Some of the Best Vegetarian Healthy Food Recipes

Vegan Spaghetti Alla Puttanesca

                This spaghetti Alla puttanesca recipe is a pure vegetarian healthy food recipe. In my list, it comes at the top because it’s a lighter pasta dish that calls for mostly basic pantry ingredients.

This dish relies on some very salty ingredients for flavor, so if you don’t like olives and capers, this one is probably not for you.

Ingredients:

  • 1 large (28 ounces) can of tomato sauce or diced tomatoes
  • ⅓ cup chopped Kalamata olives
  • ⅓ cup of capers
  • 1 tablespoon of Kalamata olive brine
  • 1 tablespoon of caper brine
  • 3 pieces of garlic, pressed or minced
  • ¼ teaspoon of red pepper flakes
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • ½ cup chopped and finely divided fresh parsley leaves.
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Salt, if necessary

Vegan BLT Sandwich

                     In a warm weather, if you are looking for light and refreshing meals, then this sandwich is one of them. Ripe tomatoes, fresh lettuce, avocado instead of mayonnaise, and homemade coconut bacon combine in this vegan BLT recipe.

  • 1 medium ripe avocado
  • Salt, as needed
  • ¼ cup of coconut bacon
