VeganMoFo Day 4: Broccoli Chick'n Pasta

Today for MoFo, I tried this recipe from the Fat Free Vegan Kitchen. I wanted something quick and easy and I have some chicken-less strips from Trader Joe's to use up, so this recipe was just what I needed. I altered it a bit to make it a smaller serving (And I didn't want a ton of leftovers like with the stir fry a couple of days ago). Here are my amounts:

Broccoli Chick'n Pasta

3/4 cup whole wheat pasta (measured when dry)
1/2 a small bunch of broccoli
2.5 ounces of chicken strips
1/2 tsp olive oil
1 clove garlic
1/2 tsp basil
pinch of red pepper flakes
salt and pepper to taste

The recipe instructions are the same, but instead of a whole cup of cooking liquid, I used about 1/4 cup.


  1. I never buy those chickenless strips but I am a sucker for them when someone uses them in something for a potluck.
