16 Dec

A complete and “proteinful” meal. The perfect recipe for a cold December evening.

You will need:

  • 60gr dry or tinned beans
  • 1tbsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 30gr pasta (small-sized works better)
  • Celery
  • Onion
  • Carrot
  • Salt
  • Olive oil
  • Parmesan cheese


1.5 hours (if using dry beans/legumes, you will need to put them in water the night before, and keep them soaking for at least 8 hours).


If using dry beans/legumes, remember to soak them in water with 1tbsp of bicarbonate of soda the night before. If using tinned legumes, wash them before cooking, and start straigh-away.

In a pan, boil the beans and then add the diced celery, onion and carrot with a pinch of salt. Cook for at least 90 minutes if using dry beans; 45 minutes if using tinned beans. In parallel, cook 30gr of pasta in a small pan and, when ready, add 120gr of beans, which by now will be soft and creamy. Add a tbsp of olive oil and a dust of parmesan cheese, and serve.

You might want to use a different pulse, or different legumes together, such as, for example, a mix of chickpeas, borlotti, black eye peas, and cannellini beans.

Enjoy your meal! And book an appointment with me for more recipes and advice.
