Also, I did still pass on the vegan version to our friend, which uses cauliflower and cashews instead of butter and cream to make the sauce. He, unfortunately, has some concerning (hereditary) blood pressure levels that cannot be easily controlled by medication. This drastic change in diet has not been an easy transition for his family. So, if you have any other tasty vegan recipes I can share with them, I’d love it if you could please leave a link in the comments. Thanks!
My New Favorite Noodles
Not at all sponsored, but I’m absolutely loving this new (to me) egg pasta and had to share. The texture might be just as good as homemade pasta (okay well, almost), which says A LOT! I may never buy the regular store-brand box again after trying this one from Whole Foods recently. Also, I just noticed you could order it from Amazon. Let’s keep these people in business—it’s good stuff!

I also like the vegan recipes on Chocolate Covered Katie. There are lots of dessert ones but also lots of good meal ones as well. https://chocolatecoveredkatie.com/category/healthy-meal-ideas/
This looks delicious!!! My favorite websites (both have recipe apps as well) for vegan recipes are Deliciously Ella and Forks Over Knives. We aren’t vegan, either, but these sites come in handy during church fasting periods when meat and dairy are not permitted.
I love Forks Over Knives, and I’ll have to check out the other one. Thanks for the suggestions! – Nicole
I was vegan for a time and really found the Forks Over Knives meal planner to be a sure fire way to stay on track. Thought it might interest your friend.
Awesome! Thank you. – Nicole
Looks yummy! I’ll need to check out whole foods. I followed your link to amazon & it is now unavailable so looked up other Grand’mere pasta & it was $23 a bag!
We just saw that :( Hopefully it’ll be available again. – Nicole
I found it for $3.50 at Fresh Market.
This looks yummy! We’ll be sure to give it a try, and we’re super excited about that pasta, too!
Here’s our favorite vegan recipe for your friend. I usually add 2-3 medium carrots.
Thanks so much! – Nicole
This looks great but I’ll be searching for a nut-free vegan version because of family allergies to dairy, eggs & nuts. Perhaps point your newly-vegan friend to Clean Food Dirty Girl? The language is unapologetically salty, but the community is incredibly supportive & the whole-food-no-oil-plant-based recipes are BONKERS DELICIOUS. They also have subscription weekly meal plans that might be helpful for transitioning to a different way of eating, as they provide shopping lists & batch-cooking instructions.. (not affiliated – just a fan!)
That’s awesome! Thanks for the recommendation. – Nicole
Have your friend check out http://www.fatfreevegan.com
Great! Thank you. – Nicole
Is there a way to print the recipe WITHOUT alllll the ads !?
Simply press the red Print button that is in the recipe and it will show up without any ads. – Nicole
The Oh She Glows Cookbook is amazing for vegan recipes! Neither my sister nor I are vegan, but we both have a number of favorite go-to recipes from this cookbook.
Great! Thanks so much. – Nicole
