Happy Fat Tuesday, everyone! No celebrations in the streets, and no meat, so is it really happy? Yes, because vegan po' boys are surprisingly delicious. I have made them with broccoli and mushrooms before, and I loved them. This year's cauliflower version was surprisingly delicious. Honestly, anytime cauliflower tastes good, I'm surprised.
