Chickpea Salad and Broccolini/White Bean Pasta

The weather has been getting nicer quickly, and it’s staying lighter out later, so we had our first outdoor meal last week! Had a chickpea salad and a pasta, super tasty and fitting for the locale.

Chickpea Salad Ingredients:IMG_8672

  • 2 cans drained chickpeas
  • 4 roma tomatoes, diced
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • 1 can drained kalamata olives
  • 2 cups fresh spinach
  •  

    1 cucumber, diced

    Just mix all of this together, and then use whichever dressing you like. I used a lemon vinaigrette the first night but wasn’t too found of it, so used vegan ranch for leftovers and it was delicious.

    IMG_8673Pasta Ingredients:

  • 1 package of pasta of your choiceIMG_8670
  • 2 bunches of broccolini, chopped
  • 2 cups veggie broth
  • 2 Tbsp garlic
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 drained can of white beans
  • 1 package of apple-sage vegan sausage, diced

This is another one pot wonder!

First fry the sausage in a little olive oil in a large pot. Then add all the ingredients but the beans and broccolini. Cook on simmer for 10-15 minutes. Then add the broccolini and beans for another 10 minutes, then serve once all the broth is cooked off.
