Midweek Munchies

For this week, I’m not writing my gorcery list because I haven’t gone shopping in over a week (except to pick up a couple of things). But I thought I’d share a couple of easy recipes that my family and I enjoy.

Summer Pasta Salad

Easy Summer Pasta Salad
1 can cannellini beans (rinsed and drained)
2 large tomatoes diced
1-2 garlic cloves minced
1 bunch of basil leaves, rinsed, dried and chopped
1 T balsamic vinegar
2 T extra virgin olive oil
4 oz vegan mozzarella cheese or regular (optional)
12 oz farfalle pasta
salt and pepper to taste

Combine all ingredients (except pasta) in bowl and allow to sit while pasta cooks. When pasta is done, drain and toss with other ingredients. Serve & enjoy

vegan spinach dip

Creamy Spinach Dip
1 packet of dry vegetable soup mix (I used fantastic brand)
1 12oz box silken tofu
1 container vegan sour cream ( I use Tofutti Better than Sour Cream)
10 oz frozen spinach, thawed, squeezed and chopped
1 small jar artichokes, drained and chopped
Put tofu in food processor and blend until smooth. Add all other ingredients and combine well. Allow to sit in refrigerator for at least 1 hour. This is a great recipe if you’ve been wanting to add tofu to your diet. It is also a healthier alternative to the mayo and sour cream version and it’s very delicious!

    The dip sounds sooo good! We are not vegetarians. (Guess we are more like chickentarians.) But, anyway, we have switched to soy milk for health reasons, and I was looking for a sour cream alternative. I will try this tofutti stuff!

    These both look really good! I’m very tempted to make the pasta tomorrow. 🙂 Thanks for sharing the recipes!

    Thanks for the suggestions on my blog! I love wraps!

    This dip sounds FAB! I need to go to Nature’s Market and get some of these items since I can’t get them around here!

    The pasta looks great as well!
