Vegan Japanese Curry (easy and gluten free friendly)

Once upon a time, I was obsessed with Indian curry. Shortly after, I fell head-over-heels with Thai curry and enjoyed both heartily whenever and wherever I could.

Whole Wheat Baguette Recipe (vegan, oil free + healthy-ish)

Lately I’ve been cutting carbs…into slices, wedges, cubes, quarters, halves, and sometimes just in random pieces when I’m cooking something that will be blended or puréed later. Come on guys.
