A Week of Plant-Based Meals - Thursday

Kale and Olive Pasta Salad
Chock-full of veggies, and perfect for the first day of spring! The original recipe is called Pasta With Greens, Chickpeas, and Olives, and it comes from Nava Atlas' wonderful VegKitchen website. We ate it hot, but it would be equally delicious served cold. 

I made the following changes:

  • used brown rice elbow noodles
  • omitted the olive oil  and sauteed the veggies in a little water
  • added 12 oz sliced mushrooms
  • added the juice of half a lemon to the finished salad

And now for Thursday's meals:

Cream of Buckwheat
Apple, blueberries, soy milk
