This recipe comes to us from Cherise, who wrote the cookbook ‘The Part-Time Vegan.’ This cookbook has some seriously delicious recipes that are so simple you won’t even believe it (but eventually you will and you’ll love them!).
The Part-Time Vegan is for people who are curious about veganism but are turned off by weird ingredients they haven’t heard of or don’t know how to use. This cookbook makes it easy for you.
We tried making her Creamy Sun-dried Tomato Pasta, which has a healthy cream sauce made with Earth Balance® soymilk and silken tofu. Make sure you try this one – and add some meatless ground ‘beef’ and sautéed vegetables to make it a whole, satisfying dinner!
