How To Prepare Easy Vegan Rotini Pasta Recipe
To prepare this Easy Vegan Rotini Pasta Recipe, I cooked brown rice rotini according to the package directions, drained it, tossed with olive oil and set it aside. In the meantime, I cook onions, garlic with Italian seasonings. Then I added beefless grounds, I used GARDEIN brand which is vegan and gluten-free.
You can substitute with cooked lentils or tofu crumbles or your favorite protein here, I then stirred in pasta sauce followed by cooked pasta and vegan cheese. For the cheese, I used DAIYA SHREDS, but you can also substitute with my CHEESE SAUCE recipe in my Vegan MacNCheese recipe. This is so easy to prepare and it will be a huge hit with your family!
