A hearty cremini mushroom marinara sauce with a generous helping of fresh basil, garlic, onion, and bell peppers, served with your favorite pasta.
I cannot emphasize enough how much I love, love, LOVE herbs and spices. I used roughly 4 oz of basil for this recipe, which for some people may be too much, and for some, too little! If you have fresh oregano readily available, feel free to use that as opposed to dried. As always, it depends on your personal taste preferences, so alter the recipe accordingly.
The cremini mushrooms, which are a fantastic meat substitute, give the sauce its hearty texture and umami flavor.

A deliciously creamy vegan mushroom and baby broccoli orzo with basil, peas, and homemade garlic herb cashew cheese, coconut milk, jazzed up with hints of lemon and top notes of mint, topped with freshly chopped scallions.
This creamy orzo was so mouthwatering and satisfying friends! The lemon and mint combination definitely kicks up the flavor profile up a notch. The garlic, basil, and herbes de provence gave the cashew cheese sauce the perfect savoriness. I’m not usually a fan of black peppercorn, but it accented the flavors of this orzo incredibly well.
For the non-vegans out there who are looking for a healthier dairy-free alternative, this dish is ideal to try. I was told that you can’t even tell this dish is vegan! As for my vegan friends, I’m sure I don’t have to tell you about the miracle that is cashew cheese.
So you’re curious about going vegetarian or even vegan? Whether this is due to personal health reasons, wanting to do your part in preserving our environment, or animal rights, this documentary list has got something for everyone!
The purpose of this list is not to convert anyone to vegetarianism or veganism nor is it to force any belief systems down anyone’s throat.

The major draw of consumer driven convenience products often is the fact that we do not have to contribute any of our precious time or energy into something that is perceived as mundane and tedious. For the day to day mentality, this works fine! It saves us time throughout the day that we have prioritized for other things.
What we cannot fail to acknowledge however is the long-term detrimental effects of convenience food culture nations on health, social connection, and gratitude towards our planet for providing for us so abundantly. Are these consequences truly worth the time spent preparing our own meals?
