Vegan Chickpea & Lemon Spaghetti

Vegan Chickpea & Lemon Spaghetti

It’s been years since I made my infamous Lemon Pepper Spaghetti. That used to be a staple for my oldest son when he was younger. The only thing is I used to make it with shrimps. Now that’s not happening ever again so I decided to change it up a little, ok actually a lot. This recipe is nothing like I used to make it except I used lemons, lemon juice and zest and spaghetti. I will definitely be making the original recipe sometime soon, so watch for it. That recipe was my go to quick spaghetti meal but if you want a similar dish with some added protein, this is the perfect pasta dish!


Cook pasta according to instructions on the package. Drain and rinse, then set aside.

In a hot skillet on medium-high add in the oil with shallots, chickpeas, 1 teaspoon each of garlic & onion powder, paprika, thyme & basil. Let the chickpeas cook for 5 minutes.

Add cooked spaghetti with the vegetable stock, mustard and the remaining spices and herbs. Don’t add in the spinach just yet. Let it cook another 5 minutes to merry the flavors and warm the pasta.

I didn’t add it in {because, I forgot}. Now you would add in the fresh spinach mix to wilt it from the heat. Divide into individual portions then serve.
