Ingredients

  • 1 7oz Explore Cuisine Edamame Spaghetti
  • 4 cups spinach (finely sliced & packed)
  • 2 spring onions (finely sliced)
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes (halved)
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • Green Tahini Sauce
  • 1 cup fresh basil (packed)
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 1/4 cup cashews
  • 1/2 cup water (the pasta cooking water)
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice (3 lemons)
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • freshly cracked black pepper (to taste)
  • 1/4 cup brazil nut parmesan (to top)

Instructions

  1. Cook pasta for 4 minutes, then drain and rinse briefly under cold water. Be sure to reserve 1/2 cup cooking water – it’ll make a huge difference to your sauce!
  2. While the pasta cooks, make up the Brazil nut parmesan by blitzing all ingredients in a blender until crumbly.
  3. Once your pasta is cooked, make the sauce by blending all sauce ingredients (including your reserved pasta cooking water) until smooth.
  4. Place the pasta back in the pan and turn the element onto a low heat.
  5. Add the sauce and spinach, cooking for just a minute or two until the spinach it very lightly wilted but still vibrant.
  6. Finally, mix through the tomatoes and spring onions and then remove from heat, (this maintains all the nutritional benefits of the raw vegetables while lightly heating them).
  7. Plate your pasta into bowls, adding 1 tbsp of parmesan to each plus cracked black pepper and extra sea salt to taste.
