I had walked by the same big box of high protein pea pasta at Costco a few times and I finally decided to give it a try. As a vegan I love high protein pastas. I usually use a brand called Asian Explore (bulk barn), which is high protein, low fat and moderate carb, plus it taste good. But I liked the rotini shape of this brand and I like to try new things! I opted to make a classic pasta with sundried tomatoes and olives (plus some extra veggies and avocado ofcourse). It only took me about 15 minutes to make.
Gluten Free and vegan Pasta
-10 ounces of pea pasta (you could use any high protein, gluten free pasta).
-2/3 cup of chopped sun-dried tomatoes.
-1/2 cup of pitted black olives.
-1 can of organic chickpeas (rinsed well).
- 3 garlic cloves (chopped).
-1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil*
***I threw in 1/2 cup shredded carrots and beets that I had on hand (optional).
***Also topped with avocado for healthy fat (and because avocados are life).
