All I have to say is why did I not know about edamame pasta noodles until now?! They are packed with protein, completely gluten-free, and make for a tasty pasta dish! I used this recipe to meal prep my lunches for a week – so this will give you 5 servings. And unlike traditional pasta, one serving of this dish has 37 grams of protein!! That is insane for a vegan meal.
I used nutritional yeast to add a cheesy flavor to the pasta, since I don’t eat dairy products, but you can always substitute that out for real cheese if you’re not vegan/dairy-free. That said, if you haven’t tried nutritional yeast before, maybe give it a try! It’s packed with B12 🙂
Vegan Edamame Pasta
Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add a pinch of salt.
Once boiling, turn off heat, add your edamame pasta noodles, and cover for 4-5 minutes.
Drain pasta and set aside.
Heat a separate large pot over medium/high heat. Add the coconut oil and let melt completely.
Add your chopped bell peppers, spinach, and vegan "meat" crumbles. Cook for 5-7 minutes until veggies begin to soften and vegan "meat crumbles" are cooked through.
Add garlic, nutritional yeast, and a pinch of salt. Cook for another minute.
Add the vegetable and sauce mixture to your cooked edamame noodles, directly into the pot. Toss to coat the pasta.
Serve immediately, with extra nutritional yeast and sea salt if desired.
