Green noodles 💚

 Hi everyone!

In summer I am always inspired by all those lovely smelled herbs. And I love to rub those into my hands only to smell their fragrance! 🙈 and my all time favorite is basil! I love how it looks and smell! I like it roasted with tomatoes, to strawberrys or in my homemade pesto but the list goes on and on…

Today I thrown some vegetables into my pan and it turns out SUPER DELICIOUS!!  My mum was so jealous because I only make a portion for one 😁 So I decided to share the recipe with you ASAP!!! It’s so refreshing – and so good for you‘! And of course it is gluten free, dairy free & vegan!

For one portion you will need:

🌱3 hands of uncooked buckwheat noodles (you could also use spelt or wheat – but then it’s not gluten free)
🌱 2 hands of fresh basil
🌱 a half zucchini
🌱 3 mushrooms
🌱 half a shallot
🌱 2 big hands of fresh baby spinach
🌱 tbsp native olive oil
🌱 15g pine nuts
🌱 bit (I used a half a knob) of garlic
🌱 3 tbsp almond milk
🌱 half a lemon
🌱 salt & pepper

Directions: first heat up a pan with enough water to cook your noodles. When it’s cook, give some salt into the water & place the noodles in the pan (cook to your directions on the package). Then chop your vegetables -shallots into small cubes, zucchini & mushrooms into slices- heat up another pan to medium high heat and place the pine nuts into it. When they starts to get brown place them in your food processor. After this, heat up a tablespoon of oil into that pan. Sauté your shallots and put your vegetables to your shallots. To make the sauce give your basil to the pine nuts as well as the almond milk, one tbsp of olive oil, the juice of half a lemon, salt and pepper.  Blend until everything is well combined. When noodles are cooked al dente, drain them and give them to the vegetables and pour over your sauce. Now turn of your heat and give the spinach to your noodles and let them rest for 1-2 minutes. Now it’s ready to serve and to enjoy ☺️
