Can't have cow's milk? Try these recipes! In 2007 I gave up dairy for health reasons and began this group. Then, in late 2009, I went vegan---also for health reasons. So even though the group is called The Dairy Free Diva, it's really become the Animal Product Free recipe exchange. Obviously, you can substitute meat into any of the dishes, but I encourage you to give the meat alternatives a try and see for yourself that vegan food is full of flavor and taste and not all the calories and fat! Enjoy the posts and recipes and feel free to add your own delicious dairy-free and meat free concoctions!

Pasta with Marinated Mushrooms and Cashew Cheese

Posted By girlA on Sep 12, 2010 at 5:50PM

I have been making this dish for years, usually using vegan Parmesan or mozzarella, but since I have a huge hunk of cashew cheese, I decided to use that (which by the way, shreds beautifully). This dish also makes great leftovers for the next day’s lunch. The amounts of each ingredient isn’t specific, but dependent upon how much you want to make.

Pasta with Marinated Mushrooms and Cashew Cheese


Ingredients

Pasta

mushrooms, sliced

tomatoes, chopped

red wine

minced garlic

olive oil

cashew cheese, shredded

Earth Balance margarine

Salt, to taste

Directions

Marinate the mushrooms in some red wine and let sit 15-20 minutes.

Cook pasta according to package directions. Meanwhile heat olive oil and garlic in a small saute pan, then add mushrooms. Saute a few minutes—I don’t like to cook them until they’re shriveled. You may have to drain some leftover marinade.

Drain pasta and add 1-2 tablespoons of Earth Balance to pasta pot and coat the drained pasta. Add the mushrooms and tomatoes and combine well. Season with salt. Serve with cashew cheese and enjoy!
