This recipe is a Betty Crocker recipe that I modified to make vegan.

Sometimes we need to save time but still want something healthy. Bisquick baking mix is a great ingredient because it combines the dry baking ingredients you would normally have to measure out. I’m not sure if all Bisquick is vegan but the heart healthy version below is. This recipe can also be made more simple by buying frozen broccoli, although I used fresh. These taste great warm, but can also be served at room temperature or put inside your lunch box for any easy light lunch or snack.
