Onion Zucchini Pepper Cakes

Onion Zucchini Bell Pepper Cakes make the perfect vegetarian meal.

Roasted Asparagus, Garlic Mashed Potatoes w/ Mushroom Gravy, and Onion Zucchini Pepper Cakes.

That was our dinner last night. I’ve been cooking like mad lately and rarely post what we eat. Since the quarantine I basically live in the kitchen which I love ❤️I was especially proud of this meal because I used up bits and pieces of produce that were floating around in my fridge. My family was happy. I served Mando a plate of food and decided to photograph it right on the spot because deep down I knew there wouldn’t be any leftovers. This is the one photo captured. I did film myself making the meal step by step, and gave plant-based substitutes where I saw fit. Go to my stories if you’re interested in re-creating the cakes or the mushroom gravy…. it’s all there.
