So guess what peeps? The Happy Earth People red lentil pasta is absolutely divine. It doesn’t taste like lentils at all! Not that I don’t like lentils but I just don’t like my pasta to taste like lentils. And these taste and feel like pasta in your mouth. And the flavours in this recipe suits it so well.
This is my own recipe made with what I had available in the kitchen. It took me 10 minutes to make so it would be perfect for a quick dinner for the family.
- 1 box of Happy earth people red lentil pasta I cooked the pasta in less than 6 minutes.
- 100 g Purple cabbage
- 1 Yellow pepper
- 1 Red onion
- 2 Eggs
- 100g Mozzarella cheese
- 250 g Cherry tomatoes
- 2 Tablespoons brewers yeast
- Salt, pepper, coconut oil, olive oil
- Optional: Earthshine Onion Rings
Cook the red lentil pasta according to package instructions and drain.
In a separate pot, fry your chopped red onion, purple cabbage, yellow pepper and cherry tomatoes for a few minutes.
In a separate bowl, mix together your two eggs, the grated mozzarella cheese and your brewers yeast.
Chuck your drained pasta and veggie mix into the eggs mixture and mix to combine.
Season to taste and top with your Earthshine onion rings.
Serve and enjoy!
