I decided to check out Ellen Degeneres' new Vegan Blog that's a part of her television show's website. While still a work in progress, I found a few good vegan meal ideas. The recipes were lacking a lot of detail so I prepared one and recorded more accurate measurements and cooking techniques.
I love Ellen and really admire how she brings the vegan lifestyle mainstream. She has the unique ability to highlight famous people, families and products which support this admirable and healthy way of living.
Enjoy her tacos!
