0 Vegan pasta recipe

Chef has cooked a real tasty vegan rigatoni pasta recipe.

Smoked tofu is fantastic as a meat replacement in vegan recipes so it went perfect in this vegan pasta recipe.

Chef uses a combination of sweet peppers, sweetcorn and button mushrooms to give this delicious pasta a sweet bite to it.

There is no sauce with this pasta so it is perfect for anyone who loves pasta but prefers less tomato, the vegetables are cooked with a little water just to give the vegetables some moisture to lightly coat the rigatoni pasta.

Even garlic is not needed in this recipe as the key to the taste is just making sure that you taste and season the vegetables with enough salt.

Chef adds a green chilli to this vegan pasta recipe to give a subtle spicy kick, you can however use no chilli at all or you can add more chilli if you love spicy pasta.

This really is an easy vegan recipe to cook, just follow the step by step pictures.
