Mint and Vegetable Chia Pasta

I am always on the hunt for new recipes and new products that will help me lead a healthy and active lifestyle. I believe that I can stay healthier through the foods I eat and the exercise I am able to get.


Try Seeds of Wellness Chia Pasta

I was introduced to chia seeds years ago and have used them in recipes for years. Recently I learned about Seeds of Wellness and Chia Pasta. I enjoy chia pasta! I started by swapping 1/2 of the pasta I prepared with Chia Pasta and have progressed to preparing pasta dishes that are entirely Chia Pasta. 


The images shown in this post depict a 1/2 Chia Pasta to 1/2 another brand of gluten free pasta. 

Why Choose Chia Pasta

Chia is an ancient grain that provides antioxidants, fiber, vitamins, and minerals. Chia also contains Omega-3 fatty acids which are not plentiful in many people's daily diets. 


Mint and Vegetable Chia Pasta

Ingredients (serves 2)

  • Olive Ol or Chia Oil (just enough so nothing sticks to the pan)
  • 2 large cloves of garlic (crushed and diced)
  • 1/4 cup of onion diced
  • 2 cups frozen peas 1/4 cup vegetable broth 
  • 1/2 cup diced zucchini
  • 1 tsp ground pepper
  • 1/4 - 1/2 cup mint leaves diced 
  • 1/4 - 1/2 cup grated Parmesan or Vegan alternative
  • 1 cup dry pasta (gluten free pasta or pasta of your choice)
  • 1 cup Seeds of Wellness Chia Pasta

NOTE: I like to keep "shape" of pasta similar for visual continuity



  • Sautee onion and garlic in a pan until translucent
  • Add peas
  • Once peas begin to soften add 1/2 of the mint and broth
  • While the peas are cooking until the water is reduced, boil water for the pasta
  • When the water is almost gone, add the pasta with 95% of the water drained
  • Stir the pasta into the peas and reduce the liquid
  • Add the cheese, pepper, and the rest of the mint. Stir to combine
  • Serve ... add a wedge of gluten free bread if you wish. Sprinkle Chia Oil as a finishing touch if you wish.
