- 50g light tahini
- 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
- 1 teaspoon white miso
- ¼ teaspoon chilli flames
- ½ teaspoon turmeric
- 4 cashew nuts
- Freshly cracked black pepper and sea salt
Cook ZENB Macaroni Pasta as directed on the box. Once cooked drain and set aside. Heat a frying pan with the butter and add the sweetcorn to the pan. Cook the peas for a couple of minutes until they are thawed then add the beans to the pan too.2.
Season the sweetcorn and beans with a pinch of salt Blend the tahini with the spices and half of the sweetcorn and 150 millilitres of water, until smooth. Now mix the pasta with the tahini sauce and warm through in the pan3.
Serve the sweetcorn and tahini pasta in bowls with grated cashews on top. The dressed salad will keep for three days in a sealed container in the fridge.
For an extra nutty flavour use roasted cashews grated on top, or explore different nuts like macadamias and brazil nuts which all add a great flavour.
