We are officially in holiday entertaining mode so Abbey has partnered with her friends at Yves who have sponsored this video to help you whip up a plant-based spread everyone is going to love.
If you’re stumped on what to serve your plant-based guests this holiday, Abbey has got a dish that tends to go over well with pretty much everyone around this time – CARBS.
Abbey is no vegan, but definitely believes there is a lot of value in adding more plant-based meals to our usually routine. And carbs are the holiday KING. Abbey will pretty much ALWAYS forgo the turkey, roast beef, ham, or other holiday beast for a big bowl of creamy pasta soaked up with a crusty bread.
So today Abbey wanted to share her crowd pleasing Vegan Creamy Mushroom and Caramelized Onion Pasta made extra “meaty” thanks to Yves Original Veggie Ground Round.
This meat swap tastes and feels just like meat so it’s 100% carnivore approved, but is even easier prepare, making it a really convenient source of protein for this hectic holiday season. And with the cream free cream sauce, sweet caramelized onions and hearty mushrooms, even the hardcore meat lovers at the buffet won’t be able to refuse.
Let’s do this.
To make my sauce, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil over medium low heat in a large skillet and add sliced onions. Cook them until they reach a deep amber colour, about 45-60 minutes.
Next add in the mushrooms and cook until lightly browned, about 7 minutes. Next add in the Yves Original Veggie Ground Round, garlic and thyme and sauté until the garlic is fragrant and the veggie ground round is crumbled.
Next, in a bowl, mix together the almond milk and flour and then add to the pan over medium heat. Allow the sauce to cook until it thickens, about 4 minutes, then pour in the almond creamer and season the sauce with salt and pepper to taste.
Next cook pasta according to box directions.
To make the crumb topping, heat two teaspoons of oil over medium heat along with the panko and garlic. Cook just until the panko browns.
To assemble the pasta, add the cooked pasta to the mushroom sauce mixture and toss everything to coat.
To serve, top the pasta with the garlic breadcrumbs, parsley, vegan parmesan and thyme leaves. Enjoy!
So whether you’ve got vegans at the holiday table, or you’re just trying to get a little more balance in your holiday menu, Abbey is sure this pasta dish will become a family fave.
