  • 200g dried spaghetti ( I use brown rice pasta -50g per person)
  • 2 pack (500g) Slendier Spaghetti
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 300g mushroom, sliced
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp sea salt


  • 2 cans chickpeas, drained
  • 2 tsp sea salt
  • 100ml olive oil
  • 300ml water
  • 3 tsp nutritional yeast (optional)


  • Generous amount of cracked pepper and your favourite herb (I use chopped parsley)


  1. Drain the Slendier from the packet and boil lightly or wash with boiling water.
  2. Put the pasta in a pan of boiling water and cook according to the packet instructions.
  3. While they cook, make the sauce by placing drained chickpea, olive oil, nutritional yeast (optional) and salt in a food processor and process, then slowly add the water to process until very creamy.
  4. Set aside then sauté the garlic and mushrooms in a little olive oil and salt then add the chickpea sauce.
  5. Once the pasta is cooked, drain it. When you drain the pasta, pour the hot water over the Slendier to warm up then mix the drained pasta and Slendier with the sauce.
  6. Serve with generous amount of cracked pepper and chopped parsley.

Add greens to make this dish even more protein rich.

I like adding frozen peas or shredded kale for extra protein and bright green colour. For pea, add the peas two minutes before the end of pasta cooking time. For kale, saute with mushroom.

It’s a creamy, comforting dish but egg and dairy free with nourishing elements. Chickpeas help give an egg-like flavour and helps make the sauce rich and creamy. To give the dish an extra cheesy flavour, you can add nutritional yeast, which you can get at health food stores.
