Roasted red pepper ‘Cream’ sauce – Vegan

I am pretty flexible. I don’t like routines and seldom legalistic. Somedays my husband wishes I had a bit more structure. That is the way our house approaches the Daniel fast, we are flexible. Some say you MUST ONLY EAT RAW veg at every meal. Call be a bit of a rebel but I say…

Vegetarian chilli
