Easy Healthy Vegan Cheesy High-Protein Pasta

Easy Healthy Vegan Cheesy High-Protein Pasta

This Easy Healthy Vegan Cheesy High-Protein Pasta is packed full of protein and it’s gluten-free if obviously made with lentil/bean gluten-free pasta. One serving contains 41 grams of protein.

Back in the day when I was first starting out eating healthier and learning to eat healthier, I always thought that pasta is a no no, you can’t eat a healthy pasta dish.

However, carbs aren’t bad for you, it just depends what you do with them and how you prepare them. If you prepare pasta like this recipe I am showing you today, then there is nothing wrong with eating pasta for dinner and still be healthy.

You can use regular gluten-free pasta if you prefer but for this recipe to have a high protein content do you need to use bean or lentil pasta, even chickpea pasta will work..

Normal gluten-free pasta is often a mixture of potato, corn and rice flour. While it’s gluten-free, it’s full of refined carbohydrates and some stabilizers, so it’s not something that I consider healthy and nutrient-dense.
