The perfect match of fresh mango and crunchy asparagus
When you think of pasta salad, do you think of a high-calorie plate full of pasta, lots of bacon, more meat sausage and a few alibi pickles that give it at least a little green color? For us, pasta salad means a colorful story: Green peas, fresh mango, grilled asparagus and crunchy beets turn protein pasta into a balanced and wholesome salad. We give our vegan pasta salad a freshness kick with an orange and beetroot dressing. Whether at home in the garden, as a lunch box for the office or as a souvenir at the next picnic, our protein pasta salad is always a real highlight!
Put on a small saucepan with water.
30 g Baby beets
Meanwhile, cut the mixed baby beets and radishes into wafer-thin slices (a peeler can also be used for this).
Cut the onions into fine rings.
Peel the mango and cut into fine strips.
When the water boils, add salt and cook the protein pasta for 7 minutes until al dente. The peas can be thawed in the pasta pot for the last 2 minutes. Then pour everything off with the help of a sieve.
1 TL Rapeseed oil, 50 g asparagus
Heat the rapeseed oil in a small pan. Cut the ends of the green asparagus. Then cut the asparagus in half.
Put the asparagus in the pan, season with a little salt and pepper and fry it for approx. 8 minutes until it takes on a light brownish color.
2 THE Beetroot juice, 2 THE Orange juice, 1 THE Lemon juice, 1 TL Maple syrup, Salt pepper
Put all the ingredients for the dressing in a bowl and stir well. Add either more or less orange or beetroot juice, depending on the consistency you want.
Now the pasta salad can be put together: Serve protein pasta, beets, radishes, peas, asparagus and mango in a bowl.
Pour the salad dressing over the pasta salad. Garnish with roasted walnuts and fresh parsley if you like.

Our tip: It doesn’t always have to be pasta salad
Our protein pasta turns any pasta salad into a real protein bomb. But if you don’t have any protein pasta at home, you can of course choose another source of carbohydrates. How about, for example, spiced lentils, whole grain rice or our vegan and gluten-free protein bread as a side dish.
