Fresh, colorful, and light, our pesto still packs a serious nutrition punch. We combine heart-healthy walnuts and protein-rich hemp seeds in a creamy pesto dressing, toss it with nutritious chickpea pasta then add a heaping helping of white beans, roasted zucchini, and freshly chopped arugula. Not just rich in healthful, plant-sourced fats, this dish offers up minerals, B-Vitamins, and the complete protein our meals are always good for—along with a bright, summery flavor.

Walnuts, a diverse mix of legumes (chickpeas, split pea, white beans) and hemp add over 31 grams of protein to make this light chickpea pasta dish a serious and complete protein powerhouse.
Legumes and leafy greens contribute a full spectrum of B-Vitamins to our pesto pasta, including niacin, thiamin, riboflavin, Vitamin B6, folate, and Vitamin B-12. B-vitamins play a crucial role in energy maintenance and immunity, which makes them especially beneficial for active eaters.
Our pesto is teeming with phytonutrients—special chemical compounds sourced by plants (and only by plants) that may contribute to overall health and well being. Notable ones include phytosterols from the walnuts and hemp seeds, which may help to maintain healthy blood lipids, and glucosinolates from the arugula, which may have anti-inflammatory and disease fighting properties.
Our pasta is rich in electrolytes, including magnesium, potassium, chloride, and sodium, that may help to keep you hydrated and your muscles functioning at peak performance.
Our non-traditional pesto is prepared with a base of walnuts and hemp seeds, both of which are rich in alpha-linolenic acid, or ALA. ALA is a plant-based source of Omega-3 fatty acids, which a growing body of research has shows may be associated with heart health and with anti-inflammatory benefits.
Bean pasta is as nutrient-dense as it is delicious and comforting. Packed with protein from chickpeas and split peas, it’s a great source of branched chain amino acids (isoleucine, leucine, and valine) that are associated with muscle growth, repair, and function. We add white beans to the meal for extra plant protein, along with folate, iron, fiber, and Thiamin.
Our pesto contains over 60% of your daily dose of recommended dietary fiber. In addition to keeping your digestive system healthy, fiber keeps you full, which makes this a pasta supper with serious staying power.
