Kids' Pasta

This is a very easy and popular kids' pasta recipe with lots of different protein options! It's great in lunchboxes too. 

Ingredients: 

  • 250g/9 oz kid-friendly pasta shapes 
  • 200g/2 cups mixed frozen veg
  • ½ red pepper, diced (optional)
  • Handful vegan cheese, grated (optional) 
  • 100g spinach (optional)

Optional protein extras: fried vegan chicken strips/pieces (cooked according to packet), mixed seeds (sunflower, pumpkin, sesame), hemp seeds, marinated tofu pieces (eg Cauldron tofu), chopped up 'sausage', pine nuts, edamame beans, nutritional yeast 

Dressing

Either: use a shop-bought vegan pesto (eg Sacla or Zest) or mix 2 tbsp olive oil with 1 tsp syrup (eg maple or agave) and ¼ tsp mustard 

Method: 

  1. Cook the pasta according to the instructions on the packet and then add the frozen vegetables and spinach into the water 3-5 minutes before the pasta is ready. 
  2. Stir through the red pepper, protein option and dressing then sprinkle with vegan cheese :)
