vegan black bean rotini and ricotta

vegan black bean rotini and ricotta

Creating delicious food in the kitchen is a special kind of love art project. It's this feeling of taking time to treat and care for myself. And how often do we do that, really take a pause and do something wholesome for ourselves? This cooking adventure in my clothes free kitchen did just that for me.

Since moving into my new place, I haven’t yet acquired all the requisite cooking tools. Indeed, baking proves challenging with no baking dishes. So, form my vegan rotini and ricotta, I borrowed the vegan tofu basil ricotta from the recipe linked below and paired it with Trader Joe’s black bean rotini. Then, I sautéed some kale mix to create a delicious dinner.

Let me say this. Sometimes “vegan” versions of things do not work for me. In fact, I often toss the “vegan” version of things out the window and just settle. And when I saw the tofu basil ricotta in that recipe, I felt a ton of skepticism. However, when flavored well, this tofu basil ricotta actually tastes REALLY darn good. It does not taste like ricotta cheese, but it has wonderful texture and flavor.

Ingredients

  • 1 package Trader Joe’s black bean rotini
  • 2 blocks of firm tofu
  • garlic powder
  • sea salt
  • olive oil
  • 8 fresh basil leaves
  • 1 package Trader Joe’s kale mix
  • 1/4 cup chopped red onion
  • 1 serrano pepper
  • sun-dried tomatoes (optional)

Directions

Rotini

Tofu basil ricotta

Prepare the black bean rotini per instructions on the package. Once the cooking time passes (usually 8-10 minutes), remove from heat and place rotini in a strainer. Run warm water over it to rinse. Set aside.

Tofu basil ricotta

Gently squeeze the blocks of tofu to remove excess water. Place in a blender or food processor. (I suggest a food processor, because the blender doesn’t handle the tofu as well.) Add the basil, sea salt and garlic powder to taste. I also added just a touch of olive oil to help with blending. Blend / process until smooth.

Kale mix

Chop up the red onion and serrano pepper. Put a touch of cooking oil (e.g. avocado oil or olive oil) in a pan. Add the onion and pepper and sauté lightly. Then add the kale mix and sauté lightly for a few seconds. Add sea salt, garlic and any other seasoning of your choice, if you like.

Chow down Place the rotini on a plate. Add the kale mix and then the tofu basil ricotta. I also sprinkled a few pieces of sun-dried tomatoes, but that’s optional. Chowing down, however, is not optional. Dig in!

kale and seitan soup

As the winter seasons digs in, my body is in need of healthy things. Today’s recipe is one of the ways in which I give myself good things.

It’s interesting how much havoc stress can wreak on the body. With stresses rising in some areas of my life, unhealthy habits began to kick in. In addition, sleep went out the door and hadn’t returned home for a while. For the second time in a 1-month period I fell sick, so I took it as a sign to slow down and listen.

Part of that slowing down involved looking again at my eating and making adjustments. These days I take to soups often. Soups are wonderful, because they are an easy way to combine and consume lots of healthy ingredients. So, for this post, I share a recent soup I put together. It’s quick, easy and delicious. You can either eat it alone if you want something light, or have it as a side to main course.

Chop radish, habanero pepper, seitan and red onion and set aside. Then, put 1 tsp olive oil into a pan and add in the chopped items as well as the spices (garlic, sea salt, cayenne, ginger).
