Embracing a diet that nourishes both body and soul is the cornerstone of holistic wellness. To support your journey, I’m thrilled to share a new recipe that ticks all the boxes – the Gluten-Free Noodle & Veggie Korma!
I was inspired to create this dish from my time spent in India. India holds a special place in my heart as I spent many months there. I even took a few cooking classes!
Korma is a dish traditionally originating in the Indian subcontinent that is bursting with flavor and is often made with animal products. This is my vegan spin on this long standing dish.
Packed with plant-based protein and a rich array of spices, providing a harmonious balance for holistic health, including brain, heart, and hormonal well-being. Plus, it’s a weeknight favorite in my household, because it’s so easy to prepare.
Nutrient-Rich Ingredients: From antioxidant-rich spices to fiber-loaded veggies, this dish packs a healthy punch.
Plant-Based Protein: Lentil or chickpea linguine forms the heart of this dish, providing a robust and plant-based protein source that satisfies your taste buds and helps you recover after a long day of work.
Easy to Make: With just one pot and minimal prep work, this recipe is as straightforward as it is tasty.
The Nutritional Power of Cashews
These delightful nuts are incredible! Not only do they bring a creamy texture and rich taste to dishes, but they also offer a plethora of health benefits. Packed with healthy fats and protein, they’re a valuable inclusion for vegetarians and vegans. They also pack vitamins and minerals like magnesium and phosphorus, vital for bone health and energy production.
Just like chickpeas, cashews are a brilliant source of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, contributing to heart health, reducing inflammation, and enhancing brain function.
Infusing Flavor and Health with Spice
The spices in this recipe aren’t just for flavor; they bring a wealth of health-boosting properties to the table. Take turmeric and cinnamon, for instance, celebrated for their anti-inflammatory prowess. They not only add a tantalizing aroma but also contribute to a harmonious culinary experience!
My Gluten-Free Noodle & Veggie Korma is a wonderful ensemble of healthful ingredients, brimming with essential nutrients, healthy fats, protein, and fiber. It’s a fabulous choice for any meal, be it a quiet dinner at home or a fun gathering with loved ones.

Microgreens for a refreshing raw element (optional)
To get started, heat a large pot with water and cook the lentil or chickpea pasta according to the directions. When done, be sure to drain and set aside.
Meanwhile, blend the cashews and coconut milk until thoroughly blended. Set aside.
In another large pot, heat the coconut oil to medium-high heat. Saute all the veggies for a few minutes, then lower the heat to low. Add in the tomato paste, and stir in the linguine and the cashew-coconut milk mixture until well mixed.
Turn off the heat and squeeze in the lemon (optional). Season with sea salt and black pepper to taste, and stir again.
Serve into bowls fresh and top with microgreens. Enjoy!
This delightful pairing not only elevates the taste but also boosts the nutritional value of your meal. It's a beloved tradition in my family, and I'm excited to share it with you!
