As deliciously simple, healthy and budget-friendly pasta dish.
2 cups Brown Rice Spaghetti (cooked)
1/2 cup Cashews
2 Tbsp Nutritional Yeast
1/2 Tsp Garlic Powder
1/2 Sea Salt
1 1/2 cups Frozen Edamame (thawed)
2 cups Parsley (finely chopped)
Sea Salt & Black Pepper (to taste)
1) Bring a large pot of water to a boil and add brown rice spaghetti. Cook according to the directions on the package. Remove from heat, strain and run cold water over the pasta to prevent over-cooking.
2) Meanwhile, make your 'parmesan' seasoning by adding cashews, nutritional yeast, garlic powder and sea salt to your food processor. Blend well until it reaches a spice-like consistency. Set aside.
3) In a large bowl, toss pasta with edamame, chopped parsley, salt and pepper to taste, and your desired amount of 'parmesan' seasoning. Divide into bowls and enjoy!
No Edamame: Use frozen peas or any leftover veggies.
Meat Lover: Replace edamame with cooked chicken breast or shrimp.
Make it Spicy: Garnish with red pepper flakes.
