Vegan pasta with no-cook tomato 'sauce'

Here's my contribution to the May vegetarian theme:

3 medium sized ripened tomatoes with lots of flavour
1 garlic clove - grated with a wasabi grater, crushed or finely chopped
1 tablespoon of rinsed capers, chopped
8 olives, sliced (I use green, manzanilla olives)
1 finely sliced shallot (alternatively, use scallion/spring onion or a small piece of onion)
3 to 4 tablespoons of good olive oil
enough dried pasta (your choice) for two portions continue reading...

I forgot to take out the frozen rice I made on sunday (again) so I had to cook pasta again!... So it was almost the same bento as yesterday but it was tastier as I didn't forget to add the dressings this time ;) continue reading...

Tonnato sauce - a rich tuna sauce for pasta

This is a variation on a famous Italian sauce for a dish called vitello tonnato, but it omits the vitello (veal) and just uses the sauce to toss with pasta. It is a very frugal dish since you can make dinner for two with 1 can of tuna, pasta, and a bit of olive oil and seasonings. (You may want to add a green salad or something for a complete meal.) continue reading...

  • 1 can of tuna, well drained
  • 3-4 garlic cloves
  • 2-3 filets of canned anchovies (you can omit this if you like, but add more salt in that case)
  • About 1/4 cup or more of good quality olive oil
  • 2 Tbs. lemon juice
  • 1-2 Tbs.
