TASTY VEGETABLE PASTA WITH CASHEW BUTTER

Vegetable Pasta Topped with Cashew Butter & Sunflower Seeds

Hello hello

Firstly, thanks for coming by and checking out this blog post.

Like many households we frequently turn to pasta for our meals. It’s quick, easy, tasty and I love that there are so many pasta variations. In addition, it’s also a dish that I can easily add meat to for my dear hubs and daughter. What’s unique about this pasta dish is that I have topped it with a spoonful of raw organic cashew butter. If you haven’t tried this, please do because its absolutely divine. There are alternatives out there so if you aren’t a fan of cashews, try macadamia, hazelnut or even peanut butter.

So whats in the dish
Spaghetti
Mushrooms
Tomato
Carrot
Capsicum
Parsley
Garlic
Onions
Olive oil
Powdered vegetable stock
Pepper
Organic agave nectar
Sunflower seeds
Raw organic cashew butter

The simple cooking instructions

1. Cook the spaghetti noodles, following the instructions on the packet and then place in a strainer when ready.

2. While you allow the pasta noodles to cool, add a small amount of olive oil to the pan and toss in some garlic and onions. Lightly stir until brown and then add in your chopped up mushroom, tomato, carrot and capsicum.

3. Gently stir all your vegetables until slightly soft and then add in, a teaspoon of powdered vegetable stock and your desired amount of pepper, agave nectar, parsley and a little water. Continue to stir until all ingredients are well mixed in together.

4. Once vegetables are cooked and tomatoes are nice and soft, stir in the spaghetti noodles.

Serve hot with cashew butter, sunflower seeds and extra parsley.

Enjoy!

QUICK & EASY VEGETABLE CURRY

Quick and Easy Guide to Making Vegetable Curry

Hi everyone

I love making curry for the family as it’s quick, easy and tasty. For lunch today, I made hubby and I some vegetable curry which I can have again for lunch tomorrow and even enough to freeze for later down the week when I am too busy to cook.

I am certainly no pro at cooking curries so I tend to use curry paste from a jar and add in some extra bay leaves, pepper, agave nectar and galangal. For extra creaminess, I also  add in some coconut milk.

To serve, I just spoon some of the curry over brown rice and top it with some fresh coriander and roughly chopped almonds. Voila!

Since I am the only one in my immediate and extended family that is vegetarian, I tend to get asked how do you do it? Does that mean your husband and baby is vegetarian as well? So what do you eat?. Well peoples, you will be surprised how easy it really all is and what kinds of delicious foods I really do eat. This curry dish is one of many and whats great about curries is that I can easily add in meat for hubby. All I need to do is set some aside in a separate pot for me and then add the meat in the portion for him while its cooking.

You are very welcomed to message me for further information on this dish.

WEEKEND DINING

Weekend dining gives me a good excuse to get dressed. I don’t tend to go over the top but do like to make an effort to look neat.

The heels were a hand me down from my work colleague – I love them!
