Celebrate National Noodle Day With These Amazing Vegan Dishes


Pasta is one of the ultimate comfort foods. Sit down with a big bowl of noodles, and you’ll find that bowl will be gone in no time. It’s one of those foods that can so easily be made without meat and dairy, while still pleasing people with different dietary choices and lifestyles. Today is National Noodle Day, so boil some water, throw some salt in there, toss in the pasta and let’s get cooking. Check out these ways to make awesome noodle dishes with some of our most popular pasta recipes.

1. Succulent Tortellini With a Nut Cream and Wild Mushroom Sauce

Warm and succulent, this tortellini dish has all the creamy comfort of the dairy-packed original. Isn’t it awesome how creative plant-based food can be?

You have to try this pasta sauce if you’re a meat lover. Giving up the beef doesn’t mean saying farewell to bolognese sauce; try using lentils and mushrooms instead for that hearty texture.
