Green Veggie Spelt Spaghetti

Green Veggie Spelt Spaghetti

Last week I managed to find a real gem of a cookbook in a local charity shop, River Cottage Veg Everyday by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall for only £1.50. Yes, you read it right, only £1.50! An absolute bargain and in pristine condition too. Feeling a little inspired by Hugh’s book, I made this quick and easy veggie pasta dish using a mix of frozen broad beans, edamame soya beans and peas for my lunch one day. It was really tasty and it felt good to go meat free for a change.

For this recipe I’ve used spelt spaghetti which tastes very similar to wholewheat spaghetti and has twice the fibre of standard pasta, so I really recommend you try it.

    Hi Julie, I love the sound of this recipe. Where do you get your spelt spaghetti from – I can’t seem to locate it in Sainsbugs?

      Hi Alison, I buy my spelt spaghetti in Sainsbury’s. It’s usually stocked next to the regular spaghetti. Alternatively you can find it in Tesco’s or Holland and Barratt. Hope that helps.

    Would love to try spelt spaghetti. Where did you find them? I love finding cookbooks in charity shops you can get some real gems (and, actually, some good props too!)
