Valentine’s Day is not about how much money you spend on someone, but how much time you spend on someone. So, what better way to show someone you care, then by making them handmade pasta? This recipe is not difficult at all, it just takes a bit of time and a lot of love. The pasta recipe is easily adaptable, and could be made into any shape, or take advantage of any fresh herbs you may have. The sauce is also very versatile, and could be made with a variety of nuts. The kabocha squash competes for the starring role in this dish, and pretty much cooks itself while you prepare the rest of the components. This recipe is sure to impress your loved one. Or, if you’re single, it’s sure to help you impress yourself.
Dan Dan Noodles are a pungent, spicy and complex Sichuan dish. I had them for the first time a few years ago, and ever since that first taste, I knew I had to find a recipe. However, many of the recipes out there call for a number of hard-to-find ingredients that I have never really wanted to track down. I stumbled upon a recipe at The Woks of Life a few months ago, and it seemed easy enough to make, and easy enough to veganize. So, here it is. This recipe comes together pretty quick, and it’s definitely greater than the sum of its parts. The “meat” part of this recipe can take many forms. I’ve used seitan in this recipe, but you could swap in hydrated TVP, mushrooms, or even tofu.
This recipe is a quick, easy, and healthy take on one of my favorite restaurant pasta dishes. The cauliflower alfredo is super easy, and it comes out so creamy and decadent, you don’t even slightly realize you’re just eating pureed cauliflower. The sun-dried tomatoes add an extra layer of umami, and the pesto pine nut parm adds the cheesiness you crave, with a hint basil. This is definitely a keeper.
