I just love experimenting with different ingredients to see how we can substitute meat and up our protein intake, especially on a gym day. This dish is so easy to make and very high in protein and fiber!
Obviously you can substitute this high protein spaghetti for wholemeal spaghetti, but if you really want that protein kick then get to the health food store and get this amazing high protein, high fiber spaghetti! A serving of this spaghetti has a whopping 41g of protein.
makes: 4-5 servings
prep time: 5 min
cook time: 10 min
total time: 15 min
- 2/3 packet (150g, dry) edamame or black bean spaghetti
- 100g (dry) organic TVP mince (really opt for the organic version here as it is important to have the TVP made from non GMO, organic soy beans)
- 4 cups of (homemade) pasta sauce
- 1 tbsp nutritional yeast
- Optional: add some fresh basil, rocket salad, pine nuts, cherry tomatoes…
Boil water in a pot.
Add the sauce to a pot and let it simmer over low heat. After 5 minutes, add the TVP mince and stir well.
Serve immediately with some nutritional yeast (as a parmasan substitute) and enjoy!

I have been looking for great, nutritious and high-protein vegan ‘meatballs’ for a while now. Falafels are a great option, but these balls really are perfect for a sandwich or pasta. My boyfriend even went for seconds! makes: 35 ‘meatballs’ prep time: 10 min cook time: 50 min total […]
Yes! Finally a great vegan spaghetti with lots of protein, fiber and low fat. And above all, this one is VERY quick and easy if you have prepared your ‘meatballs’ beforehand. You can substitute the edamame spaghetti for any other bean spaghetti, or opt for wholemeal/wholegrain spaghetti in stead of the good ol’ wheat spaghetti.
makes: 1 serving
prep time: 3 min
cook time: 7 min
total time: 10 min
- 3 mushroom and white bean ‘meatballs’
- 50g of edamame spaghetti, or any other spaghetti
- 3/4 to 1 cup of (homemade) vegie pasta sauce
- Handful of spinach, rocket or kale
- Tbsp capers
- Tsp nutritional yeast (also called savoury yeast)
Heat the ‘meatballs’ with the sauce in a pot over medium-low heat or in a microwave.
In the meanwhile, cook the pasta. When done cooking, drain and rinse and put in a bowl. Add the ‘meatballs’ and sauce to the bowl.
Tear apart some greens, like rocket or spinach. Sprinkle with some capers and nutritional yeast and buon appetito! If you like this dish vegetarian, just use some Parmesan cheese in stead of the nutritional yeast.
These sandwiches are great for lunch – my boyfriend even went for seconds! Make sure to prepare the meatballs first. makes: 1 sandwich prep time: 5 min cook time: 3 min total time: 7 min INGREDIENTS: 4 mushroom and white bean ‘meatballs’ 1 wholemeal sandwich roll 2 tbsp (homemade) vegie pasta […]
