This recipe came from me not knowing what to make from dinner and not wanting to put any time or effort into the process. I looked in the fridge, grabbed a bunch of leftovers and came out with this 15-minute pasta. These are loose measurements because when I’m cooking for fun, I just add things in, so feel free to make it your own!

Servings 1 portion


  • 1 handful brown rice pasta
  • 2 tbsp olive oil from tomato confit
  • 5-10 cherry tomatoes
  • 1 handful arugula
  • 3 falafels crumbled
  • 1 avocado diced
  • Sea salt and basil to taste


  • Cook the pasta according to the packaging instructions.
  • While the pasta is cook, cut the cherry tomatoes in half.
  • Once the pasta is cooked, drain it, add the olive oil, and return it to medium-high heat.
  • Add the cherry tomatoes, the falafels and the arugula and cook for a couple of minutes, until the arugula wilts.
  • Take from the heat, add the avocado and finish with the salt and basil.


  • I used the leftover olive oil from a tomato confit recipe I made. Since it was already seasoned, you add all the garlic, herbs and tomato flavour to your pasta.
  • This recipe will work well with any pasta.
  • Use fresh basil for a brighter flavour.
