Vegan Chorizo and Chickpea Pasta is a protein packed vegan pasta recipe.
This Vegan Chorizo and Chickpea Pasta is one of my favorite pantry staple recipes. This pasta recipe is perfect for anyone who shops mainly at Trader Joe’s. All of the ingredients needed for the recipe can be purchased at Trader Joe’s.
I love keeping a package or two of soy chorizo on hand. My favorite store bought vegan chorizo is definitely the soy chorizo from Trader Joe’s. It is packed with flavor, and a crowd pleaser among vegan and carnivores.
This pasta recipe is full of plant-based protein. For added plant-based protein, I added chickpeas with the chorizo. The chickpeas help to bulk up the pasta sauce.
The chorizo and chickpeas simmer in a delicious red wine and tomato sauce. The red wine adds a really nice depth of flavor to the sauce.
The vegan chorizo gives the pasta a spicy kick. The pasta sauce can be made ahead of time and simply reheated when you are ready to make the pasta.
For a gluten-free option, just make sure that your vegan chorizo is gluten-free and use gluten-free pasta. For this recipe, I used Banza Chickpea Pasta. The Banza pasta is one of my favorite gluten-free pastas on the market.
This Vegan Chorizo and Chickpea Pasta is a satisfying plant-based entree that the whole family will like!
