8:00 AM

I love a good One Pot pasta dish.

Let's be real. I love anything with gluten-free pasta

I love Lasagna but sometimes waiting for the typically oven cooked lasagna takes too long and is a way to hot to make in the summer.
That's what inspired this recipe. A craving for a cold night dish on a hot summers weeknight.

Vegan Beef and Broccoli

Summer has kicked into full gear friends so I'm not gonna lie, it's put a damper on the cooking front.
But have no fear! I found an old recipe, tested it a few times and I'm happy to share it with you!

Vegan Gluten Free Beef and Broccoli
Sometimes you have to get creative with what the meatless product creators have given you. For instance, Beef and Broccoli typically has thicker cuts of meat but finding a vegan alternative that resembles the thicker cuts is hard.

However, I've found that Beyond Beef Crumbles do a good enough job to resemble the classic Beef and Broccoli recipe with a Gluten Free and Vegan twiest! .
