Vege-licious chef and owner, Bettina Thomas shared her recipe for a delicious vegan soup with Chanel 5’s Lelan Statom on Talk of the Town during their “meatless Monday” segment on Feb. 24, 2020.
The soup is a sweet potato and collard green soup filled with flavor and so hearty it’s like a vege stew!
