Here are a few recipes that I have created using Vi Vien's homemade vegetable pasta.

Menu #1: ABC Soup with Homemade Pasta

(Serves 2)

1/2 cup antibiotics-free chicken fillet
2 large garlic pips, lightly smashed
1/2-inch ginger, smashed
1 medium organic potato, cut into cubes
1 medium red onion, cut into chunks
1 slice small pumpkin, cut into chunks
2 organic long cabbage leaves, cut into slices
1 teaspoon homemade chicken powder
1 cup Vi Vien's homemade vegetables pasta
Extra virgin olive oil, for drizzling

How to:

Put all ingredients (except pasta) into the stainless steel pot of an electric lunch box. Add enough water to cover the ingredients. Turn on the power and set the timer to 50 minutes.

In a separate pot, boil the vegetables pasta in boiling water over the stove for about 4 minutes. Add pasta into soup before serving. Drizzle with some extra virgin olive oil.

Menu #2: Baked Fish & Veggie Stew

(Serves 2)

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 medium ikan tenggiri cut, seasoned with salt & pepper
2 cups celery stalk & leaves, sliced
1/2 cup canned garbanzo beans (chickpeas), drained
1/2 cup pitted whole black olives
1 cup cooked homemade pasta
3 cups hot water
1/2 tablespoon homemade ikan bilis powder
1/2 cup cooking cream
Extra virgin olive oil, for drizzling

How to:

Preheat oven to 200°C.

Heat up olive oil in an ovenproof pot over medium heat. Add fish and cook for 5 minutes. Turn to the other side and cook for another 5 minutes. Add celery, garbanzo beans, black olives, and cooked pasta. Give everything a good stir and cook until celery looks somewhat cooked. Add hot water and ikan bilis powder. Cover and bring to a boil.

Then, reduce heat to medium. Uncover the pot and stir in cooking cream. Simmer gently, without cover, until the liquid is about to boil again. Remove from heat, cover the pot, and place it in the oven.

Bake for 40 minutes. Then, reduce heat to 160°C and bake for another 10 minutes. Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil before serving.

Menu #4: Rainbow Pasta Salad

1 cup cooked, shredded chicken breast
1/2 cup sliced black olives
Freshly grated Parmesan cheese
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste

For the dressing:
1/2 cup buttermilk
2 tablespoons Greek yogurt

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
Pinch of fine Himalayan pink salt

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the pasta and cook until tender but still firm to the bite for about 10 minutes. Drain and place the pasta in a large bowl. Reserve the pasta water. Toss the pasta with extra virgin olive oil.

Bring the pasta water to a boil again. Blanch broccoli, carrot, and red bell pepper for about 4 minutes. Drain and add these vegetables to the pasta bowl. Add in cherry tomatoes, shredded chicken breast, and black olives. Toss until well combined.

To make the dressing, mix all ingredients together and pour over the salad. Give everything a quick toss. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese generously and season with freshly ground black pepper.
