Pasta with White Beans and Garlic

Dish Type: Pasta, Risotto and Polenta


  • 3 tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 2 Garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 15oz can White Beans
  • Juice of half a Lemon
  • 1 tablespoon Fresh Oregano
  • ½ tsp Dried Basil
  • 12oz Dried Linguine
  • 3 tablespoons Fresh Parsley, minced


Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and cook the pasta according to package directions, reserving about half a cup of pasta water when it’s done. While the pasta cooks, heat the oil over medium heat. Saute the garlic for just a few seconds (don’t let it burn), then add beans, lemon juice, oregano, and basil. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Cook until heated through. Mash a few of the beans, add reserved pasta water, and mix to form the sauce. Toss in pasta and add parsley.

Everything that Might Be Missing from Your Plant-Based Diet (and Nothing Else!)

complementI believe that plant-based is the healthiest way you can eat -- both for how you feel and perform in the short term, and for long-term health. But there are a few nutrients that are hard to get from plants, and I didn't want to take a whole multivitamin with so much extra that I'm already getting from my food. That's why I created Complement Plus, the perfect nutrient formula for plant-based athletes.

Complement Plus brings together, in one place, the essential nutrients that are missing from a reasonably diverse, whole food plant-based diet:
  • B12
  • D3
  • DHA/EPA Omega-3s
  • K2
  • Minerals like zinc, iodine, and selenium
It's everything that might be missing from your plant-based diet, with nothing extra.
