Pasta and More Cupcakes!

Yes I am still here and still keeping a vegan diet for almost a month now, woot! I haven’t been cooking much because I’ve been really busy at work but luckily there is a Whole Foods walking distance to my office so I have been able to feed myself tasty vegan food. I’ve also been eating at Flore a ton. Their food is delicious, fresh, and they have consistently great service! If you live in Los Angeles and haven’t been I highly recommend you give them a try. Sorry I have no pictures but I recommend their burrito and their homemade hot sauce.

I did make some cupcakes this weekend because I needed my chocolate fix! The recipe is from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over The World:

Chocolate Cupcake with Peanut Buttercream

I can’t rave enough about how good these are. I shaved some chocolate to decorate the tops because I like my cupcakes to look pretty.
I also made this pasta with grilled vegetables (asparagus, brussel sprouts, tomatoes) and fresh basil which I picked up at the Farmer’s Market on Sunday:

It was a great weeknight dinner – fast, easy, and delicious. Til next time…
