I am somewhat obsessed with spinach. To me, spinach just makes (almost) everything better! Spinach curries, spinach casseroles, spinach pasta dishes! It’s no surprise that this spinach pasta appealed to me!
I stumbled across this recipe for homemade spinach pasta and vegetable ragout in a vegan cookbook (Dr Oetker – 100% Pflanzlich: Vegane Rezepte). I had bought it in an attempt to reduce the amount of animal products we consume. I like having a couple of vegetarian days a week and would like to incorporate a few vegan meals too. Aside from the obvious benefits I feel it encourages me to try new things on a regular basis. I tend to structure meals around the protein (if there’s chicken in the fridge, it will probably be chicken for dinner). Veggies often just play a supporting part. However, vegan recipes allow you to turn the supporting actor into the star!
