This recipe is brought to us by Casey at @themindfulhapa!
Ingredients
  • 1 box Banza Shells
  • 3 Tbsp olive oil, divided
  • ½ sweet onion, finely chopped
  • 5 large carrots, peeled & chopped in rounds
  • 1 ¼ cups green beans, chopped in thin rounds (~1 cm thick)
  • 1 ¼ cups asparagus, chopped in thin rounds (~1 cm thick)
  • 4 - 6oz vegan cream cheese
  • 4 tbsp vegan butter
  • Salt & pepper, to taste
Instructions
  1. Heat 1.5 Tbsp of olive oil on medium heat in a saute pan/cast iron skillet. Add chopped onion and cook for 3-5 minutes, or until onions just start to brown.
  2. Add carrot rounds and cook for an additional 3-5 minutes, until carrots start to brown. Set aside carrot/onion mixture in a small bowl.
  3. Add an additional 1.5 Tbsp of olive oil to same pan, along with chopped green beans and asparagus rounds. Cook for 1-2 minutes, or until preferred texture is reached (1-2 minutes ensures vegetables still have a little crunch!) and set aside with the onion/carrot mixture.
  4. Cook Banza shells according to package instructions.
  5. After draining pasta, add back into the large saucepan you used to cook pasta.
  6. While pasta is still warm, add vegan butter/cream cheese and stir until combined. Add additional cream cheese for extra creaminess!
  7. Once combined, stir in cooked vegetables and add salt + pepper to taste. Serve immediately and enjoy!
