PROTEIN PESTO

  1. Prepare the cloves of Garlic
  2. Then place the Basil, Walnut Nut Butter, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Hemp Protein Powder and Himalayan Salt into the Food Processor
  3. Blend until it forms a smooth texture (add more Olive Oil if you prefer a thinner consistency)

RAINBOW VEGGIE SPAGHETTI

  1. Using the Spiraliser, spiralise the vegetables to form long, thin curls of ‘spaghetti’.
  2. If you don't own a Spiraliser you can use a Vegetable Peeler but this takes a little longer
  3. Add fresh cherry tomatoes for extra flavour and texture
  4. Add an optional squeeze of lemon juice
Variations

Instead of the spiralised vegetables you can use any kind of pasta or even a healthy dose of brown rice. The Protein Pesto is a very versitile and delcious paste that you can use as a sauce, dip or spread. Some of you may be inclined to eat this pesto straight from the pot and you'd be forgiven if you wanted to, it's that good.

Benefits

Other than the vegetables, this uber healthy 'pasta' dish includes some totally unadulterated ingredients combined to form a pesto of divine proportions. Combining the fresh Walnut Butter and Hemp Protein Powder brings a large amount of 'complete' protein (meaning that you get all essential amino acids), fibre, magnesium, phosphorous, potassium, iron and healthy fatty acids into this pesto. If your on a no a meat diet then all of these elements are essential for building a good immunity, regulating the blood, improving stamina and also helping combat anxiety.
