Recipe notes: The caesar dressing comes from my High Protein Vegan Cookbook which offers 5 weeks of meal plans, including grocery lists. Interested in checking it out? Scroll to the bottom of this page here.

For best results with chickpea pasta I recommend boiling it for a few minutes longer then the packaging suggests. I have never had a mushy chickpea pasta noodle, but I've definitely had them be too crunchy. My favourite brand is the Chickapea brand which is sold in bulk at Costco Canada.

 

Ingredients:

100g serving chickpea pasta 

3 cups spring mix 

 

Caesar Dressing, 4 servings:

1/3 cup tahini 

2 tbsp lemon juice 

2 tbsp apple cider vinegar

2 tbsp dijon mustard 

1 tbsp nutritional yeast

4 cloves garlic

1 tbsp capers, with the brine

2 tsp black pepper

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 cup water 

 

Recipe:

Bring 3 cups water to a boil. 

Add chickpea pasta and boil for 10-12 minutes or until tender.

Add all the dressing ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth.

Drain and rinse pasta and add to a serving bowl.

Add spring mix and 1/4 of the dressing.

Toss well to combine.

Enjoy!
