I am so excited to be partnering with Modern Table and share with you one of my favorite vegan and gluten-free pasta recipes!
I absolutely love using Modern Table Elbows for a few reasons. First of all, the pasta is delicious! That is always important, especially when cooking with a gluten-free pasta.
I love that all their pastas are lentil-based and contain complete proteins – meaning they have the 9 essential amino acids our bodies need for strong energy, good digestion, and muscle health. How amazing is that?!
Modern Table Pastas are great for those who are enjoy a healthier lifestyle, and a perfect way to get more nutrition from your meals — a blend of nutrition, with the texture of tradition.
Modern Table Pastas just have three plant-based ingredients, and the plain pastas are vegan, non-GMO, and gluten-free! For this Vegan Cauliflower Pasta, I really love using the Modern Table Elbow Pasta. I like the elbow shaped pasta with the chopped cauliflower.
Vegan Cauliflower Pasta
I make pasta at least once a week and this Vegan Cauliflower Pasta is one of my favorites. The pasta sauce is basically just cauliflower.
Instead of discarding the cauliflower leaves and core, I like to chop them up into small pieces and add them to the sauce. Using the leaves and core of the cauliflower is a great way to bulk up the cauliflower ragu. It also helps cuts down with food waste. It’s a win-win!
I love adding a pinch of red pepper flakes to the pasta. It adds a tiny bit of heat. If you love things extra spicy, add a large pinch!
For serving the pasta, I like to top the pasta with an extra pinch of red pepper flakes and toasted breadcrumbs. I like to take a few pieces of gluten-free bread and pulse the bread into breadcrumbs. The breadcrumbs add a nice texture to the pasta.
This Vegan Cauliflower Pasta is packed full of protein and nutrition. The cauliflower makes a delicious vegetable filled pasta.
