Chai Pumpkin Cake
Recipe Intro From edgarraw
A vegan cake using chai and pumpkin
Chai Pumpkin Cake. I re-made this recipe for my families thanksgiving, I wanted to show them how easy it is to eat vegan foods. Not only is this holiday full of slaughter and torture of turkeys, but we are supporting the unsustainable practice of agriculture. Hopefully with my knowledge of regenerative/sustainable agriculture I can be part of the new generation that changes this system from inside out. One thing I do know is that if we (the people) boycott a certain product, we the people will prevail. I say vote with your dollar and that's how we will change this world for the better. . -@edgarraw
