|A cheesy meal guaranteed to make a belly feel immensely good.|
|Hopefully, it's here to stay-- forever and ever.|
Still, I quite enjoyed amazing combinations of pasta made from vegetables and spiced fava bean mash with the creamy richness of Daiya's premier artisan cheese. In fact, this meal-- which can serve up to 6-- left me feeling a little on the fancy side of life.
Veggie Penne With Mashed Fava Beans & "Cheese" Ingredients and Preparation
1 package veggie penne (or any other pasta is fine)
1 15oz can Westbrae Natural Organic Fava Beans, drained
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
1 teaspoon Frontier Coop Italian Seasonings (or any other brand)
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon turmeric
1 teaspoon coriander
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
a few shavings of Daiya Jalapeno Havarti
Cook pasta according to directions.
In a food processor or blender, combine fava beans with nutritional yeast, cumin, turmeric, coriander, salt, and black pepper, pulsing gently. Do not let it turn into completely mushy puree. You need it to have a squashed appearance.
Once pasta is drained, lower heat on stove, and add in fava bean mixture and cheese, letting latter melt into the dish. Stir continuously for five minutes or so, making sure nothing sticks to the pot.
