Spaghetti with Brussels Sprouts & Tomatoes

Spaghetti with Brussels Sprouts and TomatoesLately, we’ve been venturing more and more into vegan territory. Being vegetarian is super easy, and I don’t miss meat or seafood anymore. Last year, I would occasionally have seafood for special occasions (scallops!), but now I’ve been pretty hardcore vegetarian. The adjustment to eating more vegan meals has been pretty easy. We’ve cut back on eggs and cheese, reserving them for special occasions or dining out. It has also taught me to be more appreciative of those ingredients on the rare occasion I have them.

I recently made this colorful pasta dish for dinner, and it’s the perfect example of how easy and delicious it is to go vegan. Spaghetti with roasted brussels sprouts and sun dried tomatoes. Toss it all in a little olive oil, then top with nutritional yeast, black pepper, and capers. The red and green makes this a wonderful holiday dish, and I sure do love roasted brussels sprouts. Not bad for a quick weeknight dinner!

    This looks yummy! :) I can’t wait to try nutritional yeast, hopefully soon it will come on our market.

      Thanks! I really like a little sprinkle of nutritional yeast on my veggies. :) It often comes fortified with vitamin B12 and helps us vegetarians out.

      Our grocery store doesn’t carry it, but we’ve been able to find it online at Amazon. We buy it in bulk! ;)

        We soon hoping to get our hands on that fortified yeast. I am convinced it will give a whole new twist to our raw salads :)
