Pasta with Spiced “Meaty” Mushrooms

IMG_0113

I used to be all about pasta with a meaty sauce, but with my focus now on plant-based ingredients, I’ve found a few “meaty” replacements to keep myself satisfied. This often involves the likes of eggplants, cauliflower, and mushrooms. This recipe for simple pasta with spiced “meaty” mushrooms hits the spot on all fronts – flavor, texture, and nutrition. Enjoy!

Like me on Facebook for more updates on recipes/giveaways/health information.

The glow is in the “meat”:

Mushrooms: are low in carbohydrates and sodium, are an excellent source of cancer-fighting selenium, reduce blood pressure and risk of stroke, are a good source of B-vitamins, contain tryptophan, which is essential to create vitamin B-3 and helps control sleep pattern and mood swings, help to prevent breast cancer and contain a high amount of antioxidant L-ergothioneine, which is important in protecting from UV and radiation as well as contributing to the liver’s detoxification abilities.

I love the way the mushrooms absorb all the flavors and each bite is so dense with spice and texture. Gotta love it!
