  • 1/2 lb. pasta of choice

  • 2 cups packed broccoli florets, bite-sized pieces

  • 1 1/4 cups frozen peas

  • 1/2 cup vegetable broth

  • 1 pint cherry or grape tomatoes

  • 1/3 cup roasted red peppers sliced or chopped

  • 1/3 cup olives coarsely chopped

  • 1/4 cup vegan parmesan cheese

  • 1 avocado diced

  • lemon wedges for serving

  • red chili flakes for serving

  • Dressing:

    • 1 tbsp chives

    • 2 tsp dried basil

    • 1 tsp dried parsley

    • 1 tsp kosher salt

    • 1/2 tsp pepper

    • 1 tsp garlic powder

    • 1 tbsp dijon mustard

    • 2 tsp white wine vinegar

    • Juice of 1 1/2 lemons

    • 1 tsp agave nectar

    • 1/4 cup olive oil

    • Instructions

      Cook the pasta until al dente according to package guidelines in salted water, then drain.

      Meanwhile, in a large pan, combine the broccoli and peas with the vegetable broth. Cover and heat to a low simmer for 3 to 4 minutes, then remove cover and cook for a few minutes more to allow liquid to evaporate. Drain any remaining liquid from the broccoli, which should be crisp-tender.

      Chop the tomatoes, peppers, and olives while they’re cooking. When the broccoli and peas are done, toss them in with them. Combine the dressing, cooked pasta, and parmesan cheese in a pan and stir to combine. Stir well and season to taste.

      Serve with avocado and lemon wedges on top.
