Vegan summer lunch (pasta and vegetables)

Vegan summer lunch is perfect for all those nice warm days when we don’t want to spend too much time in the kitchen. Seasonal vegetables are used, so the recipe is very simple and can easily be adapted to exactly what you have in the fridge.

For this vegan summer lunch , you need pasta of any kind and some seasonal vegetables along with olives. I chose zucchini, tomatoes and olives with the addition of beans. Instead of beans, you can add chickpeas or lentils, and you can also make a dish without legumes.

The recipe is really simple so I have nothing to add except – enjoy cooking and this summer lunch.

  • about 200 g of paste
  • 1 zucchini
  • a few cherry tomatoes
