Healthy Olive Pasta

HealthyVegan's picture
The latest of my healthy vegan recipes is a very simple olive pasta recipe with a light orange dressing, and is perfect for a night when you are feeling heavy. You can use a fine whole grain pasta, or try spiralizing a vegetable with me! Raw vegetables retain all of their natural nutrients and enzymes.
Ingredients
  Whole grain pasta/2 rutabaga, spiralized into noodles, raw / lightly cooked 200 Gram, cooked
  Olives 10 , pitted and chopped
  Walnuts 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs), chopped
  Orange 1 , zested and juiced
  Olive oil 2 Tablespoon (Approximate)
  Salt 1 Pinch
Directions

1.If you are using a whole grain pasta, cook it by putting it in a pot of water with a pinch of salt and bringing it a boil until cooked.
2.If you are using a rutabaga or making noodles from another vegetable, spiralize by peeling and cutting the ends parallel to each other. Run through your spiralizer, and either use raw or cook lightly by steaming or boiling.
3.Put your noodle of choice in a bowl, along with the olives and walnuts.
4.Make the dressing by zesting the orange into a small bowl, then straining the juice into the bowl. Add half as much olive oil as you have orange juice and some salt, then stir to blend them together.
5.Pour the dressing over the noodles and toss to mix the olives and walnuts.
6.Serve this olive pasta recipe topped with sunflower seed crumble topping, fresh parsley or a pesto. I hope you enjoy the latest of my healthy vegan recipes.
