Baby Bella Medley with Mustard Sauce

This is just a really simple veg medley with a little wine and french mustard to bring it all together. 
Conclusive proof that simple can be exceptional. 

1 pint baby bella mushrooms, sliced
1 poblano, diced
2 jalapenos, minced
1 red bell pepper, diced
1/2 medium spanish onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 can garbanzos, drained and rinsed
1 can red beans, drained and rinsed
2 tbls dijon mustard
2 1/2 tsps salt
1 tsp black pepper
2 tbls olive oil1/4 cup pinot grigio

Saute mushrooms in oil and salt. Cook the mushrooms down until they are pretty dark. Deglaze with wine. Cook off wine for 5 minutes. 

Add onions. Cook down until onions are tender and tramslucent. 

Add peppers and garlic. Keep cooking over medium low until peppers are also tender. 
Add beans, mustard and black pepper to a large heat safe bowl. 

When mushroom mixture is done cooking add it to the bowl of beans. Stir to combine.

Manwich is Vegan

Manwich brand sauce mix is vegan. The new chunky one is especially good. The original flavor it good too. Manwich is an easy way to make a vegan meal quickly. I like to cook and experiment and all that, but sometimes I just want fast and simple. This recipe will work for those times.

1 can manwich
1/2 box pasta
beans of choice
nutritional yeast

Manwich already has lotsa vegetables in it. You don't have to add any. Of course you can if you want. Broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, peas would all go really well.

Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain in a colander and rinse under cold water. Set aside.

Return pasta pot to burner. Add manwich mix, nutritional yeast and beans. Cover and heat on medium low for 5 minutes. Stirring occasionaly.

Add pasta back to pot. Stir. Cover. Heat for 5 minutes more.

If you wish to add additional vegetables add them when you add the beans.

If you like really spicy, add some hot sauce in the last two minutes of the cooking process. or some chili peppers when you add the bean. Extra garlic can never be wrong. A splash of vinegar is not a bad addition. Vegans don't eat regular cheese, but if you're a vegetarian who eats cheese some cheddar, mozzarella and/or parmesaen would also go very nicely.
