Vegan Comfort Food: Herb Biscuits & Pasta Fagioli

In Washington State it often seems that if you get a streak of pretty spring weather, you will pay for it later with 4X of rainy, cold weather. Being April doesn’t mean shorts season, but rather hearty meals to chase the cold off.

Herb Biscuits

  • 2 cups white whole wheat flour

  • ¾ cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/3 cup olive oil

Pasta Fagioli

Ingredients:

  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large sweet onion, peeled and chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced or 2 tsp granulated garlic
  • 2 14.5 ounce cans petite diced tomatoes
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 2 15 to 19 ounce cans white beans (small, Great Northern or white kidney)
  • 2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 13.25 ounce package multi-grain elbow macaroni or similar small pasta shape

Directions:

Heat a tall saucepan/small stockpot over medium, add oil and onion, sauté until tender, about 7 to 10 minutes. If using fresh garlic, add and sauté for a minute.

Stir in tomatoes, basil, beans and vinegar (and granulated garlic, if using). Cover and simmer over medium-low while pasta cooks.

Meanwhile, bring a large pot of salted water to boil, add macaroni, cook as indicated, drain.

Taste sauce for seasoning, add salt and pepper as desired. Toss with pasta and serve.

  1. Yum we love biscuits! And that pasta sounds delish too. Definitely comfort foods. 🙂

  2. Both of these look sooooo good. It must be near dinnertime. And I hope you get some sun soon! xo

  3. You and all your biscuit posts lately….you’re killing me! Haha! Amazing dish….I can almost taste it!

  4. I love pasta with white beans! Those herb biscuit are calling my name too!

  5. That pasta looks really good – simple, filling and healthy. I have begun adding white beans to several of my pasta dinners. I hear you on the Washington weather – we had several days of gorgeous 65deg sunshine and then we got hit with 30 and snow over here on the east side.

  6. Oh yeah, comfort food for sure! Gimme carbs!

What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts!
