Vegan Cuban Picadillo

Vegan Cuban Picadillo (c) The Comfy Cabin, 2022

An aromatic and delicious comfort food for the chilly weather is Cuban picadillo. It’s great to eat any time of the season. I created a vegan version of this savory dish. Cuban picadillo is a fast recipe and versatile that can be served over rice, great for tacos, beans, or sprinkled over your favorite salad.
