The use of the nutritional yeast (provides cheese flavour), beans, lemon, garlic and cashews makes this recipe a much more nutritional version of the classic but is still something you can get your teeth into, plus it’s vegan too!
Another bonus is that it can be made in under 20mins for a super quick meal.
Recipe (serves 2)
-230g cannellini beans (pre-soaked & drained)
-juice of 1 lemon
-2 garlic cloves
-2 heaped Tbsp nutritional yeast (if you’re not vegan/don’t have this then feel free to use parmesan)
-pasta and veg of choice (I tend to use frozen peas, carrots & wholegrain pasta)
-salt & pepper to taste
Optional: 2 or 3 pitted olives (omit salt) or pinch of turmeric for colour
