MUNG BEAN PASTA WITH GREEN PEAS

Mung bean pasta is not very popular pasta type, but very nutritious and healthy though. If you are trying to stay away from wheat pasta and for this reason you cut consumption of your favorite dish, that is an amazing solution how to eat sin-free pasta and don’t punish yourself for eating cheat food.

This dish is very nourishing  and is a perfect meal for those, who do sport a lot and need good nutrition, rich in protein and other goodness. One serving contains 28 g of protein, which is almost half of daily intake.

If you are curious about where to get the pasta, you can buy it online here or in The Beginnings shops (in Latvia), for example.

I have tried new cashew cream recipe flavoring it with truffles, which I brought some time ago from Italy. I did like it a lot and I am sharing it with you just as a new idea for cashew cream flavor, but trust me this pasta will be super delicious even without truffles and this is not a must for this dish.

So less talk, more action. Lets go!
