Main Dishes: Quinoa Pasta with Tomato Artichoke Sauce
Who doesn't love pasta??! Eating according to an Alkaline Lifestyle doesn't mean you have to give up pasta at all. You can eat it moderately if considering the following:
- always choose quinoa or spelt pasta,
- leave out all the meat and tuna,
- and add loads of fresh vegetables.
Ingredients for 2 persons
7 oz. (200g) quinoa or spelt pasta
8 oz. (220g) fresh or frozen artichoke hearts
5 oz. (140g) fresh tomatoes
1 medium-sized onion
1 clove of garlic
1 oz. (30g) pine nuts
1 tsp. yeast-free vegetable stock
3 tbsp. fresh basil
1/2 teaspoon organic sea salt
1 pinch of cayenne pepper
2 tbsp. cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil
1. Prepare fresh artichoke and cook until tender. (You don't know how to prep an artichoke? Watch this video on Youtube.) Alternatively, use frozen artichoke hearts.
2. Cook pasta following packet directions. Meanwhile, cut tomatoes into cubes, and chop the onion, garlic and basil into small pieces.
3. Heat 2 tbsp. of olive oil in pan and stir-fry pine nuts, onions and garlic for a couple of minutes. Add tomatoes and the (cooked!) artichoke hearts and stir-fry for another 2 minutes.
4. Dissolve yeast-free vegetable stock in 1/2 cup of water (check directions), then add to pan. Simmer on low heat for 2 more minutes, stir occasionally.
5. Finally, add the basil and season with cayenne pepper and salt. Pour the sauce over the cooked pasta and serve immediately. Enjoy this alkaline dish!
