Vegan Caesar Pasta Salad

I know that red lentil pasta might sound a little strange to some, but it truly tastes spectacular. It’s a little nutty, not bean-y at all, and the texture is perfect. It doesn’t crumble or break apart like some gluten-free pastas

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Bring a large pot of water to boil. Add pasta and cook according to package instructions (mine were perfect at 7 minutes).
  • Drain and rinse quickly under cold water. Set aside until completely cooled.
  • While the pasta is cooling, prepare the dressing. Add all ingredients to a high-powered blender and blend on high until smooth and creamy. (I LOVE the twister jar from Blendtec for doing this!)
  • Once pasta is cooled, add chickpeas, tomatoes, romaine, capers, caper water, lemon zest and 1/2 cup dressing. Toss to until salad is evenly coated. Taste and season with salt and pepper. Add a dash of red pepper flakes if you want a little heat.
  • Store in the fridge until ready to serve. This is best served cold, so allowing it to cool for an hour or two is recommended!
