✅Cook 1 packet pasta (16 oz) as per packet directions. 🌱✅Chickpeas: Drain and rinse 1 can chickpeas. Rub between paper towels to dry and remove skins. Transfer to a medium bowl. Add 1 tbsp olive oil or dash lemon juice, a generous sprinkle of garlic powder, dried thyme, and salt. Roast at 425F for 10 to 15 minutes, until they start to get crispy. Broil for an additional 2 to 3 minutes until very crispy . (Be careful not to burn them.) Set aside. 🌱✅Make the sauce (2-1/2 cups): In a high-speed blender, pulse 3/4 cup cashews (soaked overnight or in very hot water for 1 hour) on low for about 1 minute, or until they turn into small crumbs. ✅Add 4 tbsp cornstarch, 2 tbsp mellow/white miso dissolved in 2 tbsp water, 2 cups hot water, 2 small cloves garlic, 2 teaspoons lemon juice, and 1/2 tsp ground mustard seed (if you have it). Blend on high until smooth. ✅Transfer to a medium saucepan and cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, for about 3 minutes, or until the white sauce has thickened to a desirable consistency. Add sriracha, salt and black pepper to taste. ✅Stir in desired amount of cooked pasta. (I think spaghetti works best.) ✅Toast 1/4 cup breadcrumbs in a medium skillet in a little olive oil (optional) over medium heat until golden brown. ✅Top the pasta with roasted chickpeas and toasted breadcrumbs when serving.
