Day 2: Kinda lazy vegan convenience foods

OzVeganMoFo
When Cam was cooking this last night, we discussed just how much pasta and tomato sauce we ate when we first became vegan (I became vegan after Cam but I did the same thing!).  It’s funny how much cheap pasta sauce has evolved, thanks to the gentrification of the store brands.  I buy a lot of the store brands stuff – especially ‘cause I cook a lot from scratch.  Plus, why pay more money to the large international conglomerates when you can pay less and get the same thing?
But I digress….
This one was a Puttanesca in the You’ll love Coles range.  It had both green and black olives and was tasteeeee!  It’s fun finding new ninja vegan foods.
And yes, we did use the moose pasta – I think it looks extra evil with the red sauce!

I love puttanesca. We make it from scratch a lot.

I think that the homebrand pasta sauce is a great base for all sorts of pasta and a great short cut on a work night.

Two thumbs up for homebrand pasta sauce, and for moose-shaped pasta. Awesome.

Moose pasta! Where do you find this crazy and fun shaped pasta?

I stopped eating pasta when I went gfree but every now and then I make a big bowl of it :)

Moose pasta is from Ikea. I think it's technically Elk Pasta, but moose is more fun to say...

Kris said...

I love your moose pasta! I can't think of a better merging of fun, child-friendly food (animal shaped pasta) and an adult taste palette (olives!).

Hi Amy, thanks for stopping by my blog, Vegan with Avengance arrived today and I'm sooo excited! Still trying to work out what the hell to do with tofu to get it tasting good - it's a fun little adventure this "vegan thing" hehe!

Love the moose-shaped pasta! That's just SO cool!

There's good instructions in VWAV for tofu prep Anna - plus you have to try the tofu (tempeh) bacon!!!
