The weather is cool and wet (Kapha qualities), time for some pungent, warming foods (with Pitta qualities)!
2 cups kamut spiral pasta
1/4 cup minced fresh chives
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
salt to taste
paneer or soft goat cheese, optional
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil, and cook pasta until soft, about 12 minutes. When done, drain and return to the pot.
Combine the minced chives and garlic in a small bowl, stirring in the olive oil and salt. Stir this mixture into the cooked pasta. Sprinkle in the paneer or goat cheese if using, and gently toss. If using cheese, add some fresh ground black pepper to help make the cheese more easily digestible.
Serve with a mixed green salad with tomatoes and basil, or as a side dish to grilled or roasted dishes.
Serves 2 to 3.
