This was the first time I was trying both the dishes and they turned out well .I was a bit varied about the polenta,but I liked it as I had made it very spicy.Thanks Susan for the wonderful recipes and obviously a warm plate of this delicious vegan meal is off to Vaishali who is currently hosting Tried & Tasted:FatFreeVeganKitchen,an event by dear Zlamushka.
