Vegan Greek pasta salad: a simple and refreshing summer meal! I have been making a big batch and eating it warm for dinner and cold the next day for lunch! Plus extra pesto for pizza, wraps and more pasta!
To make this recipe I used Chickapea pasta. This is one of my favourite brands as it is made with just chickpeas and lentils. It is such an easy way to eat legumes especially in the summer when you don’t feel like cooking!
Extra pesto? Try: Lentil Crust Pizza or Pesto Zoodles.
This recipe uses tofu feta, this should be prepped in the morning or the night before.
