I love pasta, and since I've discovered Happy Earth People's products I've been enjoying gluten free & protein-packed pasta a lot more.
So I thought I'd share my favorite quick and easy veggie pasta recipe that you can make for a light lunch or dinner!
1 cup of Happy Earth People's chickpea pasta
1 cup of mixed veggies, I used broccoli, spinach, mini corn and zucchini
2 tbsp of Tahini (I used the ones from Oh Mega Nut Butter's)
A squeeze of lemon juice
Extra virgin olive oil
Salt & pepper
Chilli flakes (optional)
Fresh Basil leaves to garnish
Cook the pasta as per cooking instructions on the box, and keep +/-4 tbsp of pasta water for later.
Steam veggies until tender and season with salt, pepper and chilli flakes to taste. Squeeze over a little lemon juice for extra freshness.
Once everything is cooked, add the pasta and veggies back to the pot that you cooked the pasta in and on a low heat stir in the above mentioned pasta water and Tahini until everything is coated. If it's a little dry add more tahini or pasta water and stir it through lightly until it's creamy.
Season with more salt & pepper if needed. Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil and add a squeeze of lemon. Garnish with fresh Basil leaves and enjoy!
