Sesame Pumpkin Cannellini Bean Soba Noodles
If you’ve been following my recipes for a while, you’ll know that I absolutely LOVE my legumes : ) They’re incredibly nutrient dense – think fibre, plant based, a great way to boost your daily veg, delicious, easy to cook, versatile (yes, you can put beans in sweet treats too – how rad is that!), extremely convenient sitting in the pantry (singing eat me, eat me, eat meeeeee) and a wonderfully economical way to up your nutrient intake in no time. You’ll also notice if you’ve been around here a little that I love Japanese flavours too, soooooooooo may I introduce you to one of my ultimate ways to team the two together with a truly scrumptious and oh so simple meal – SESAME PUMPKIN CARROT CANNELLINI BEAN SOBA NOODLES using Macro Certified Organic Cannellini Beans, only at WOOLWORTHS. My friends, this truly is such a great dish you can whip together quickly and easily and feel confident you’re getting a wonderful balance of nutrients into your meal. The recipe is now live on the blog – link just below! Jacq xoxox
