Another healthy vegan dish, hard fork required, sorry can't help myself I had to make an upgrade pun. So if you haven't seen any of my other recipes I pick my own mushrooms from the forest and dry them, but you can also buy them from the shops. This is a great meal for during the week, because it is quick and easy to make. To start off I boil the mushrooms with 500ml water and half a teaspoon salt, I will be keeping the the left over water as a stock.
I boil the mushrooms for about 10 minutes, while I am making the sauce I get the pasta going to save time and it will be ready about the same time as the sauce.
Once the mushrooms are cooked I pick them out and save the water, chop up the mushrooms and fry with spray oil.
While it is frying I prepare the onions and garlic.
After frying the mushrooms for about 5 minutes I throw in some chopped onions.
Then some chopped up garlic.
Once the onions are translucent I throw in crumbled up smoked tofu.
I fry that for a couple minutes and add two cans of chopped tomatoes.
Then I add the mushroom stock that I kept aside.
While that is cooking I roughly chop up some black olives.
Then I let it simmer for a few minutes.
While it is simmering I chop up some fresh basil and chuck it in.
Once the pasta is cooked I mix it into the sauce and let it stand a couple minutes.
Then it is just a matter of dishing up and scoffing it down. Thanks for checking this recipe out, I hope you enjoy giving it a go.
