Creamy Zucchini Farfalle care of Vegan Dad (VeganMoFo)

Vegan Dad is probably the blog I frequent the most for online recipe ideas.  For me, Vegan Dad and Susan from Fat Free Vegan are like the wonderful vegan mama and papa of the blogosphere.  Their recipes have never let me down. 

I bookmarked Vegan Dad’s recipe for Creamy Zucchini Farfalle for my next batch of zucchini.  It wasn’t long before my CSA delivered and I was able to have a go at another Vegan Dad recipe.  

Minor Changes I made to Vegan Dad’s recipe:
I added one large clove of garlic to the zucchini, tofu mixture before blending.  Several people left comments on his post saying that this added more flavor.  I think next time I’ll up this to two cloves.  Meat eaters may say that everything is better with bacon, but I think everything is better with garlic.  I also added a fresh tomato to my helping.  I’m going to have major tomato withdrawals after being so spoiled by CSA and homegrown (thanks Mom!) tomatoes all summer.

This sauce is actually quite healthy since it gets its creaminess from tofu and has no added oil.  Boyfriend enjoyed this dish too, even though he claims he doesn’t care for zucchini.  Thanks for yet another winner, Vegan Dad!

  1. Those are two of the blogs I turn to most for online recipes too, them & the ppk. That zucchini pasta looks amazing, I'll have to try it soon.
