I love eating which is no secret to anyone who’s seen me on any platform. It’s always my goal to eat delicious food. It’s often believed that healthy and delicious don’t go together. I’m here to tell you, or write to you, that this is a false notion. You can eat delicious and nutritious at the same time. Exhibit A, this simple vegan spaghetti recipe.
I believe in seasoning not just because I’m Black but because flavor makes eating enjoyable. I’ll deny eating at all before I eat something I don’t enjoy. I’m a fan of enjoying every calorie without regret. So I created a low carb-ish, meat free taste simple to make vegan spaghetti. This was absolutely delicious. Using Banza Pasta is always a good alternative when you want the taste of a regular spaghetti but with a little less carbs. I’m personally not ready for veggie noodle alternatives.
Big Mountain’s Lion Mane Mushroom Crumble gives this dish that umami we all love in pasta dishes. Mushrooms are often fairly misjudged and disrescpected. If you’re not a mushroom fan, don’t worry. This looks like a ground meat and tastes the same. This is a great recipe for those who want to increase veggie intake and fiber without sacrificing flavor. My simple vegan spaghetti is great alternative to a classic spaghetti.
