For a while now I’ve wanted to do a shout out post for one of my favourite YouTubers, Lisa Lorles. She is a vegan nutrition student at UBC and makes beautiful videos with a ton of delicious recipes.
This particular recipe stuck out for me because I have never seen or thought of the combination of lemon and garlic, especially on pasta. In her video, Lisa talks about how she is always asked for the recipe because of how often she eats this dish and how good it is. I’ll link her video here so you can check it out, and so you can also take a look at all of her other beautiful, mouthwatering YouTube videos!
I was very surprised by how much I enjoyed this flavour combination, especially with the added shredded cheese in the mix. This is definitely a quick and easy staple, and is perfect to pair with a mixed green salad. I also loved the combination with the buckwheat soba noodles, since they have more minerals, B vitamins, fibre and flavour than your typical white pasta. If you have more soba noodles on hand from this recipe, try making this Soba Noodle Soup for your next meal prep.
Give this recipe a try! It’s delicious hot or cold, vegan or vegetarian, on its own or part of a full meal.

What shape and flavour of noodles are your favourite? I personally love green spinach noodles because they’re full of flavour and beautiful colour, and the radar shapes are my favourite because they pick up all of their sauce and they’re so much fun to eat. I have yet to find green radar noodles though, so soba noodles are my close second. Also, don’t forget to follow me on Instagram @cookbooksandcardigans for more recipe inspiration. Have fun!
