During this transitional period, it’s great to have flexible recipes on hand. By that I mean, recipes that use fresh ingredients and can be adapted to serve hot or cold, and modified to be lighter or more hearty as desired.
This recipe for spring pea pasta with a delicious herb tahini dressing is from Soom Foods. They make, among other things, a fabulous creamy tahini. Its smooth texture makes it perfect to blend into dressings, smoothies and the like.
You can make this spring pea pasta with whole wheat spaghetti, or sub rice noodles for a gluten-free option. To make it even lighter, use courgette noodles. Its great hot off the stove, but also delicious chilled for a light lunch or post-yoga snack.
