    This Vegan Buffalo Chickpea Quesadilla was excellent. I am not a vegan but I loved it so much! I always looking for Vegan recipes to eat less animal products. Every time I made a vegan food from the other channels that have a one million prescribed, it turned awful like I am eating healthy shit. I threw it away, and I wasted so much time, money and my energy.
    I was so disappointed to make a vegan food, taste was like a crap. Your channel and your recipes are amazing. Every thing I made from yours turned awesome, and it is same exact just like your videos unlike the other channel (The ingredients and the amounts of the recipes are so different) and it made me so confused to which one I should follow?!!!😲😲 Every time I followed the written recipes it turned like a crap and I put it in a garbage. I was so regretting to order that book.
    Nisha, I love your channel, your recipes and the way your are written is so easy to follow.
    Thank you for sharing your recipes! You are so beautiful and amazing. I am your fan and love your vegan foods even I am a omnivore.
