How To PrepareEasy Vegan Rotini Pasta Recipe

To prepare this Easy Vegan Rotini Pasta Recipe, I cooked brown rice rotini according to the package directions, drained it, tossed with olive oil and set it aside. In the meantime, I cook onions, garlic with Italian seasonings. Then I added beefless grounds, I used GARDEINbrand which is vegan and gluten-free.

You can substitute with cooked lentils or tofu crumbles or your favorite protein here, I then stirred in pasta sauce followed by cooked pasta and vegan cheese. For the cheese, I used DAIYA SHREDS, but you can also substitute with my CHEESE SAUCE recipe in my Vegan MacNCheese recipe. This is so easy to prepare and it will be a huge hit with your family!

    I notice that this does not say “gluten free.” Would the beefless grounds have gluten in them? What would work as a replacement?

      The beefless grounds are gluten free. It says it in the ingredients section

        If, they aren’t, been such a long time since I used them, the only questionable ingredient if I’m correct is probably barley, I can’t remember. You can always use Beyond Ground, they are definitely gluten-free.
