What’s for dinner?

As a single mom sometimes I find it hard to create delicious, healthy & quick meals for my sweet little boy (who is four at the moment) and I. All of the demands, responsibilities & time restraints make it hard to spend much time in the kitchen to prepare healthy meals that are not from a box or containing loads of preservatives. Pasta seems to be one of those meals that I can prepare, toss just about anything into it & my little one will usually enjoy it.

Delicious, creamy & totally healthy!

Organic Ingredients:

Lemon Yogurt Pasta:

Whole wheat pasta

Handful kale

Handful spinach

2 Handfuls fresh tomatoes

Handful pine nuts

Olive oil

Nutritional Yeast

1-2 Tbsp Plain yogurt

2-3 Tbsp Fresh Lemon juice

Handful Fresh basil

1 tsp Turmeric

Himalayan salt & pepper to taste

Toasted chickpeas

Method:

Bring water to a boil, toss in raw pasta for about 20 minutes or until Al dente. In the mean time dice up tomatoes, kale, spinach & basil. Once pasta is tender, drain & toss in olive oil, turmeric, nutritional yeast, kale & spinach (the heat allows them to cook slightly & become tender as well) then mix well. Once mixed toss in pine nuts, yogurt, salt & pepper and Enjoy!

Toasted Chickpeas:

I made my own chickpeas by cooking in a crockpot for part of the day. You can use a can if you do not make your own chickpeas. Simply preheat over to 425 degrees, while heating oven place chickpeas, olive oil, salt & pepper into a plastic bag, mix gently & once over is heated place mixture into a baking dish & bake for 20 minutes. If you time it right both the pasta & chickpeas should be ready at the same time.

Hope you Enjoy, please let me know what you think, feel free to leave a comment down below.

Until next time… Peace be with you…
