Linzenpasta met tomatensaus

Lentil pasta with tomato sauce

More protein-rich than this pasta, you'll hardly find any plant-based dishes. A perfect dinner after a good workout or when you want to boost your protein intake, just like when consuming our vegan Protein Shake. Tip: Also delicious with plant-based meatballs instead of tempeh.

  • 50 ml soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp ketjap
  • 2 tsp paprika powder
  • 200 g tempeh, diced
  • 1 tbsp olive oil (10 g), for frying

  • 200 g mushrooms or other mushrooms of your choice
  • 2 tbsp sun-dried tomatoes
  • 1/2 can tomatoes (400 g)
  • Fresh basil, for garnish
  • Coarse sea salt

  2. Peel and chop the onion. Heat half of the olive oil in a pan and sauté the onion until translucent over medium-high heat for about 3 minutes;
