The Best GF Vegan Menudo from Spain

The Best GF Vegan Menudo from Spain

This is The Best GF Vegan Menudo from Spain! The original recipe veganized by my mum is gluten-free too!!! So extremely flavourful, meaty, and satisfying, everyone at home will love our Vegan Menudo!
My mum is here in Houston visiting us this summer and she’s been cooking all her best veganized dishes for us. Here is one of her very best ones!!!!
This dish is insanely comforting, warming, and delicious, you NEED TO TRY THIS RECIPE NOW!!!!
So so good, it's ready in less than 30 minutes!!! Watch the video where my mum will be personally showing you how to make this delicious dish!
It's made with our Vegan & GF Chorizo that is so flavourful and TASTY, you won’t believe it! & protein-packed! But if you don't have time to make it (although you should really do it, you won't regret it!!), you can always add any good quality crumbled vegan chorizo from the grocery store!
My mum makes this recipe using oyster mushrooms when she is in Spain. She has very easy access to them. But unfortunately, we haven't found good quality ones here in Houston, so we have had to settle with adding standard white mushrooms to this delicious stew. It tastes amazing no matter what, but if you get a hold of oyster mushrooms, please do add those, as their texture is much meatier and authentic.
If you're from Houston and know a place where we could buy good quality oyster mushrooms, please let us know in the comments. We would love to do so! Thank you so much!!
