Easy Fresh & Savory Pasta, Vegan & Gluten-Free

Today we’re cooking up something extra fresh in the kitchen!

This Vegan & Gluten-Free Easy Fresh & Savory Pasta has recently become a go-to dinner at my house. The combination of flavors is light but it’s also filling and super satisfying. It’s a little Italian, a little Mediterranean and feels perfect for spring.

For the pasta, lately I’ve been loving these brown rice noodles (I also love their buckwheat noodles for an Asian stir-fry). I used a jar of artichoke hearts because I still haven’t gotten down the perfect method for roasting artichokes, plus it’s quite time-consuming.

I like top everything off with olive oil and fresh lemon juice but if you’re in a marinara mood that would also be delicious!

  1. What can be substituted for “nutritional yeast” in your EASY FRESH & SAVORY PASTA, VEGAN & GLUTEN-FREE recipe?

    • The nutritional yeast adds a cheesy flavor, so you could substitute a vegan cheese or just skip it all together!
