Vegan Tomato-Lentil Pasta
Pictured is Tomato-Lentil Pasta (p.107, Vive le Vegan!), along with a simple salad of baby spinach, romaine lettuce, cucumber, and pine nuts tossed with an Annie's Naturals salad dressing. Yellow wax beans tossed with olive oil and sea salt and lightly broiled were on the side, as well as some whole-grain bread.
This pasta sauce is easy, and very flavorful with garlic, herbs, and pungent capers. I used kamut pasta to toss in the sauce, and since our 1-year old is not yet eating wheat, I gave her a portion to try (removing the capers). She absolutely loved it! I was surprised, because it is quite savory, but sometimes little ones enjoy more flavor than we realize!
