Sweet Potato Rigatoni (With Hidden Vegetables)
Meal: Side or Entree
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 10-15 minutes
2 cups soy milk, unsweetened
1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
3 tbs hemp seeds
1/2 cup raw cashews
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
1 scoop Purely Inspired organic, unflavored greens powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp himalayan salt
1/4-1/2 tsp black pepper
2 cups sweet potato, peeled and cubed (you could also use butternut squash or pumpkin)
1 pound of rigatoni, or pasta of your choice
First, add your sweet potato to a pot and add just enough water to cover. Boil for 5-7 minutes, or until fork tender. Strain into a colander and then combine into a blender with remaining ingredients. Blend for one minute, or until smooth. Cook your pasta according to package instructions and stir in your sauce. This sauce will yield approximately five cups. Reserve 1/2-1 cup of pasta water just in case you need to use it to thin out your sauce.
I can personally handle a strong green flavor, but what I love about Purely Inspired’s organic and unflavored greens powder is that it’s extremely mild- and sometimes I just prefer it that way. It’s perfect for sneaking greens into any meal for kids or if you’re new to healthy eating. I promise- you’ll never know it’s in there. Get yours now at purelyinspired.com.
