Often, during the week, we crave a light, nourishing and quickly prepared meal for lunch. Pasta dishes are perfect! Al dente in just a few minutes with little effort involved, are Penne, Fusilli & Co. the ideal solution. They can be enjoyed hot with sauces or cold as a salad. One pot of pasta = several different meals! And nothing gets thrown away…
Our vegan protein pasta is made in Switzerland with durum wheat flour, mung bean, Golden Chlorella and water and tastes just like the pasta you know and love! It contains 20% plant protein and is rich in zinc, phosphorus, iron, vitamin B1 and B2.
At the moment, we offer two shapes- Penne and Fusilli – and we are always working on perfecting several other types. You can leave us a comment with your preferred pasta here. We’ll let you know when it becomes available!
Below is a simple recipe for a red pesto sauce that accompanies our pasta perfectly:
- 1⁄2 cup sun-dried tomatoes, drained and chopped
- 3 cups fresh basil leaves (loosely packed)
- 3-4 cloves fresh garlic
- 1⁄2 teaspoon Alver Vegan Protein
- 1⁄2 cup pine nuts or 1⁄2 cup walnuts
- 1⁄2 cup olive oil
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- black pepper
In a food processor, blend the tomatoes, basil and garlic. Then add Alver Vegan Protein powder, nuts and 1/4 cup olive oil; blend well. Then add the remaining 1/4 cup olive oil, salt and pepper; blend well again. Store in the fridge, or separate evenly in ice cube containers and freeze. Use in pasta dishes.
Did you know?
All types of Alver Vegan Protein have a different plant source and function!
Golden Chlorella, microalgae, 63% protein: 100% natural and packed with nutrients – potassium, magnesium, zinc and vitamin B – it has immune system boosting properties, supports brain function, eye and skin health, and work as a natural detox by eliminating heavy metals and toxins from the body. Chlorella is also known to promote weight loss and lower blood sugar/cholesterol.
Golden Pea, organic peas, 80% protein: helps you feel stronger. The iron it contains reduces tiredness, the Magnesium supports muscle recovery. The amino acid profile of our Golden Pea protein is particularly well balanced. Mixed to a meal, it makes you feel fuller for longer and helps you stay in shape. It is also ideal as a protein complement after training.
Golden Bean, mung bean, 85% protein: increases muscle strength. Although the health benefits of a plant-based diet are well documented, there is still concern that nutrient intake, including protein, may be reduced and cause deficiencies in the long-term. A recent study showed that mung bean protein significantly improves muscle strength in healthy adults who eat plant-based and are underactive. The connection between plant protein supplements and higher strength despite the lack of physical exercise is a new finding.
