I came up with an absolutely delicious, easy vegan and gluten-free lunch. It tastes like pasta in Alfredo sauce (basically...)
This is enough for 2 people:
2 fist fulls of brown rice pasta (I used spaghetti)
1/4 cup hummus (store-bought or homemade)
1/4 cup water
2 tbsp nutritional yeast
Liberal sprinkling of sea salt and pepper
Splash of olive oil (optional)
2 handfuls of spinach
About a quarter cup of chopped nuts (I used almonds)
Boil noodles until tender. Drain in a colander, rinse off starchiness and set aside. Add a bit of water (a couple tbsps) to the pot and return to stove. Add in spinach, cover and steam for about 30 seconds. Remove pot from stove, add in hummus, water, yeast, sea salt and pepper. Add in noodles, and drizzle with a bit of oil (optional). Stir in nuts. Serve!
This was a perfect lunch! Feel free to add any sort of vegetables or legumes or nuts to the pasta.
And we made the best chocolate chip cookies! Aren't they cute? We're thinking about opening an Etsy store to sell our baked goods. We'll keep you updated with that endeavour.
