It’s never too early to get your children hooked on healthy food. Give them a good dose of veggies with this plant-based pasts dish that is both nutritious and entertaining.

Ingredients

  •  1 box Fry’s Chickpea and Quinoa Falafels
  •  Spaghetti, pasta or veggie noodles of your choice – we used spinach and cauliflower noodles
  •  Vegan cheese slices for the monster’s body
  •  Radishes or mushrooms for teeth
  •  Avocado slices for monster horns
  •  A handful of green peas, cooked
  • For the Green Sauce
  •  2 ripe avocados, peeled and pitted
  •  3 cups of baby spinach
  •  10 almonds
  •  splash of lemon juice
  •  ½ cup avocado oil (or oil of your choice)
  •  Sea salt to taste
  •  2 tbsp vegan ‘Parmesan’ (see below)
  • For the Vegan ‘Parmesan’
  •  100 g raw cashews
  •  4 tbsp nutritional yeast
  •  ¼ tsp garlic salt

How to

To make the Green Sauce:

  • Blitz all of the ingredients together using a Nutribullet, jug or stick blender to form a smooth sauce. Add more oil if necessary to reach your preferred consistency. Taste and adjust seasoning with salt and lemon juice.

To make the Vegan ‘Parmesan’:

  • Blitz all of the ingredients together using a jug blender to form a fine powder. Store in an airtight container.

To Assemble your Monster:

  • Preheat the oven to 180 ºC.
  • Place the Fry’s Chickpea and Quinoa Falafels onto a baking tray and bake for 15-30 minutes until heated through.
  • Cook the spaghetti, pasta or veggie noodles according to packet instructions.
  • Use vegan or dairy-free cheese slices to create the body of your monster. Radishes or mushrooms can be used to cut out teeth.
  • If using spaghetti, dress with a coating of the green sauce.
  • On a serving plate, create the body of the monster using pasta or veggie noodles and add the Falafels as a mountain element. Fill in the base with peas.
  • Place all of the elements to create the monster image (body, teeth, eye and horns).
  • Serve with extra green sauce for dipping and extra vegan ‘Parmesan’ on the side.
