It’s still cold outside and my body has been craving carbs! I know the salad days are ahead so why not enjoy more starch while it’s still sweater and sweats weather?
This is a quick and easy-to-make dinner; you can opt to use other veggies instead of the zucchini and summer squash. I would, however, recommend keeping the tomatoes in the dish because it gives it a bit more punch.
You can easily double this recipe, but I would recommend using only 1 cup of vegan sour cream.
MUSHROOMS! They are not plants but specifically members of the fungi family and are more closely related to animals and humans with their unique composition. Mushrooms get their nutrition from organic matter, unlike plants that produce their food through photosynthesis. And, like humans, they need food, water, and oxygen to survive. Another fun note is that fungi are the most significant forms of life on earth that can grow and expand for miles, underground, in search of food.
There are so many varieties available and, I recommend using a combination of at least 3 different types of mushrooms with this recipe.
Mushrooms also provide antioxidants and nutrients that may contribute to heart health and protect the body from certain cancers.
These mushrooms are excellent served with freshly made garlic toasts but are also great stuffed into a pita pocket and topped with a dash of vegan parmesan or tzatziki.
A huge shout out to Twospoons.ca for posting their mushroom pasta recipe which was featured on Vegan Feed Gram. It was a great inspiration for my creation shown here. This is a super-fast dinner idea and takes less than 30 minutes from start to finish.
You can experiment with different types of veggies and also pasta. I used what I had in my pantry and am delighted with the deliciousness of this dish!
