tomato basil pasta

Such a lovely light, summery vegetarian pasta that I enjoy occasionally for lunch or dinner.  This makes enough for 1-2 people.


Tomato Basil pasta


1 T evoo
1 clove of garlic
1 shallot
1 lg tomato
1-2 T basil
2 -3 T spinach
2-3 handfuls of bowties
couple artichoke hearts, quartered
a squeeze of lemon

Add whatever you like, this is pasta you can’t mess this up.  To keep it simple, you really only need tomato, basil, garlic, olive oil, s + p and some type of pasta.

First, get the ingredients chopped up.  Start the pasta boiling and warm the evoo in a sauce pot.  Add the garlic & shallot to the evoo and saute on medium low heat for a few minutes.  Then, add the tomatoes and cook several minutes on medium heat.  Season with s + p, add the basil and spinach and cook a few more minutes.  Add the artichokes (I love artichokes and try to sneak them in anywhere I can) and squeeze of lemon, along with the bowtie pasta.  Stir together, if you like add parmesan or nutritional yeast.

whole wheat couscous

This bowl full of goodness was so very light….what a great summer dish.  I barely boiled the zucchini and broccoli and couscous.  Then added garbanzo beans, parsley, lemon and braggs.

easter basket

My wonderful husband surprised me with this almost vegan Easter basket. The soap, mints, chapsti and cookies are all vegan. I love reese’s eggs, so those were a sweet surprise. I hope everyone enjoyed their Easter Sunday.

sushi nite

A couple weeks ago, we made sushi and they turned out delicious!  I took quite a few pics, but I have been slow about editing them.  The things that I have a difficult time with is making the sushi rice (it usually comes out gummy) and cutting the rolls.  So, I hope to keep practicing and improving!  Enjoy the photos!

Now for the pics:

avocado + vegan tofutti cream cheese + shredded carrot + scallion, in a soy wrap
avocado roll

avocado + carrot nigiri, and marinated teriyaki tofu + scallion nigiri

blanched asparagus + tofutti cream cheese + bacos – surprisingly this was a FAV! credit to Ben, he made this one up

I used these beans to make a very hearty soup and even made vegan cornbread.
