This recipe is packed with nutrients. Nutritional yeast is brimming with B Vitamins, there are a plethora of vitamins and fibre in the vegetables and the bone broth is rich in the amino acids proline and glycine, which are vital for healthy connective tissue (ligaments, joints, around organs, etc).”

or2 large carrots,
or2 cups (1" cubes) of pumpkin, raw (232 g)
or1 cup cauliflower florets
or1 zucchini
or1/2 cup of chicken stock
or25 grams of tasty Grated Cheese
or1 tbsp of butter
or5 cups shells of pasta, whole-wheat, cooked (525 g)
Steam vegetables until very tender. Place all remaining ingredients as well as vegetables into a blender and blend until very smooth.
Toss through pasta in a large bowl and serve. For very fickle kids, I find a sprinkle of cheese on top melted under the griller can entice them in.
