  10. Enjoy!

I just picked up this 90s vegetarian cookbook from one of my local thrift shops and it is PACKED with amazing ideas. I have a feeling it’s going to be my new favorite guide for the fall and winter. I’ve already got 20 pages flagged and that was just from flipping through it for a short second. Anyways, I had never heard of a grunt and the name is obviously eye-catching. The recipe in the book is not vegan and it calls for strawberries or strawberries and rhubarb. I thought I had both of those things and actually had neither so I made it with blueberries and it was delicious. You could use any vegan butter for this recipe and any vegan milk. Earth Balance and oat milk are just my comfort zone. I served my Grunts straight up with some powdered sugar but I think it could use a little coconut cream or vegan yogurt. Still delicious though and it was INCREDIBLY quick and easy to make. Good luck with your grunts! Cheers!
