Isn’t it so frustrating when people say, “eating vegan is SO expensive”? We hear it all of the time and it definitely irks us a bit. To prove that misconception false, we created two healthy veggie-centric recipes that are not only light on your wallet but also super easy to make and of course mighty delicious. This maple & mustard glazed vegetable plate is hearty, wholesome, and packed with protein to keep you feeling satiated and satisfied.This recipe makes enough food for 2 full servings, and cost us just $2.12 per serving—talk about a bargain! I’m not sure about you, but I just love the combination of maple syrup and mustard on my vegetables. It adds the perfect sweetness with a kick!
