Introducing the RPL Recipe Club!
Spring is the time for new beginnings and I’m delighted to share our new monthly recipe club for Rainbow Plant Life readers!
I had so much fun seeing so many RPL readers participate in our 31 Days of Vegan Challenge earlier this year that I wanted to turn this into a monthly initiative.
What is the RPL Recipe Club?
Essentially, this is like the 31 Days of Vegan challenge, just on a (much) smaller scale.
Each month, I’ll choose one Rainbow Plant Life recipe that anyone in the RPL community can choose to make.
You can make it just for funzies OR you can enter to win an amazing prize each month! This month, we’re giving away the Starting Lineup set by Great Jones.
How to participate:
Participating is easy! Just follow these steps:
- Sign up for the Rainbow Plant Life newsletter (only newsletter subscribers are eligible to win the monthly prize, though you can of course still participate without being signed up).
- Make this month’s recipe, take a picture of it, and email it to me at email@example.com with the subject line “Recipe Club” by 11:59pm on the last day of the month. By sending your picture in via email, you’ll be entered to win a prize.
- For an additional entry, post the pic to Instagram, tag me @rainbowplantlife and use the hashtag #RPLRecipeClub.
- And for one more bonus entry, leave a review on the recipe itself. You must use the same email address from which you sent your initial entry.
At the end of each month, we will randomly select a winner and share our favorite photos here!

April 2023 Recipe: Creamy Lemon Asparagus Pasta
For the very first edition of the RPL Recipe Club, we’re making one of my favorite ever spring dishes: Lemon Asparagus Pasta. It’s a vegan spin on Spaghetti al Limone and it’s bursting with zippy and bright spring flavors.
Please feel free to customize it based on your preferences and what’s in season. If asparagus isn’t in season for you yet, swap it out for broccolini, green beans, or another crisp-tender green vegetable. Don’t like olives? Feel free to omit.
The blog post has full written (and video) instructions, tips for making this recipe, and ingredient substitutions, so be sure to check it out!
This lemon asparagus pasta is bursting with zippy and bright spring flavors. It features crisp-tender asparagus, fresh herbs, and a citrusy olive oil sauce that’s naturally creamy (without any cream or flour). Perfect for a quick weeknight meal or a fancy dinner party!
April 2023 Prize:
This month, we’re delighted to give away the Starting Lineup Set by Great Jones!
The set includes a small dutch oven, half sheet pan, and frying pan. I have all three items and can confirm they are absolutely gorgeous and great to cook with.
A note for international readers: Due to the exorbitant cost of international shipping, we can only ship the above prize within the continental United States. However, you can still enter to win if you live elsewhere. If your entry is selected as the winner, we’ll send you a payment of $150 in lieu of the prize. Payment will be sent via PayPal.
Other important details and FAQ
Can I make modifications to the recipe and still enter?
Absolutely! But your entry won’t count if you use any kind of animal product – Rainbow Plant Life is a vegan blog, after all!
How old do I need to be to participate?
You must be at least 18 years old to participate.
I don’t live in the United States. Can I still enter?
Yes! You can still enter the monthly contest, with a caveat.

How is the winner chosen?
We’ll choose the winner at random (based on email entries, instagram entries, and rating/review entries on the blog). The quality of your photography is not a factor!
I’m so excited to start this new series and to see y’all’s creations.
