AD A recipe for you to make this weekend – Creamy Tahini Pasta ? I’ve been batch cooking this recipe and reheating for lunch during the week and it has been divine ?
Using @stevesleaves Baby Spinach & Super Leaves. The bag contains baby spinach, watercress, baby beet leaves and carrot ? Bursting with goodness and naturally high in Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Folate and Protein.
Again showing that salad leaves can be wilted and folded throughout pasta and other dishes and aren’t just for salads! This recipe is packed with protein from the silken tofu and peas ?
Steve’s Leaves are grown on farms working hard to enhance nature ??Recipe to enjoy as follows:
1 teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil
1 white onion (diced)
300g caserecce pasta or pasta of choice
1 teaspoon of miso paste
90g fresh or frozen peas
1 bag of Steve’s Super Leaves
Handful of fresh basil
300g silken tofu
100ml oat milk
Pinch of nutmeg
1 tablespoon of nutritional yeast
2 garlic cloves (crushed)
Pinch of chilli flakes
1. Begin by heating a large pan on a medium heat and adding the oil to it. After a minute add the diced white onion and allow to cook for 5 minutes stirring frequently.
2. Meanwhile add the pasta to another pan, cover it with water and cook on a medium heat as per instructions.
3. Next add the miso paste to the onion and combine.
4. In a blender prepare the sauce by blending the tahini, silken tofu, oat milk, nutmeg, nutritional yeast, and garlic. Blend until smooth and then add to the pan with the
onion and add the peas. Turn the heat down to low.
5. Drain and rinse the pasta in cold water to stop it from going too soft. Add it to the pan with the rest of the ingredients along with 3/4 of the bag of salad leaves.
6. Combine well and allow to cook for a few minutes more so the peas cook and salad leaves wilt slightly.
7. Chop the remaining 1/4 of the bag of salad leaves up finely along with the fresh basil and combine.
8. Once ready to serve split the pasta between three dishes and top with the salad leave/basil garnish. Option to add a few chilli flakes for a subtle kick against the
