This beetroot pasta is fire-engine red: What a head-turner! Red beets are a power root that add their bright color to everything they touch. In less than 30 minutes you’ve got a pasta that backs up its good looks with real flavor. This pasta works as a lunch or a dinner. The beet’s earthy sweetness works perfectly with a salty sprinkle of tangy feta cheese.

Preparation

  • Cube the onion, garlic, and beetroot.
  • Heat the olive oil in a pan on medium. Add the onions and cook until they lose their color. Add the garlic and cook for 30 seconds.
  • Add the beetroot cubes and saute.
  • Deglaze the pan with the beetroot liquid and the vegetable broth. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • When the broth comes to a boil, add the Protein Pasta. Cook for 7 minutes until al dente in texture. If the mix gets too thick, add water.
  • Serve the beetroot pasta. Crumble the feta with your fingers. Sprinkle over the pasta. Garnish with basil leaves.
  • Enjoy!

Our Tip:

If you don't want your hands stained, wear food-safe gloves and use a glass cutting board when you peel and cut the beetroot!
