As a way to start off the new year I’m doing a Daniel Fast, which is basically vegan. I have been yearning to hear from the Lord , and what better way than prayer and fasting? Anywho, my overall intention of this 21- day fast is to gain a better sense of my purpose and clearly know when the Lord is speaking to my situation. Typing it out sounds crazy but…I feel like we all get to that point where we question if God even hears or cares about what’s going on in our lives. So now, that we know how le stint of veganism has come about… Let’s get straight to what’s really Poppin. And if you haven’t been tuned into my Instagram (@_cmharry) lately you should check it out!
So, just about every Saturday I try to bring you all some cooking content because 1) I love food and 2) I used to want to be a chef ,*whispers* it might be my new side hustle if you’re hiring . These past two Saturdays have been a bit of a struggle, but in lieu of posting on the gram this weekend I’m doing a brief blog post. Now for the main attraction! My leftover vegan pasta!!!It was “creamy” and delicious.This was super simple with inspiration of from a video I saw from Pinterest, which one exactly? I don’t know.
What I used:
- Leftover Whole wheat penne rigate pasta
- Leftover Garlic hummus
- A handful of half spring & half spinach salad mix
- Mini sweet peppers
- About a quarter of a small red onion
- Extra Virgin Olive oil (EVOO)
- Seasonings; salt, pepper, Italian seasoning, garlic an herb seasoning.
Boom! Drop a little EVOO off in a nice little saucepan over about medium heat. When oil is hot sauté mini sweet peppers and red onions until soft. Add handful of salad mix, gently stir, this will eventually wilt down from the heat. No worries about actually cooking it down. Drop in your leftover pasta and hummus. OH snap it’s thicky thick, obviously! I added about a cup of water, which was too much for the little bit of pasta and hummus I had. To fix that little error I increased the heat and let it simmer a little bit to get rid of the excess water so the sauce could be more “creamy”. And that’s it… that’s all!
My mom who is not presently fasting actually thought it was Alfredo sauce… how sway? I don’t know. Overall, it was a nice little Saturday night meal.
As always this has been fun! Be sure to check out my IG, @ _cmharry, and let me know what you’d like to see next! Until next time ….
