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 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.
Dinner earlier this week:
Stirfry veggies in the wok
mushrooms, zucchini, carrot, broccoli, onion, artichokes, spinach, garlic, truffle oil, braggs, lemon, over wild rice
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.

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.
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:
marinated teriyaki tofu + snap peas + scallion
the rolls below, were cute little sushi balls with veggies rolled onto rice:
beans soaked overnight
I used these beans to make a very hearty soup and even made vegan cornbread.
This is one of my favorite dinners to make. Falafel with a tahini sauce, hummus, and couscous, there is also soy protein on the side.
