Vegan MoFo #30 Tomato pasta with olives, leeks and vegan Parmesan

Keeping it simple for my last vegan MoFo 2014 post. I can't believe it'll be over tomorrow :( 
As easy as this dish is, the leek and garlic give it tonnes of flavour. The easy Parmesan takes it to super tasty. It's pretty much a pasta version of the pizza pie I made but whatevs, it's my 30th MoFo post!

However much pasta you need (the sauce makes enough for 3-4 servings)
1 leek, trimmed and finely diced
500 g passata
3 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
A handful of black olives, halved
Oil for frying
Salt & pepper to taste

For the Parmesan
1 tbsp nutritional yeast
1 tbsp ground almonds
1/4 tsp garlic powder
Pinch of salt
1 heaped tsp dried chives 

Par boil the pasta then set aside
In a separate pan, saut√© the finely diced leek for 10-15 minutes in a generous amount of olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper until the green bits have gone soft 
Add the other ingredients including the par-boiled pasta (drained) and simmer for 10 minutes
Mix the Parma ingredients, sprinkle over the top then serve

So, that's me all done for MoFo 2014. I've enjoyed it so much, I think I'm going to keep blogging. Not every day though! 
Hopefully some of you will still keep in touch before next MoFo, I know I'll be keeping an eye on all the amazing vegan blogs I've discovered through MoFo.
Big shout outs to all the lovely people who have commented on my blog, it's really helped my confidence and mental health. 

Take care all x


  1. Congrats on completing your first Vegan MoFo; glad to hear you'll keep blogging! :)

  2. Ooh, did you post every single day? That's awesome and I do hope you continue to blog after MoFo. :) I'm also a little sad that it's over already -- I always start having trouble posting regularly halfway through and then the final days go by so quickly! I think I'll spend the next month catching up on all the blogs I haven't gotten to yet. :)
    Your pasta dish looks delicious, especially with the almond parmesan.

  3. Congratulations Rosie! Amazing effort! I'm glad you're going to keep blogging, I've really enjoyed keeping up with your posts this month :)
