Soba noodles tomato spaghetti with lentils

Soba noodles tomato spaghetti with lentils

For a lot of people giving up pasta can be though. Lately I have been making this soba noodles spaghetti a couple of times and didn’t even think about sharing it with you. I really don’t know why, because this simple spaghetti meal is amazing. It is gluten free because of the soba noodles. Soba noodles are basically buckwheat noodles, and we all know that’s not a wheat…..Hallelujah! And why should we use soba noodles only for Asian dishes? There are no rules in the kitchen. Can I get another hallelujah? Lentils are one of my favorite legumes and if you ask me, one of the healthiest and loaded with proteins.

This soba noodles tomato spaghetti recipe tastes like an old traditional Italian recipe. You will not miss any meat, because of the lentils. And cheese? No worries, I got you covered on that one with nutritional yeast.

Soba noodles tomato spaghetti with lentils

I always buy pure organic tomato puree in a glass jar. You might remember, I’m quit strict on that as you can read here where I had the balls to tell Chrissy Teigen she was preparing her tomato soup the wrong way…oh well. I just believe that health is our first and only wealth. Tomato puree is very easy to find in little glass jars, so that shouldn’t be a problem. Of course you can buy readymade tomato sauce, but I can tell you that those are loaded with sugars. This tomato sauce is very easy to make, so again another problem solved.

Pasta lovers, let’s dig in! And don’t forget to share your recipe with me on social media with #thegreencreator
