This is a simple recipe for your weekend, it is also to celebrate 3 events, my 50th blog post, World Vegan Month and finally my birthday on Sunday! WO0HOO!
I have always been a huge fan of Italian food and it is safe to say that the majority of my 140 kilo body back in 2013 was made of Pizza dough. If you follow me on Instagram then you will have seen a couple of pictures of this recipe the other day. So here it is broken down for you to follow. Nice, healthy and more importantly it is a Vegan dish.
1 head broccoli
Handful of spinach
6 ripe tomatoes
1/2 punnet mushrooms
1 onion and three cloves garlic
1 bag of 'FreeFrom' Pasta Gluten and Dairy Free (you'll probably need to use half the bag, depending on how many people you are feeding.)
Fry some garlic and an onion in a saucepan chop the broccoli, asparagus and mushrooms up and add to the mix.
Grab 4 tomatoes throw them in a blender with a handful of spinach, a couple of mushrooms and half a cup of water. BLEND - Warning: it will look brown but that is okay!
Pour the sauce from the blender into the saucepan, add your last two whole tomatoes and simmer on a low heat for about 10-15 minutes while you cook your pasta. (I'm assuming that you know how to cook pasta....) The whole tomatoes will cook and then when you feel the time is right you can SQUASH them to spread the juiciness!
Season the sauce according to your taste, but all in all you'll have something fresh and easy to sink your teeth into.
If you are used to canned or other bolognese sauces and pasta with gluten you may be familiar with a bloated feeling after eating it. Well this recipe won't give you the bloaty belly! Unless you eat it all in one sitting and don't share... Remember, sharing is caring...
That is a wrap, I am by no means Gordon Ramsay, nor to I want to have the frown lines like he does. I often get into the kitchen and throw things together and hope they work, this one really did work for me and I hope it works for you!
Let me know in the comments if you like the idea of more recipes on the blog posts and I will look to do more in the future! Have a great weekend!
Stay Strong and Keep Moving!
