Here’s another vegan and gluten-free recipe for you, this time it’s linguine with mushroom and bell pepper. I can eat mushroom everyday if I could! Do you know that it’s the only plant that is rich in Vitamin D? It’s also a good source of fiber, B vitamins and minerals. I use different kinds of mushrooms (depending on availability) and cook it multiple ways (depending on what I’m feeling).
It’s gluten-free linguine because I used pasta made from chickpea. Is there a difference in the taste? none at all, except that it cooks faster than traditional pasta made from wheat like semolina or durum.
If you know how to saute and boil, then you know how easy it is to cook this delicious meal. I remember growing up, my grandmother used to tell me “if you know how to boil, you know how to cook”. Makes perfect sense.
I also used nutritional yeast for this recipe. One of the struggles a new vegan face is how to replace cheese. Well, there are several vegan cheese brands available so that should be the least of your worry. You can also make your own (see my recipe) or use nutritional yeast as most describe its taste being quite similar, whether used as topping or as ingredient. Noochy Licious by Gloriously Vegan is made in the USA. Their unfortified yeast is 100% organic and naturally loaded with protein, vitamin Bs, antioxidants and minerals. It has no synthetic additives like many other nutritional yeasts and is low in calories, gluten-free, and MSG free. Unfortified simply means it has no Vitamin B12. If you’re vegan, it’s best to take supplements rather than rely on fortified food so you can get the recommended allowance (for reference, I take 2500mcg once a week). I have a post dedicated to this, if you’re curious. I also used garlic herb seasoning, I tell you, I have 50+ herbs and spices because friends and family know that it’s the the perfect gift for moi, yeah more than makeups actually. So let’s go over the recipe, shall we?
