I came across a recipe on Instagram originally posted by MegunUnprocessed and it looked interesting. I thought I would add my own touches, ingredients, and season and roast the cherry tomatoes rather than cook on the stovetop. The results were nothing short of spectacular.
There are several new vegan feta kinds of cheese on the market these days and this was my first time cooking with the Trader Joe’s brand. I think I will always opt for this vegan feta because the taste was smooth and creamy rather than overly pungent.
You can use any type of pasta and it is also ok to use dried, rather than fresh basil but the fresh, in my opinion, definitely makes a better pasta dish.
The word Eurasian means a combination of European, or European American, and Asian cultures. When I made this recipe I was trying to create crispy-crunchy Brussels sprouts that had an emphasis on Italian flavors. My decision to use Pad Thai rice noodles seemed like just the perfect and unexpected accompaniment to the dish. Additionally, the rice noodles are gluten-free so, in my mind, a winner!
You can serve the Brussels Sprouts on their own as a side dish or mixed with traditional pasta but I would strongly suggest you first try using rice noodles.
I went light on the red pepper flakes, which can be adjusted to individual taste. I used the CHICKENLESS Better than Bouillon however the vegetable variety would also work great.
This dish also works great for leftovers but I recommend adding a splash of water and a drizzle of olive oil before reheating.
Mushrooms! Yes Please!
I am always stuffing portobello mushrooms with whatever fresh veggie is on hand and most times, the outcome is quite good. This recipe comes together from start to finish in about an hour and is well worth the time! If you are short on time, you can make the filling the night before, stuff the clean Portobello caps, and bake the next night.
