  • 1-2 spring onions or 1/2 yellow onion, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • 500g tomato sauce (I used a jar of store bought organic 100% tomato sauce)
  • 1 can red kidney beans, drained and rinsed (or 240g cooked)
  • 3-4 servings brown rice spaghetti

  • 2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp tomato powder (optional)
  • 3 tbsp pine nuts

Instructions

  1. Wash the vegetables and peel the zucchinis if not organic.
  2. Dice them and set aside.
  3. Heat a pan over medium-high heat and add the coconut oil.
  4. Add the garlic and onion and sautee for 1-3 minutes until it becomes glossy and fragrant.
  5. Add the bell peppers, the seasoning (except salt and pepper), and cover with a lid.
  6. Cook for 5-6 minutes.
  7. Add the zucchini and stir to combine.
  8. Cover with the lid and cook for another 10 minutes, while stirring every few minutes.
  9. Meanwhile bring water for the spaghetti to boil and cook according to the package instruction.
  10. Add the tomato sauce and the beans to the vegetables, stir, and simmer for 5 more minutes.
  11. Add the spaghetti and toss with two wooden spoons until well incorporated.
  12. Take off the heat and keep covered with the lid.
  13. Heat a small pan over high heat and toast the pine nuts for a few minutes.
  14. Keep an eye on them and stir them regularly as they burn very easily!
  15. When golden brown, take off the heat.
  16. Plate the pasta and sprinkle the pine nuts on top.
  17. Enjoy!
