DIYZucchini Pesto Pasta Recipe

zucchini pesto pasta recipe

I know we’ve all heard about the big zucchini noodle thing happening–they’re kind of having a moment–but for me, I’m always left craving something more. Which is why whenever I serve up zucchini noodles, I like to mix them in half and half style with real noodles. It’s a healthy way to truly satisfy that pasta craving and sneak in a few more veggies. I’ve paired these noodles with my favorite, crazy simple vegan pesto because something about eating a gigantic bowl of greens just feels good inside, but you can pair your zucchini noodle/real noodle bowl with just about any sauce for an amazing and indulgent feeling dish. I also tossed in a few sautéed veggies to really up the healthy factor. I promise, this version won’t leave you craving anything at all!

DIYCheesy Vegan Pumpkin Pasta

cheesy vegan pumpkin pasta recipe

Do you ever just crave a gigantic bowl of creamy, cheesy pasta? Yeah, same. Which is where the inspo for this Cheesy Vegan Pumpkin Pasta came from. This pasta gets its creaminess from cashew milk, it’s cheesy, salty, savory flavors from nutritional yeast, and a little extra bite from the addition of white wine. The biggest bonus is that the wine is totally necessary for this recipe, but you only need 1/3 cup, so cheers to sipping and simmering. You’re welcome.

DIYVegan Jade Rice Sushi Recipe

make your own sushi!

I don’t want to claim that these sushi rolls contain magical powers, but I do know that this is one one of the first dinners I ever made with my Tinder-date-turned-fiance, so I’ll let you guys be the judges. Homemade sushi is not only awesome because it’s super fun and interactive, but you also end up with so much sushi that there is usually enough for leftovers, which never ever happens when you go out to an actual sushi restaurant. It also makes for an awesome date night meal because it gives you something to do with your hands while you make small talk and discretely guzzle Sapporos (just me?). But seriously, a little hard work and flirting with the end result being a delicious platter of sushi to feast on seems like a big win all around!
