Especially one that's perfect to add to our virtual recipe binder for future a use! This one comes to us from guest recipe contribute, Lauren Bossi over on the Plant Based on a Budget food blog and website. Make it your own by adding your favorite spices, flavors, and toppings. Speaking of which, have you tried the vegan sour cream by Follow Your Heart? It's very yummy. Enjoy.
