Rubina Sevadjian’s One-Pot Vegan Lenten Dish

Rubina Sevadjian

For those of you who don’t know Rubina Sevadjian, allow me
to introduce her. Rubina is an author, world-traveler, gardener, cook,
and a dear, albeit, long-distance friend.

are no specific amounts, but it sounds great – especially if you like pasta,
veggies, chili flakes and a LOT of garlic.

Read on and give it a try!
