 The Thought Process Behind The Dish

Needing a satisfyingly high protein post workout plant powered meal, when I’m not too worries about calories and what to support some great gains in muscle and strength.

Headsup: This is a heavyweight portion calorie wise, so if you’re watching the calories you could make this into 2 smaller size portions for two people and still have a decent about of protein and carbohydrates, have a portion of fruit or some soy yoghurt as a desert.

Instructions

  1.  Put the soya chunks into a bowl with a teaspoon of dried basil and a quarter of the garlic and fill with hot water, elave for 5 minutes with a lid on.
  2. Saute the rest of the garlic and the broccoli with salt and pepper and a few drops of hot water, put a lid on and let the broccoli steam for a minute or so.
  3. Add the tomatoes and 1 tbl of red wine vinegar.
  4. Drain the soya chunks into a sieve and add everything including the basil and garlic into the pan.
  5. Simmer everything for about 10 minutes to absorb the flavours.
  6. Cook the pasta and then toss with the sauce.
  7. Serve and grate a small helping of vegan cheese onto the top.
