Asian Spaghetti with Mushrooms, Snow Peas, Garlic

Pin It

This is a simple meal and easy to make. Feel free to add other vegetables if you wish. Asparagus, bell pepper, and bean sprouts are fantastic, and tofu would be a great protein boost. The light flavor of this dish comes from the garlic and soy sauce, and optional cayenne pepper. It tastes great both warm and cold, so leftovers are a perfect work lunch for my husband with no need to reheat.

Vegan, gluten-free (with gluten-free pasta and soy sauce)
Adapted from Taste of Home

Ingredients
8 oz. angel hair pasta (I use whole grain)
8 oz. mushrooms, sliced
1 1/2 cups snow peas
2 medium carrots, cut into matchsticks
6 green onions, cut into 1 inch pieces
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce (or more to taste)
Optional: sesame oil, 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper, sesame seeds for topping

Directions
Cook pasta according to package directions and drain.
Meanwhile, in a large skillet over med-high heat, saute mushrooms for 2-3 minutes. (Can use sesame oil for more flavor.)
Add snow peas, carrots, green onion and cook for 5-7 minutes or until crisp-tender.
Add garlic, stir, and heat for 1 minute.
Add pasta and soy sauce. Toss well to combine and heat for a few minutes until heated through. Serve warm or chilled.

  2. You always have the best recipes -- tasty and not complicated. My mostly-meat-and-potatos husband actually requests that I make the chickpea salad. :)

    1. Thanks so much! And WOW! I try to make all my meals to please both herbivores and carnivores so I absolutely love hearing when some of the more strict meat-eaters request and enjoy some of the meals on here. Veggie power! :D Let me know how he likes it if you get the chance!
