I wish I could take all the credit for this recipe, but it was actually inspired by a YouTube video from Julie Pacheco that I will link HERE.  Hers was not vegan however, but no matter.  Like I am saying all the time if you see something you love, chances are you can veganize it.  I can't tell you how many times I have made this since seeing it on her video.  We love it and I know you will to, so 

Let's get started!
