So for my carnivore followers, don’t worry, you don’t have to be a vegetarian to love this recipe. You just have to make it!
So how did I decide on this vegetarian ceviche for my next feature mexican appetizer?
I decided to reach out to some of my vegetarian foodie friends and ask them what should be my next vegetarian mexican appetizer?
