Roasted veggie and chickpea pasta night 🍝 This is one of my favorite easy go-to dishes to make and it is SO satisfying. Also, the green glob continues to top all my food 🙆 . Roasted veg: spray broccoli & cauliflower florets with @chosenfoods avocado oil on baking sheet. Season with garlic powder, @traderjoeslist 21 seasoning salute and turmeric. Separately, toss cubed organic extra firm tofu with oil, garlic powder and nutritional yeast and add to sheet. BROIL in oven for 12-15 minutes, tossing towards the end Combine with @eatbanza shelled chickpea pasta my all time FAV, crumbled feta and a big dollop of cilantro avocado sauce (1.5 cup fresh cilantro + 1/4 cup olive oil + 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar + 1 large avocado + 2 small limes, juiced + 1 tbsp minced garlic + sea salt/ground pepper to taste (about 1/4 tsp each) + 2 tbsp water –> blend in food processor) ✨
