Vegan, Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Soy Free and Egg Free

by: Jessica Caracciolovegan-brocolli.jpg


  • Gluten Free Pasta (like: Ancient Quinoa Harvest Gluten Free Quinoa Pasta)
  • 24oz bag frozen broccoli crowns
  • 12oz container sliced mushrooms
  • 3 tablespoons soy free butter (like: Earth Balance Soy Free Butter)
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 1 cup vegetable broth
  • 3/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 3/4 tsp onion powder
  • 2-3 tsp salt to taste
  • 2-3 tsp ground black pepper to taste
  • Soy Free non-stick spray (Like: Pam for Grilling)


  • Steam or boil broccoli crowns until desired doneness- usually takes on average 15 minutes. After it is done, set aside until the sauce below has reduced.
  • Dice mushrooms into about ½ inch cubes.
  • Put a medium size sauce pan on for pasta. Cook pasta accordingly- straining after done.

While broccoli and pasta are cooking above:

  • Take out a metal fry pan and spray with non-stick spray. Place diced mushrooms into fry pan. Add 1 tbsp olive oil and 1 tbsp soy free butter to the pan. Stir until evenly coated- keeping the heat on low. Place a lid over the pan to allow mushrooms to steam until done about 5-7 minutes.
  • After mushrooms are done, strain the excess water from the fry pan by straining the mushrooms with a strainer. Pour mushrooms back into the fry pan as is. Turn the heat from low heat to high heat.
  • Add another tablespoon of butter to the pan and season with salt and pepper (about 1/2 -1 teaspoon each- salt and pepper to taste). Sautee, until all mushrooms are thoroughly browned.
  • When the mushrooms are all, well browned- take them off the heat for 1 minute and allow the pan to cool a little. Add: white wine, vegetable broth, 1 tablespoon butter, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper (about ½-1 teaspoon each salt and pepper to taste). Turn the heat back on medium high. Stir and let simmer/lightly boil until sauce reduces by about half.
  • Add the broccoli crowns to the fry pan mixture. Season with salt, pepper, 1 tablespoon olive oil, and a pinch each of garlic and onion powder. Mix the broccoli in with the sauce and mushrooms. Stirring every couple minutes until evenly cooked through and coated.
  • Place pasta on a dish, pour sauce with mushrooms and broccoli in it- over the pasta and serve immediately.
