Alkaline Diet Recipe #111: Spelt Pasta with Broccoli and Almonds

Article by ross

It is nice to have an alkaline pasta dish for a change, as this recipe contains gluten-free pasta, which is fine to be included into an alkaline based diet, as long as it’s in moderation.

The other main ingredients are broccoli and almonds, which are both highly alkaline and tasty too!

This dish is also really easy and quick to prepare, which makes this another great recipe to cook throughout the week when there is limited time to spend in the kitchen.

Broccoli is high in vitamin C and dietary fiber. It also contains multiple nutrients with potent anti-cancer properties. Almonds contain high levels of manganese, Vitamin E and magnesium.

GF Pasta with Broccoli and Almonds

Serves 4

Ingredients

800g Broccoli
250g GF Pasta
150g Almond flakes
2 Garlic cloves, cut into fine pieces
2 tbsp avocado
Himalayan Crystal Salt or Celtic Sea Salt
Freshly ground black pepper

Instructions

Bring a large pot with water to boil. Cook the pasta until tender, but make sure they are still ‘al dente’. Wash and drain the broccoli and cut the florets into small pieces. VERY gently heat the avo oil in a large frying pan and add the garlic pieces. Quickly warm them, but make sure they do not become too golden, as they will taste bitter otherwise. Add the broccoli and stir through with the garlic.

Add a little bit of water and cook until the broccoli becomes tender.

In the meantime roast the almond flakes in a different frying pan at medium heat without adding any oil. As soon as the broccoli is tender stir in the pasta. Mix everything well.

Add the almond flakes and season to taste with salt and pepper.

Enjoy!

    What do you think of quinoa pasta by Ancient Harvest? It is gluten-free and has 3 or 4 grams of fiber I believe.

      Hey Ela

      If you stick with the 80/20 you can always make some wholemeal or spelt pasta the 20% of the dish. It’s still alkaline and still delicious!

      Have you seen my alkaline recipe book?
