Greetings “followers!” Welcome in again to Zero528 website/blog featuring an eclectic collection of personal interests.

This entry features yet another yummy recipe which has been altered to vegan. It also is the first of many Zero528 vegan recipes which will be utilizing Lodge Cast Iron bakeware/cookware.

Why Lodge Cast Iron? I’ve always been interested and intrigued by the use of these products from a nostalgic and historical perspective and will be adding more to my collection soon.

Look for Lodge Dutch Oven ‘vegan’ recipes coming soon from Zero528.

Oh, and did I mention that all of the Lodge foundry Seasoned Cast Iron and Seasoned Carbon Steel products are manufactured in the USA!
