I had no plans to post this pasta recipe.
I have been getting a lot of feedback from all of you that you love the gluten-free, Paleo and vegan recipes I post, and this is none of the above. Experimenting with healthy ingredients and techniques is what makes this (cooking, blogging, recipe development, cookbook-writing) exciting and fun, but I am not any specific kind of “-tarian.” So this is a bit of a hodge-podge (much as I am). It is gluten-free, but not casein free, vegetarian, but not vegan, and super-lean and healthy, but not Paleo. Nevertheless, it is a recipe I make for myself (typically for lunch, occasionally for dinner) on a regular basis.
And I love it.
And it’s super-easy.
And it gives me me lots of power before or after workouts.
So I changed my mind.
I made this simple pasta with quinoa linguine; it is hands down the best gluten free pasta. It may sound a little strange if you’ve never come across it, but I assure you that is is delicious, and a fabulous addition to your pantry (it will be high on your love list because it is so good, and very similar to traditional pasta in taste and texture). If you have never tried quinoa pasta before, this simple, satisfying and nourishing dish is a great way to give it a shot.
