This Vegan Bruschetta Pasta recipe is packed with fresh basil, tomatoes, and balsamic vinegar.
It comes together in 15 minutes using simple ingredients. This recipe is ideal for meal prepping. Also, for an easy 30 minute meal on a busy evening. Another great tip is using a non-stick pan. As a result, you get to use less fat for a healthier dish. While adding beefless crumbles to your Vegan Bruschetta Pasta recipe is optional, it makes the meal more comforting.
THIS PASTA IS
- Easy to make
- High in fiber and nutrients
- Can be made gluten-free
Without a doubt, my non-vegan family enjoyed this meal so much. Furthermore they ended up making more trips to the kitchen.
INGREDIENTS AND SUBSTITUTIONS
Garlic – I recommend fresh cloves of garlic minced finely, but you can use refrigerated minced garlic in a pinch.
Fresh basil – Using fresh is always better but dried will work as well.
Fresh tomatoes – I used grape tomatoes but any kind will do. Simply chop up large ones into approximately 1/2 inch pieces, and halve or quarter cherry tomatoes.
Shredded parmesan cheese – I used a vegan brand but feel free to replace it for the one of your choice. You can add vegan mozzarella or regular if vegetarian.
Balsamic vinegar – This is my favorite ingredient. It adds a delicious mild flavor.
Extra-virgin olive oil, kosher salt, and black pepper
Spices – Dried oregano, basil, cilantro, adobo (optional), onion powder. Feel free to add your choices of spices.
Beefless Crumbles – Although is it not necessary, I love using beefless crumbles. It adds more flavor and comfort to the recipe. You can replace it with mushrooms or any other meat replacement.
Broccoli – You can add more veggies for more nutrients and fiber.
In conclusion, I always add my Puerto Rican seasonings to my recipes. For this one, I used adobo and veggies that are included in my Puerto Rican Sofrito recipe.
