Next add roughly 125ml of water and set the pot to simmer.
Make sure to keep stirring so that it does not stick to the pan.
Next get the other ingredients in the mix, by chopping up the tomatoes and slicing the olives and the chili.
Add them to the pan along with the salt and olive oil.
Cover the pan and wait until the pasta is completely cooked, stirring regularly in the process.
Finally, enjoy your serving of vegan friendly linguine.

For a sweet treat try some vegan brownies.
Before starting the recipe, make sure you have a baking tray with baking paper and that you pre-heat your oven to 170 degrees Celsius.
Start by melting the dark chocolate in a saucepan, whisking it so it does not burn.
Slowly pour in the vegetable oil as well as the oat milk until it is all mixed together. In a separate bowl add and mix the sugar, flour and cocoa powder.
After both mixes are done, add the powder mix into the liquid chocolate mix and give it a stir.
Finally evenly spread the mixture into your baking tray and put it in the oven for about 15-20 minutes.
Afterwards, enjoy your sweet, dairy free, treat.
