Cooking with Kids Vegan Pasta

Now that summer is just around the corner, I am revising my lunch menus to include foods that use less energy to heat up and are quick and tasty. Pasta salad is a typical side dish that has many variations. Below I share a vegan pasta salad that we enjoyed as family. My kids are not fond of raw onions so next times I will use chives to add flavor.

Vegan Pasta Ingredients

  • 1 box of macaroni
  • 1 cup Vegenaise
  • 2 tablespoons dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon Bragg Organic apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon of dill weed
  • 1 teaspoon McKays Chicken Style Instant Broth & Seasoning
  • 2 stalks of celery, chopped
  • 1 sweet red onion diced
  • 1 cup of olives, diced
  • 1 carrot, diced
  • 2-3 Kosher dill pickles, diced


Cook the macaroni as recommended on the packaging or for about 8 minutes.

Cool the macaroni with cool water. Let your kids help you combine all measured ingredients together. Refrigerate for 30 minutes. Serve.
