Everybody loves a go-to delicious meal for those evenings where you just have no time or no energy left. It has to taste amazing, be healthy and cause no energy output. Well, I will introduce you to my saving grace. This is my version of a Lazy Low Carb Vegan Pasta.
I adore this recipe! It is easy, simple and tastes so good. It is also extremely filling and leaves awesome left-overs for lunch the next day. It only gets better when re-heated.
This is perfect for those nights in the Fall that are cool and you are looking for something that is home-cooked yet will keep you lean and takes no time to make. You can keep this recipe extremely easy by purchasing the two main ingredients. If you want to get creative you can also make this complete recipe from scratch.
The bonus to this recipe is you end up eating enormous amounts of vegetables while thinking you are having a carb-loading pasta overindulgence.
If you love pasta… you’re welcome.
Note: The broccoli slaw that I use (to keep this super easy) is in a large bag and has 13 cups. It contains shredded carrots, cabbage but is mainly broccoli stems. You, of course, can shred these vegetables yourself if you are so inclined.
Note: Again, with the tomato sauce I picked mine up for the simple throw-together recipe that this is. I love the Simply Natural Organic Brand in the Tomato Pasta Sauce with Roasted Red Pepper flavor.
This recipe is vegan, gluten free, low carb, dairy free, fiber-packed, mostly veggies, easy to make and very clean.
