Plant Shift

love ♥ living ♥ vegan

Following a plant-based or vegan lifestyle, is about food, drink, clothes, shoes, body treatments, hair products and more. 

It's a conscious decision to think, walk and possibly, talk a better lifestyle. 

I support individuals who are thinking about making the shift, as well as, those who have already begun their plant-based journey.

Ingredients for spaghetti with vegan mince and vegetables

  • 2 handfuls of spaghetti
  • 1/2 a small bunch of broccoli
  • 3/4 of a small courgette
  • Olive oil
  • 5 cherry tomatoes
  • Tomato Purée
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • A handful of vegan mince

How to make spaghetti with vegan mince and vegetables

  1. Put some spaghetti on the boil 
    1. Put some boiling water in a pan and hold the spaghetti
    2. Within about 20 seconds, it will begin to soften, so you can bend the spaghetti around the pan, which means you don't have to break it into pieces
    3. Give it a stir now and again
    4. Chop the broccoli and the courgette 
    5. Put some olive oil in a pan
    6. Add the broccoli and courgette when the oil is hot
    7. After 5 minutes add some whole cherry tomatoes
    8. Add a little tomato purée
    9. Add salt and pepper to taste
    10. Add the mince and stir
    11. Put the lid on the pan and let it cook
    12. When the spaghetti is ready, drain it, add some vegan margarine and mix it up

Serving suggestion

When I served it,  I made a circular shape with the spaghetti leaving a hole in the middle for the vegetables.
