Mixed herb pesto pasta with peas and feta

Here comes the recipe for the mixed herb pesto pasta with peas and feta that you asked for.
You’ll need:

  • a box of red lentil pasta or any pasta you like
  • 1/2 cup of walnuts
  • 4 cups of mixed fresh herbs, I used about 2 cups of basil, 1 cup of sage and 1/2 cup each of oregano and mint
  • about a cup of EVOO (Extra virgin olive oil), depending on how thick you like your pesto
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • a cup of green peas
  • 1/3 cup of goat feta
  • some lemon zest
  • teaspoon of pink Himalayan salt
    Start by toasting your walnuts in the oven @400 (max. 10 mins, shaking the pan halfway).
    Once cooled, place them in your blender together with all the herbs, garlic and oil and pulse until smooth to your liking. Transfer to a jar and stir in sea salt & lemon zest.
    Cook pasta & add in peas at the last minute. Strain & place in a large bowl, stir in pesto and top with goat feta! Bon Appetit!

Vegan Chili

This is a hearty, comforting veggie Chili recipe!
I used to love my turkey chili recipe but having gone Pesceterian, I needed to adapt. I tried a few veggie chili recipes where you try and make your own mixture to replace the meat texture, and none of the carrot-walnut “meat replacement” suggestions were cutting it for me, so for this one it had to be the @yvesveggiecuisine veggie ground. I don’t love using meat replacements all the time since they can be very processed and contain a lot of soy, but for this recipe I find it’s worth it.
One serving has 300 calories, 1.3 g fat, 39g net carbs and a whopping 30g of protein.
You will need:

  • 1 pack (175 grams) of @yvesveggiecuisine veggie ground
  • 2 tbsps Extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 large 🧅 , 2 cloves of 🧄
  • 3 peppers, I love doing different colours
  • 1 can each of kidney beans, black beans, organic diced tomatoes
  • 2 tbsps of Chili powder, sea salt to taste, cayenne pepper to taste 🌶

Fry onions in olive oil until translucent, add garlic cloves. Add cut up peppers, let them steam for about 5 mins. Add Yves veggie ground and add your beans and tomatoes. Bring to a boil, turn down to a simmer for 45 mins.

Enjoy!

Smashed potatoes

My new favorite way to prepare potatoes. You’re welcome. For these smashed potatoes, do this:

  • parboil any amount/kind of potatoes, depending on size 15-20 mins
  • place on sheet, press down with potato masher or even a fork, anything works! Top with salt, pepper, rosemary (fun fact: the more you season potatoes the easier they are to digest) drizzle some olive oil
  • 20 mins @450 from one side
    -flip, add fresh garlic, another 20 mins @450
    Enjoy the most delicious potatoes!

Avocado low sugar nice cream

Frozen avocado mango no sugar added protein nice cream!
It’s low carb (23.4 g), high fat (23.8 g), high protein (28.2 g). It’s definitely enough for 2 at least. So you can half those numbers above if you’re sharing.
I came up with this randomly because I was craving something cooling, needed some healthy fats but didn’t feel like something sweet.
You’ll need:

  • 1 cup frozen avocado chunks
  • 1/2 Cup frozen mango
  • cup of kale
  • scoop of vanilla protein powder, I used genuine health @genuinehealth
  • 1.5 cup of unsweetened vanilla cashew milk
    Blend it all up in a high power blender.
    Get ready for one of the creamiest experience of your life 😆
