Today something from the “real quick and easy department” again.
Vegan pasta with veggie stripes and crunchy hemp seeds
ca. 20 minutes
ingredients for 1-2 people:
- spelt fusilli OR rice fusilli (gluten free) however much you want to eat
- handful of broccoli florets
- 1 large OR 2 small carrots
- 1 ca. 10cm long piece of zucchini
- 1-2 tbsp. hemp seeds
- salt & pepper
- oil for frying
- 1-2 cloves of garlic, chopped
Bring water to the boil for pasta.
Fill some water in a deep pan (I use a stainless steel pan for that) so that it stands about 3 cm high (if you have a steamer basket feel free to use that to prepare the broccoli). Toss the broccoli into the boiling water and cook firm to the bite (takes about 8 minutes). Strain the water.
Clean zucchini and carrots with water, peel carrots and garlic, chop garlic. Use a potato peeler to peel of long stripes from the zucchini and carrots. The inner part of the carrot you can eat right there, if it becomes to difficult to peel 🙂
Toss pasta into the boiling water, add a pinch of salt and oil (I use hemp seed oil). Cook pasta until it reaches the right consistency, probably takes about 8 minutes depending on the kind of pasta you use. Pour the pasta through a strainer.
Heat up a little oil in the pan (I used coconut oil) and briefly fry the veggies in the pan while turning every now and then until it is warm. If you like you can also briefly fry the fusilli. Add garlic and hemp seeds just at the very end. Add spices to taste.
Serve the pasta with the warm veggies.
