Type: vegan, gluten free   Preparation time: 10 minutes   Cooking time: 45 minutes   Paying time: 10 minutes   Total Time: 1 hour and 5 minutes (appr.)

 

Ingredients for 4 servings:

• 1 pack of gluten-free spaghetti or 2 spaghetti tofu packages
• 6 medium tomatoes 
• Plenty of hot water or vegetable broth (always homemade) 
• Fleur de sel Salt Odyssey®
• Pepper
• 1 bunch of parsley
• 500g brown mushrooms (small sized), cut into small cubes
• 250 g walnuts (grated into small pieces)
• Olive oil 
• 1 medium white onion finely chopped 
• 6 cloves of garlic 
• Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Cumin, Allspice, 1 tsp. in total

 

Directions:

 

Wash the tomatoes thoroughly, remove the stalks and cut them into 4 pieces.

In a small, preferably ceramic, pot (otherwise simple anti-stick pot) add 2 tablespoons of olive oil and the tomatoes, top up and place it in a strong fire. Soften them for 10 minutes to get the taste of a tomato paste.

Then add the garlic, a pinch of fleur de sel and about 300ml of broth or water, top again and simmer for 25 minutes or until the liquids are about the thickness of a finger in height.

In the meantime, in a ceramic pan, with 2 tbs of olive oil, sauté the onion, the mushrooms as you add saltpeter. After softened well, add 150 ml of water or broth, the walnuts, the spices and half the parsley. Once the liquids dry out, close the fire.

Put the boiled tomatoes in a blender to create a thick sauce.  Mix the mushrooms with the sauce and boil for 10 minutes until they bind.

Boil the pasta following the instructions, serve the sauce on top or stir in a pan, garnish with parsley and some vegan cheese.

Good appetite.
