it. Thanks you so much for creating it.

I think I have had issues (feeling bad after) eating nutritional yeast. I may experiment with it again sometime but until then, would this be good without or would you recommend a substitute? Thank you!

You could always add a tsp of white miso instead of the nutritional yeast.

Made this for dinner tonight. Loved it! Perfect for a chilly fall/winter day. I made a note to add peas to it. color and veggies! . I love your cooking demos every week, and usually make them.
Thank you!

This is amazing! wow! I usually steer clear of nuts but decided to give this a try. Oh my gosh! It is SO good. I used the Thai Kitchen noodles as I had them in my pantry. Thank you! YUM

Hi Jill, can I ask you what is your sauté pan size? Thank you!

Jill Dalton July 6, 2021 - 10:42 am

Mine is labeled as a 3qt pan

This dish was restaurant level good!! Not even kidding! I made it with whole-wheat pasta and I’m so not missing anything from pre wfpb days! Paired with broccoli and cauliflower.
I felt like I had the most decadent meal and wouldn’t believe it was wfpb (if it wasn’t for the fact that I made it). Lol :o)

This was amazing! My kids even loved it! I have so many vegan cookbooks, but so far, your recipes are winning in health and taste! Thank you.

This is my favorite ever. I can make it on a busy night so fast and my SO loves it so much. I’m the only WFPB SOS free in the house (for years now) so I cook a lot, this one is SO AWESOME and simple. Thank you☺️

Lindsey September 1, 2021 - 9:11 pm

I love this recipe so much that I’ve made it 3 times in the past 2 weeks!
