Method

Cook the pasta al’ dente.

 

Next, heat a frying pan and add the almond milk and hummus, stirring until it reaches a creamy consistency. 

 

Add the cashews, massaman curry paste, chopped olives, cherry tomatoes and pesto, and stir through.

 

Add the hondashi, check the flavour and season with salt and pepper if necessary. 

 

Add the pasta to the sauce and stir through, adjusting with some additional almond milk if required. Do not cook for too long, as you will over-cook the pasta.

 

Remove from heat, and stir through the rocket leaves.

 

Serve into pasta bowls and garnish with chopped nori seaweed and fresh basil.
