Before you start

Medium pan

First, make the sauce

  • Warm some olive oil in a pan and add the onion, chilli, garlic and coriander stalks
  • Stir everything around in the pan for 2-3 minutes to soften them slightly
  • Add the spices to the pan and stir them into the vegetables so they’re well covered
  • Add the peppers and stir well
  • Pour the plant-based milk in to the pan and warm it so very small bubbles are appearing at the edges of the pan

Then, add the pasta

  • Add the pasta to the pan and fold it into the rest of the ingredients, cook the pasta for 8 minutes so it’s almost ready (still al dente)
  • Add the Dairy Free Cheese and the Black Beans to pan and fold them into the pasta so they’re well mixed through

Serve and enjoy!

  • Sprinkle the coriander leaves into the pan, fold them into the pasta and serve
  • Place half a fanned Avocado on top of the pasta, sprinkle some on some chilli flakes and squeeze over some lime juice
