Not sure how I missed this, but for the whole month of October, the LA Times has been posting a vegan recipe a day.  I thought it would be good to direct you there, the recipes look amazing.  And since I don’t have a lot of truly vegan recipes in my arsenal, I’m glad to have the assist.

At least by posting this late,  you avoid the suspense of waiting for the next recipe and can scroll at your leisure through the month.  Enjoy!
