Vegan Friendly Pasta Salad Ready To Stir
Editors Note: This recipe was submitted on our Favorite Camping Recipes Page
The following recipe is for my Mom's Pasta Salad. I have modified it to be vegan compliant but I will share the original with you as well. This wasn't made in Lady T but I always make it before we go camping.
Step 1: The Pasta
I use penne pasta but you can choose something else if you like. Boil one box of penne until the pasta is "al dente". This means firm to the bite. If the pasta is overcooked, it will turn into mush once you add the other ingredients! I don't add salt to the water but you can add salt to taste after mixing the other ingredients.
Step 2: The Onion
I like to use red onions because they are a not as strong and look more colorful in the mix. I usually dice about two thirds of a medium red onion but you can modify this to taste.
Step 3: The Vegan Treatment
I had to try this recipe a few different ways before it was close enough to my Mom's for me to enjoy. The Sazon (without annato) was always part of my Mom's version, but I had to find substitutes for the mayo and bacon. Earth Balance Mindful Mayo is delicious and can be found at any Whole Foods store. McCormick's Bac'n Pieces are made from textured soy and add salt to the recipe.
