Yummy Veggie Speghetti
Since David and I were dating, we have always made spaghetti...it has just made it's own transformation, like our marriage...and over time has gotten better and better. Here is our Vegan version. We ate this last night over brown rice pasta and the kids ate some yummy Costco bread with it. Here is what I did (sorry measurements are guess of what I think I did...)
While you make the sauce, boil your water for the pasta of your choice.
In the meantime, saute with a little olive oil and some raw sugar (helps bring out the the flavors in the veggies)
1/2 package of mushrooms, diced
1/2 package of firm tofu, diced (this was my kids first experience and they thought it was chicken..He..HE...HE..)
1 zucchini, diced
1/2 red pepper diced
1/2 green pepper diced
1/2 onion, diced
3-4 cloves of garlic diced
(guess I diced everything..that's funny!)
Saute above ingredients until veggies start to get soft. Once they are, add in three handfuls of chopped spinach.
Once spinach is wilted, add in your pan:
1 can of organic (15 oz) diced tomatoes with liquid
3 small cans (8 oz) organic no salt tomato sauce
1 small can tomato paste
2 things of water using one of the small tomato sauce containers
1 T. dried basil
1 T. dried oregano
1 cap full of balsamic vinegar
onion and garlic powder to taste
sea salt and pepper to taste
Bring all to a boil and then put a lid on it and let it simmer while your pasta cooks.
Tastes awesome as leftover lunch, like I had today!
