Ciao ciao!

So, I don’t really know how I juggled 2 jobs (exclude blogging) and being a full-time student (terribly, I imagine). Now that my internship has come to an end, I can finally pull up my hair, tie up my apron, write out a much needed recipe for the world.

This is a vegan dish which I highly recommend to have when you watch the annual victoria secret show in a week  ;)

Yes, I consider myself a part-time vegan, that means I eat meat the other part of the time. Who doesn’t love burgers and steaks?

Alright, we’re off topic.

You’ll need:

  • pasta of your choice
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • your favorite white wine
  • vegan cheese (or make your own which requires cashew and nut milk, I used almond milk)
  • nut milk
  • quinoa flour
  • brussel sprouts

Spices:

  • salt & pepper
  • coconut oil
  • paprika
  • nutritional yeast

Evenly cover your brussel sprouts with salt, pepper, paprika and a generous amount of coconut oil. Pop them into the oven at 400F for 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, pour yourself a glass of wine, set the bottle aside for cooking purpose.

Heat up oil and add in garlic, season it with salt & pepper.

Once the garlic turn slightly golden, pour in white wine.

This part is freestyle. If you pour too much, let it simmer longer, if you pour too little then add more.

Let it simmer. Meanwhile cook your pasta in another pot.

Once the mixture is bubbling, add in your vegan cheese (or cashew + nut milk mixture) and milk, stir evenly.

Turn your stove to low heat, add half cup of quinoa flour and 4 table spoons of nutritional yeast to thickening the sauce.  (*Nutritional yeast has a cheesy taste in it.)

Keep stiring until smooth while sipping your wine.

Last step, when pasta and brussel sprouts are cooked, simply mix them into the sauce in a large bowl and it’s ready to be served!

I learned this recipes from blogs and youtube videos. It’s kind of a hybrid product and I promise it’s equally delicious and healthy ;)
