  • Kale (250g)

  • Woodland mushrooms (250g) (chopped)

  • Closed cup mushrooms (100g) (chopped)

  • Whole grain pasta (250g – add more/ less as you want)

  • Creme fraiche (150ml)

  • Pancetta (150g)

  • Parmesan (around a handful but up to you how much/little you want)

  • Garlic (I use a teaspoon of so in granule form)

  • Salt + Pepper

  • Roasted sprouts:
  • Brussel sprouts (330g) (chopped)

Directions

  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees (fan).
  • Bring water to a boil.
  • Add the sprouts, oil, garlic and s+p to a tray and put in the oven – leave for time it takes to cook the rest (20-30mins).
  • Once water is boiling add the pasta.
  • Cook all the pancetta in a frying pan. Once cooked, remove it but leave the oil in.
  • Add the chopped mushrooms, garlic, s+p to the pan.
  • Put the falafels in the oven.

  • Mix in some Parmesan and 2/3 of the pancetta.
  • Take the sprouts out and add the remaining pancetta, walnuts and nutritional yeast.
  • Take the falafels out and SERVE!
