Vegetable Pasta!

I made the choice to go vegan a while back and have been experimenting with recipes ever since. Just made this for the first time the other night and it came out tasting really really good.

I am usually pretty busy during the week, so I tend to make a bunch of food on Sunday or Monday and eat it until it's gone, so my measurements and quantities might be a little on the large side.

Start with two heads of broccoli, washed, and cut for pasta. I like to leave a bit of stem but you can do what you want. I do this first just cause it's the most time consuming and annoying.




Next, for the sauce, cut up 5-6 cloves of fresh garlic and a good amount of basil.





Put them in a bowl with a generous amount of EVOO and add the juice of 1-2 lemons.






Boil some water and add your pasta



Add the broccoli to your boiling pasta water. itll only take a minute or two to cook, so i usually put it in at 8 minutes if the pasta takes 10.




In a separate saute pan saute up whatever vegetables you want to use, I like Mushrooms, spinach, and cannellini beans. Make sure you put the spinach in last and only for a few seconds, it will reduce into nothing very quickly:





When everything is heated up in your saute pan, and after your strained your broccoli and pasta, mix it all together in the big pot:



Serve and enjoy.



This particular dish tasted a lot better the next day rather than immediately after I made it.

Would seem kind of plain any sauce? Me and my girlfriend turned vegan and we don't have a lot of time either. Do you got any more recipes?

I'm just making it up as I go and eating a lot of raw foods - vegetables, fruits and beans mostly.

Check out these two books for some great recipes:

The Ultimate Book of Vegan Cooking

Forks Over Knives Cookbook

I read an article a while back, can't remember the source unfortunately, that said Barilla Plus added very little nutritonal benefit, and you are better off eating Ronzoni Healthy Harvest:




I switched to this brand and love it, would highly recommend you try it.

Really? I eat barilla plus because of the insane amounts of protein in it. I'll do some research. If I'm going to eat pasta I want it to be the most bang for my calories.
