Marinate: 2 hrs. | Prep: 35 min.

Adapted recipe from food blog, The First Mess. A simple, beautiful and fresh flavoured pasta dish with a delicious vegan "cheesy" crumble made from roasted chickpeas, pine nuts and nutritional yeast!

Method

  1. Open the cherry tomato tins and drain out the tomato liquid. (You may store this useful liquid in a jar in the fridge for future cooking use)
  2. Transfer the tomatoes to a large bowl and toss with 3 tablespoons of olive oil, basil, salt and pepper. Cover and let sit for 2 hours.
  3. Preheat the oven to 200˚C.
  4. Drain and rinse the chickpeas well. Towel dry the chickpeas as thoroughly as possible before transferring them to a lined baking tray.
  5. Toss the chickpeas with the remaining olive oil (1 tsp) and season with salt and pepper. Roast in the oven for approximately 12 minutes, or until chickpeas are slightly crisp and browned.
  6. Remove the tray from the oven and add the pine nuts, before roasting for another 4-6 minutes or until the pine nuts are browned. Allow to cool completely.
  7. Combine the roasted chickpeas & pine nuts with the nutritional yeast, garlic powder, lemon zest and some salt in a food processor and pulse until you have a crumbly texture. Set aside.
  8. Cook the pasta with a pinch of salt in a large pot of boiling water for 5-7 minutes. Drain.
  9. Transfer the cooked pasta to the bowl of tomatoes and toss until well combined and coated.
  10. Top the pasta with the cheesy chickpea crumble mixture, extra sliced basil and chilli (if desired).
  11. Serve immediately and enjoy!
