Edamame Fettuccine with roasted vegetables

Recently, I’ve been trying to come up with recipes that up my veg intake and decrease my meat consumption whilst;

a) Being filling and yummy – not making me feel as though there’s a big chunk of ‘protein’ missing from my plate.

b) Trying to make sure it’s not just a plate full of carbohydrate and sugar, because that is more often than not, the easy meat-free option.

I’m going to be posting a blog on Friday about why I’m trying to cut down my meat consumption, so I’ll leave that for then!

In the mean time, say hello to a dish that is quickly becoming my new ‘hearty’ favourite, AKA, the bowlful of healthy stodge that hits the sweet spot every time! I found an edamame fettuccini whilst I was in the UK and was in a real rush to eat, so I bought a jar of tomato pasta sauce and roasted the veg you’re seeing below.

I did not expect it to taste so damn good! The edamame fettuccini has a natural sweetness to it and dare I say, I’d choose it over a classic wheat fettuccini for taste factor every time.

Everything you see on the chopping board is all you need for this recipe … it’s simple, healthy, satiating and an all-round crowd pleaser!

It’s just a case of roasting the veg, (and I’ve created the recipe using just one pan to make your life even easier) and then boiling the pasta for a few minutes until mixing all the goodness together.

This recipe is also vegan-friendly, so I’m calling everyone to give it go, meat-eater or otherwise!

The roasted cherry tomatoes become your sweet, warm sauce, along with a drizzle of olive oil. You can of course do the same as me originally, and buy a jar of tomato sauce if you like your pasta super sauce rich … I just prefer to use natural cherry tomatoes to avoid the added sugar found in most pasta sauces.

It really is a little dream and so easy to make. I topped mine off with a tsp of both hummus and pesto but it’s also just as enjoyable on it’s own as my hubby will gladly advocate! (Which is saying quite a lot from a gym going, meat-eating man!)

Give me a shout below if you have any questions about the recipe and please let me know if you like it (or don’t – although I’m sure these will be few and far between ;).

Happy cooking!

    I like the sound of edamame fettuccine – where did you buy it from in England please?

      Hey Julie,

      I bought it from Holland & Barrett, have since seen it in quite a few their stores even in Dubai so think it’s a popular sell for them :)

      Let me know wha you think!
