During these last few weeks, health has been our major concern. Well, it’s been my major concern ever since I went plant-based — not just for the past few weeks. Food should always be your number one defense when it comes to your health. In today’s climate we need healthy food more than ever. You simply cannot be healthy if you don’t eat the right foods or get the nutrition you need.
This is a very simple 5 ingredient meal I made in about 15 minutes. Even people who don’t like to cook can make this. It is so easy and delicious PLUS it will give your body the nutrients it needs to stay healthy. Just look at the color! Eating the rainbow leads to better health. Stay safe out there!
10 oz. fresh (preferably organic) spinach, chopped
About 2-3 cups whole grain penne pasta
2-3 tbsp. veggie broth
6-8 cloves garlic — I used the kind already in a jar and I just spooned in as much as I wanted
1 can diced tomatoes OR 2 medium tomatoes chopped and seeded
1 can chick peas
Vegan cheese (optional)
Saute the garlic in the veggie broth — about 1-2 minutes
Add the tomatoes and saute until bubbly
Add the chopped spinach. Put the lid on so that the spinach can steam and wilt. Stir frequently.
Add the cooked pasta. Toss to coat
Top with “cheese” and serve with bread if desired.
