Vegan MoFo day#16/Pasta Della California-Veganomican
We've been getting some of the best avocados from the Farmers Market, I mean just perfect! They are also still so inexpensive right now that we keep a good amount in the house for salads and sandwiches.
With the weather being a bit warmer and having arugula and broccoli in the refrigerator I knew what I was going to make for dinner. Pasta Della California from Veganomicon is one of our favorites. The first time I made this I was skeptical about having warm avocados with pasta but the results were amazing! Dave called me up yesterday and asked what the dinner menu was and when I told him, he was very very happy. If you haven't tried this yet you must, I promise you'll love it. My mouth is watering again just wishing I had some leftovers to eat.
Aren't these pomegranates beautiful! My mother-in-law gave us about 6 when we went down to
there this past Saturday night to watch Pierce College play football. My father-in-law is a football coach for them. So anyways, she says it's too much work to take the seeds out. This is the deal, it's easier to take the time and just seed them all at once and to put in a bowl and store in refrigerator. They don't last long in our place and will probably be gone tomorrow. Fill a big bowl of water, place in the sink and cut in half. Then you just break and seed them in the water so there is no juice spurting out everywhere. The result is tasty and great for you pomegranate seeds. No added sugar and no concentrate, just pure crunchy with a burst of juice right in your mouth.
