I had two recipe requests last week. One I could ignore or put off until after open enrollment. Two? With two you get dinner.
Fake Meat & Low Carb Pasta = Great Meal
¼ teaspoon Garlic Salt
1/3 cup + 1 teaspoon Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
1 ½ cup uncooked Dreamfield’s Low Carb Pasta
Florets of one stalk of Broccoli
5 ounces Vegan Chicken
6 cloves Garlic, minced
¼ Roasted Red Pepper, sliced into small strips
1 Button Mushroom, sliced
Parmesan Cheese (real or fake), optional
Add Garlic Salt and a teaspoon of the oil to a large pot of cold water. Bring to a boil. Blanch the Broccoli for two minutes and remove. Bring the water back to a rolling boil and add pasta. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 9 minutes.
While the pasta is cooking, warm the oil and then add the Broccoli, Garlic, Red Pepper, and Mushroom. Cook slowly for 5 minutes. Add the Chicken. Continue until the Garlic softens and turns golden and the Chicken is warmed all the way through.
Drain the Pasta and return to the pot. Slice the Chicken into strips and mix everything together in the pot. Divide into two dishes, sprinkle a little cheese on top, and serve with a tossed salad.
Feel free to change ALL of this. I would like to hear what you do to make this even better.
