Vegan Hot Pot


Yes, there are a lot of ingredients in this vegan hot pot recipe, but that’s part of the fun. If you’re looking for an enjoyable, communal meal, this is the one for you. I say go all out with it: invite some friends over, spread the veggies out in little bowls like they do at hot pot restaurants, and concoct some dipping sauces. Pro tip: you can buy a quality hot pot - with a heating element - online for around fifty bucks (it makes a great birthday or holiday gift for your foodie friends, I’m just sayin).
