One of the hardest parts of being a new vegan (or even an old seasoned vegan) is trying to keep up with all the new products out there. I must have spent over $50 looking for the "right" vegan cheese my first year being a vegan and I have over 50 vegan/vegetarian cookbooks in my arsenal but not all the recipes are the greatest. I’m the first born so I’m used to being a Guinea Pig and now I’m your Vegan Guinea Pig. So here are my recommendations and critiques. Let me know what you think!

Vegan Mofo: Fusilli with Spinach and Sweet Red Pepper Sauce

One of my favorite methods of creating new recipes is just to open up my pantry (which has enough dry goods to feed a family of 8 through a long winter) and my fridge and just start throwing a meal together from the first couple of things I see. I’m knee deep in midterms right now so I don’t have time to make complex meals that require more than 1 pot or 3 or 4 steps. My latest recipe for fusilli (using brown rice pasta) with spinach and sweet red pepper sauce fit the bill perfectly. All I needed to do was prepare the pasta. Add all the ingredients for the sauce in a blender combine it with the cooked pasta and spinach and voila! A meal so good it makes you forget we are at the periphery of The Great Recession as my friend Stiles would say.
