tajine sweet potatoes prunes One advantage of eating vegan is that you probably have all ingredients for home-cooked meals in your pantry, all the time. Another advantage, especially in freezing winter times like now, is how filling and warming vegan foods are, based as they are on grains, like lupini beans, which deserve to be better known, and lots of vegetables. Especially root vegetables, as in the tajine of sweet potatoes and prunes pictured above.
