Biona Organic Spelt Pasta with Spinach and Avocado

| September 29, 2013

I don’t like to eat too much wheat and try to keep it to only those times when I’m on the run and need to grab a quick sandwich. At home I buy Biona Organic Spelt Pastaand Biona Organic Rye Breadwhich Imogen and hubby both love, so we all enjoy the health benefits of eating spelt and less wheat. Spelt pasta is wholemeal and cooks in 5 minutes.

Last week I made Biona Organic Spelt Pastawith organic spinach and avocado. So simple. I just added a dash of pesto and a twist of ground pepper.

The finished product = wheat free, quick, healthy and delicious!

My local Waitrose supermarket stopped selling Biona products several months ago and I’ve since discovered Biona Organic Spelt Pasta and Biona Organic Rye Bread on Amazonwhich offers a subscribe and save deal as well as free postage.

    I’ve recently started using spelt flour in most of my baking and LOVE it, so your post using spelt pasta really stood out to me. I love avocado & spinach with pasta, and am a huge pesto fiend! Shall be purchasing some Biona pasta now, thanks so much! Dropping by from Recipe of the Week by the way!

  7. This looks so delicious, I adore avocados and just getting into using spelt pasta too, will try this.

      So pleased to hear you’re trying spelt pasta, it’s great to have an alternative to wheat. Avocados are so versatile, love them 🙂

    Thanks Emily for choosing my Spelt Pasta with Spinach and Avocado for tea 🙂 Enjoy! Mmmm that granola with banana and maple looks smashing and the thought of a warm veg soup for lunch is very tempting. Lydia x
