For kids who don’t mind a bit of green on their plate, here’s a simple, tasty veggie sauce on pasta.
4 to 6 moderate servings
- 8 ounces pasta, your choice of shape
(spaghetti, spirals, wagon wheels, small shells, etc.)
- 1 tablespoon nonhydrogenated margarine
- 1 cup frozen green peas, thawed
- 1 cup finely chopped broccoli florets, steamed
- 1/2 cup crumbled soft tofu
- 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
- 1/4 cup rice milk
- Salt to taste
Bring plenty of water to a boil in a large saucepan. Cook the pasta until just done, then drain.
In the meantime, combine the frozen peas and broccoli florets in a saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a simmer, then remove from the heat and drain well.
Combine the peas and broccoli with the remaining sauce ingredients in a food processor or blender and process until smoothly pureed. Pour over the cooked spaghetti or pasta and toss to combine. Season with salt and serve at once.
