No Soy? No Problem!
Being vegan does not necessarily mean that you have to eat a lot of soy to maintain your protein intake. I tend not to like it that much. In addition to that my body doesn’t either. That’s why I created this recipe. It is perfect whenever you need a quick and healthy vegan lunch solution. Whether you eat it right away or you prepare it in advance to take it with you wherever you want to. It only takes up 10 minutes of your time while it’s packed with a lot of protein and healthy fats.
Where does the protein come from?
I love to prefer red lentil pasta over traditional pasta as it is made from 100% lentil flour. Similar to chickpea flour or pea flour, red lentils have about 23g protein/100g. This is almost a fourth!
Have you ever tried lentil pasta or an alternative? If not I can absolutely recommend trying it. If you did I’d be happy to hear how you liked it. ?
Makes one bowl:
- 100g lentil pasta
- 1 ripe avocado
- 1 spear of spring onions
- a handful cherry tomatoes
- juice of 1/2 lemon
- pine nuts
- black cumin
- salt and pepper
- basil for decoration – optional
