Hi there. I’m willing to bet you clicked on this Pasta with vegan scallops recipe because the pictures looked divine. Or maybe it was because you love pasta? Whatever the reason, welcome!
I love pasta dishes. And so does my family. But finding a quality nutritious vegan pasta recipe can be hard. After endless searches, I gave up trying. The other day I had craving for pasta but I still had the same dilemma – no recipe. And then, like a light bulb turning on, it clicked… I can make one! And that’s what I did.
I am very excited to share this new creation with you. I loved it, my family loved it, and I am hoping you will too.
All you are going to need to create this masterpiece is 15 minutes (yes, only 15 minutes!) and 12 easily accessible ingredients. If you follow a vegan based diet, you should have most, if not all of these ingredients in your kitchen already.
Traditionally, a pasta dish would come with some form of meat for taste and protein. Obviously, we are not going to add any meat, but that doesn’t mean we lose the nutritional value. In fact, by adding oyster mushrooms as our ‘scallops,’ we’re meeting and perhaps exceeding the health benefits of traditional meat filled pasta recipes. And not to mention they taste divine. Oyster mushrooms are high in protein, zinc, potassium, and calcium just to name a few. They also boast an impressive level of antioxidants.
Fun fact: Oyster mushrooms have been a choice for many for thousands of years. It is said that the Chinese have been using these mushrooms for natural medical remedies for at least the past 3,000 years.
Pasta with vegan scallops are a perfect lunch or dinner meal as it is:
This recipe will make enough for two servings. If you are feeding a family and need more, simply double the amount of ingredients you will need and cook as per the instructions below. For any left overs, simply place them in an airtight container for 24-48 hours.
And there you have it! I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do. Be sure to let me know if you try this recipe
