Amazing Vegan Bowl Recipe with Nutritional Yeast Sauce

Baby Beet Green Smoothie

Since I was moving into a friend’s apartment I was able to plant my herb/vegetable garden in the spring long before I moved in. The garden thrived in my absence. Apparently my friend/roommate has a green thumb. We planted beets, spinach, swiss chard, pak choy, tomatoes, and tons of herbs. So for my first green smoothie I thought why not venture into my green garden. Continue reading
