All about our quick nutritious meals
Healthy, whole plant-based food recipes are sometimes seen as difficult to cook, and lacking in nutrients. But that simply isn’t true. We have lots of pantry raid recipes that are quick, plant-based, and nutritious. The best part about recipes like this roast tomatoes recipe is that you can make them in one pot! That means when you’re done enjoying this creamy goodness, you don’t have a stack load of dishes to worry about. If you are like me, I eat it right out of the pot.
This sounds too good to be true, doesn’t it? Well, it’s not. To make these quick creamy pasta recipes, ingredients are not just thrown in. They are considered for their nutritional value.
Sun-dried tomatoes offer a natural sweetness
A roast tomatoes recipe like this one is bound to be rich and flavorful. Food enthusiasts agree that roast tomatoes are more concentrated and intense, giving a bit of a meaty texture and slight sweetness. This is because the water has been removed and how you cook it brings out its delectable nectar without adding sugar. Factors like this make them beneficial to whole plant-based food recipes. According to studies, one of the important minerals in roasted tomatoes is Vitamin B6. Research shows that it is essential for brain development, as well as in keeping the nervous and immune systems healthy.
Pasta is another beloved carb
The topic of the health benefits of pasta is a controversial one. Some say it causes weight gain because of its carbs content. But, about two-thirds of Italians eat pasta every day and are healthy weight-wise. Carbohydrates aren’t all bad. In fact, we looked into it here and found that they are filling, and energy boosting.
