  • 2 Tbsp table salt (for boiling pasta)
  • 1 lb fresh asparagus, cut into 1 ½ inch pieces
  • 1 Tbsp avocado oil
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp pepper

A smooth and delicious, oh so garlicky Chickapea pasta dish. This super simple meal is perfect for a busy evening and so straightforward, anyone can make it. It is a vegan, gluten-free, and nut-free dish that is full of flavour and budget friendly.


    Garlic Butter:

    1. Add the softened butter to a small bowl
    2. Mix in all remaining garlic butter ingredients
    3. Set in refrigerator until ready to use in the recipe

     Pasta Instructions:

    1. Preheat the oven to 425°F
    2. Add the asparagus pieces to a medium bowl
    3. Pour avocado oil over the asparagus and sprinkle with a ¼ tsp salt and 1/8 tsp ground black pepper
    4. Mix the asparagus well to coat
    5. Transfer the asparagus to a lined baking tray and spread out as much as possible
    6. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until tender
    7. Meanwhile, prepare Chickapea spirals to package specifications (heat 16 cups of water in a large pot over high heat until boiling. Add pasta and 2 Tbsp of salt to the water, decrease the heat to maintain a gentle boil. Stir and cook the pasta for 7 minutes)
    8. Dain the pasta and rinse with warm water
    9. Transfer the pasta into the large bowl
    10. Toss the pasta with 2 Tbsp of garlic butter, adding more to taste until desired flavour is achieved
    11. When the asparagus is done roasting, remove it from the oven and mix it into the pasta
    12. Plate the portions of the pasta and top with a squeeze or fresh lemon, a pinch of paprika and finishing salt to taste
    13. Enjoy!

     Recipe Notes:

    • Coating the freshly cooked noodles with the garlic butter before adding the asparagus will help to ensure a more flavourful meal
    • This meal can be served warm or at room temperature
    • This recipe can be easily doubled or tripled for larger groups
    • Original Earth Balance butter spread was used as the vegan butter in this recipe

    How to
    Cook and
    Not Guess

    1. Boil 10 cups of salted water.
    2. Add your pasta to the boiling water.
    3. Stir a few stirs so they don’t stick together.
    4. Maintain a steady boil for 5-8 minutes or until you reach your desired level of doneness.
    5. Drain, rinse and serve with your favourite sauce.
    6. Then think, “wow, I didn’t really have to guess while I cooked, thanks Chickapea.”
