Recipe by Kozmic Blues
Made up from stuff in the kitchen! This recipe is vegan, but you can use non-vegan ingredients if you like (butter, milk, parmesan etc.) I had just a bit of local organic soy milk in the fridge, and added into the sauce at the last minute. Worked well. For the vegan parmesan, I use Almesan - Vegan Parmesan with 1 tbsp of nutritional yeast added in
- 1 lb pasta
- 4 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 tablespoons vegan margarine
- 1⁄4 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 1⁄2 cup vegetable broth
- 12 ounces artichoke hearts, quartered
- 1⁄4 cup capers, rinsed and drained
- 1 large lemon, juice and zest
- 1⁄3 cup soymilk, unsweetened
- 2 teaspoons oregano
- 2 teaspoons italian seasoning
- 1⁄4 cup vegan parmesan cheese (I use Almesan - Vegan Parmesan)
- salt and pepper, to taste
- crushed red pepper flakes, to taste
- extra vegan parmesan cheese, for serving
