Lentil and Rice Twists with Broccoli

Lentil and Rice Twists with Broccoli (gluten free pasta)

Serves 2-3

  • 250g L’Abruzzese lentil and rice twists
  • 1/3 cup currants soaked in 1/3 cup verjuice (or white wine) while you prepare the rest
  • 1/3 cup sliced almonds
  • 1 large head of broccoli, cut into florets
  • 1/2 – 1 onion roughly chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • Grated cheese such as parmesan


Saute onions + garlic gently in Patlin Gardens Olive Oil until translucent.

Cook broccoli in boiling water 5 minutes or less, until bright green but still a little crunchy then drain.

Meanwhile, cook pasta 7 – 9 minutes. Drain.

Add broccoli to the onion pan; toss & heat through

Stir in currants & toasted almonds with the soaking liquid.

Stir through a chopped, raw tomato or 2.

Pile these ingredients on top of the cooked pasta (as per cooking time on pasta packet). Drizzle with a little more olive oil and serve with shaved or grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese.
