Ingredients:Cheezy Low-Carb Mung Bean Pasta

Half a packet (2x serves) of mung bean pasta

1/2 Cup of nutritional yeast

1 Tablespoon of nuttelex

2 Cloves of garlic – minced

1/2 Onion – diced

1 Leek

100g Artichokes

100g  semi-dried tomatoes

Sprinkle of salt and pepper

Prep all your vegetables. Leeks should be sliced thinly. Chop artichokes and semi-dried tomatoes into small slices/chunks. Set aside. Boil a pot of hot water and add mung bean pasta. Allow to cook for 10min approx. or until ready.

In the mean time, heat the nuttelex onion and garlic in a pan. Once nuttelex has melted, add leak and cook whilst stirring for 7min. Keep an eye on that pasta…

Turn heat down in pan and add artichokes, stir for another 2min then add semi-dried tomatoes. Add pasta and approx. 1-1 1/2 cups of the water from pasta to the pan. Stir for another 5min. Add the lemon and nutritional yeast and reduce to a simmer for 2min. ‘Sauce’ should thicken. Season with salt and pepper and serve! (serves 2).
