healthy vegan pasta salad

This healthy vegan pasta salad is made with carrots, edamame, onion, and kale which make it a nutritious and balanced meal.

These kinds of meals are just so easy and quick to make but are still delicious and healthy for your body.

Every time I cook pasta, I go for whole wheat since it is way more nutritious: lower in calories and carbs, higher in fiber, protein and vitamins. But obviously, this recipe works with any type of pasta.

Kale and carrots are bringing vitamins and antioxidants, edamame further protein, and the dressing is there to bring you a healthy amount of fats.

Ingredients

For 2-3 servings

  • 150g pasta of your choice
  • 2 carrots
  • 80g edamame
  • 1 small onion
  • 60g kale (stems removed)

Dressing

  • A few parsley leaves
  • Salt and pepper

Instructions

Step 1

Start by cooking your pasta according to the package instructions.

Step 2

Chop the carrots, onion and kale finely.

Tip: For the carrots, I like to use a vegetable peeler to make thin slices.

Step 3

Prepare the dressing by adding all the ingredients. Whisk until everything is mixed together and adjust seasoning if necessary.

Step 4

Once cooked, drain the pasta and add it into a big bowl. Add all chopped ingredients along with the edamame. Add dressing and eat the salad right away or keep in your fridge for later.

Notes and variations

  • Make sure to add the dressing just before you eat your salad to prevent the ingredients to soften

  • If you don’t like/have kale, you can replace it with spinach or any other leafy green
