I am very excited to have teamed up with Meatless Farm during World Meat Free Week as part of their campaign aimed at encouraging UK households to switch to one more plant-based meal per week in order to benefit the planet.
According to new scientific data analysed by environmental scientist Joseph Poore, if everyone in the UK switched just one more red meat meal to a plant-based meal per week, it would cut the UK’s greenhouse gas emissions by 50 million tonnes – the equivalent of taking 16 million cars off the road – resulting in up to an 8.4 percent reduction in the UK’s total carbon emissions.
This healthy, easy option is a delicious way to enjoy plant-based protein!
Ingredients (serves 2)
- 4 @meatlessfarm sausages
- 160g uncooked pasta (I used green pea fusilli)
- 50g grated cheese (vegan)
- 160g green peas
- 160g broccoli
- 4 tbsp veggie green pesto
- 1/2 red chilli
- Olive oil
Fry the sausages in olive oil over a medium heat for 8-10 minutes, turning them often until cooked. You can add the green veggies into this pan too and fry for a few extra minutes. Boil the pasta for 10 minutes until soft, then drain and rinse. Split the cooked pasta between 2 bowls and add 2 tbsp of the pesto to each bowl and stir in well. Cut the sausages into chunks and split with the veg across the two bowls. Top both with grated cheese and some chilli (if you like it hot!) and ENJOY.⠀⠀⠀
