Vegan MoFo Day 20: An Old Favorite
Last night we had mounds of dishes to do, and it being Monday, we were a little beat. So instead of bringing new, awesome food-- I'll show an old faithful. The creamy creole pasta. It's basically earth balance or olive oil and any type of thickener [[all purpose flour, chickpea flour, brown rice flour]] mixed in a pan in equal parts. Plus, one cup of soy milk and a half cup of vegetable broth or wine. Then some seasoning and sauteed vegetables. Check out the complete recipe.
We probably eat this creamy creole pasta once a week. I'm not sure how this ended up being our go-to meal, but it did. I guess it's a no-hassle way to get protein, carbs, and vegetables all in one meal, glued together with some creamy spice. And you don't really need a certain assortment of vegetables. I'll use spaghetti squash for pasta, broccoli, zucchini, tomatoes, varying types of onions, bell pepper, spinach, kale, tofu, seitan, tempeh, fake chicken patties-- you name it, it works.
Anyway, Andrew's birthday is this Sunday and the plan is vegan lazagna and a cheesecake that I will be decorating. I'm pretty excited about it and hope to get some good shots for you all. If you're on twitter, give @andrewwarner2 a birthday shout out. Happy Tuesday.
