comments 17


happy valentine’s day guys !

hope you’ve got some lovely romantic treat planned for today – no matter how you’re celebrating or who you’re celebrating with.

as a finale to the romance week here on the blog, i cooked a romantic dinner for david – one-pot pasta, strawberries, champagne – the whole shebang !
here’s what it looked like :

i think it’s fun to think of food suitable for different special occasions. setting the table just right. an atmospheric playlist. food to get you in a specific mood.

so i’d be more than happy to make more of these special occasions videos. let me know which occasions you’d like me to make a video of !

creamy cremini & broccoli one-pot pasta
serves 2
2-3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
5-8 cremini mushrooms, quartered ( depending on size )
2 tbsp tahini
500-750 ml / 2-3 cups unsweetened plant milk ( like oat or soy )
200 g whole wheat spaghetti ( or whichever pasta you prefer )
half a broccoli, cut into florets
salt & white pepper, to taste
1-2 tbsp white miso paste ( or palm-oil free, organic buillon )
2 tbsp nutritional yeast ( optional )

serving suggestion :
fresh basil, lemon juice, black pepper, chili flakes

– in a pot, sautée the garlic and mushrooms in tahini for a quick minute. add salt & white pepper to taste, and a splash of water if needed.
– pour 500 ml / 2 cups of the plant milk in the pot and bring to a boil, then add the pasta ( and buillon if using instead of miso ). simmer without a lid for half the cooking time suggested on the pasta package, stirring frequently.
– fold in the broccoli florets and add more milk if needed. simmer under lid until the pasta is al dente, stirring and checking if more liquid is needed frequently. remove from heat, mix in the miso and nutritional yeast ( if using ). give it a taste and add more salt and pepper if needed.
– serve hot. delicious with fresh basil, chili, black pepper, and a squeeze of lemon juice. up the romance by serving both portions on a huge plate lady and the tramp style.

  1. Just made this to my friends for a Valentines day/typical Sunday dinner night. They loved it. Added my favourite Turkish spice sumak, to make the whole thing a bit more sour. Used one liter of oat milk, however it was too dry for my own taste (made the dinner for four people). Or maybe I just added too much pasta (which I almost never eat, so I am not quite accustomed with the portion sizing). Greetings from Lithuania!

  2. Hej Jenny! I just wanted to leave a comment to show my appreciation for your blog and videos. I came across your video about “late night snacking” the other day and felt so inspired, and since then I have watched a lot of your other videos, for example about minimalism (had to clean my bathroom after that and follow your tips to clear out stuff that’s just lying around that I don’t really use). I think what you’re doing is great and I love your recipies! I’m definitely gonna try the one-pot pasta in the weekend. I wish you the best!

    • oh thank you so much lovely ! this just made smile big time :)
      so happy to hear that i can throw some inspiration your way, and i hope you’ll like the pasta :D

  7. Hi Jenny. First of all: Thank you for this awesome recipe (and all the other ones on your blog). My what-i-want-to-cook-next list is totally crammed with the ideas and suggestions from your videos =) I was wondering whether it would be possible to make this sauce separetely and not in one pot with the pasta?Do you think it would turn out to be too runny? I was thinking of maybe adding in a tbsp of coconut flour to thicken it if necessary, do you think this might work out?

  11. This was delicious!! Unfortunately the Oat milk split – I think I allowed it to boil for too long! When I make it again I think it could taste even better!! Thanks for the yummy recipe
