A few weeks ago I received an amazing present from Follow your Heart. A company that makes vegan products, delicious and not cardboard tasting food. I got a sample of their mozzarella cheese, their pepper jack cheese in slices and of course my favorite … Vegenaise. The picture of all that I got  is in my  Instagram account if you wanna head over there and like my profile would be amazing.

The minute I opened the package and saw the products I knew I wanted to prepare and share something super simple and delicious. This magic cilantro dressing is a home run at my house. My kids love it and you could use it as a spread, a dip or dressing.  As you can see, in this recipe   and  in this other, I am a huge fan of this product. It  just makes my life easier and makes my kids eat all their veggies (check this recipe for green beans, one of the favorites around here).
