Make The Ordinary Extraordinary With NEW! ZENB Pasta Sides — And Make It A Meal With These Pairings

Every home cook has been there: You’re all set to make a delicious entree for dinner and need to round out the meal with a nice little side dish. But you don’t have the bandwidth to scroll TikTok in search of a whole other recipe. Or, maybe the vegetable crisper is bare after the salad you made for lunch. It shouldn’t be a chore to come up with something nutritious ✅ fast ✅ easy ✅ tasty! Well, consider this conundrum conquered with ZENB Pasta Sides, a one-skillet wonder that combines quick-cooking ZENB Pasta Agile and chef-crafted seasoning blends.

ZENB Pasta Sides are a brand-new addition to our line of plant-powered products, and we’re stoked for all the ways they’re going to empower our community of mindful foodies to Eat Like it Matters!

There are four globally inspired flavor profiles to choose from, each of which comes together in just a few minutes in one skillet. And, ofc the convenience factor is balanced with impressive nutritional stats: Each ZENB Pasta Sides offers 12-14 grams of protein and 7-8 grams of fiber per serving, and every flavor is vegan, gluten-free and non-GMO.

Now, it’s crazy-easy to make a complete, elevated meal, and with all of the ZENB Pasta Sides flavors, the options are endless. However, if you’re looking for a wee bit of inspiration on some pairing examples, we got you, boo!

ZENB Pasta Sides: Cashew e Pepe + Cauliflower Steaks

To know cacio e pepe (cheese and pepper) is to love cacio e pepe. This forever-trending duo gets a plant-full ZENB makeover as Cashew e Pepe, with a gorgeous texture and a sharp, spicy black pepper edge. It’s a real “less is more” situation, with just a few ingredients creating a crave-able, delectable side dish that goes well with so many mains.

One pairing that is a total knockout with Cashew e Pepe is cauliflower steaks. Super-satisfying cauliflower steaks are thick slices of this cruciferous queen rubbed with olive oil and seasonings, then grilled, roasted, or air-fried. The crisp-tender texture of the “steaks” with the creamy Cashew e Pepe Pasta Agile is the stuff Meatless Monday dreams are made of!

ZENB Pasta Sides: Broccoli & Almonds + Pan-Seared and Roasted Chicken Breast

There’s something so classic about broccoli and almonds; it’s giving “Sunday supper” or “healthy option at a steakhouse.” ZENB Pasta Sides delivers that iconic flavor with a heaping helping of protein and fiber to boot. Plus, it’s ready in less than five minutes!

For dinner, try this ZENB Pasta Sides flavor with pan-seared and roasted chicken breasts for a classy, yet unfussy pairing. Chicken breasts are a no-fail dinner entree that bring plenty of protein to the table. About 15 minutes before you’re ready to cook the chicken, set the oven to 415 degrees Fahrenheit and generously salt and pepper each chicken breast. Then, brown them in butter or olive oil over medium-high heat in an oven-safe skillet for about 2 minutes on each side. Pop the skillet into the heated oven for 20 minutes (or until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees), and you’re good to go.

ZENB Pasta Sides: Roasted Garlic Soy + Glazed Salmon Fillets

If Asian-inspired noodle dishes are your jam, our Roasted Garlic Pasta Sides flavor is going to be your new fav. Earthy, aromatic garlic and umami-forward tamari sauce are such a killer combo! Though they’d be perfect topped with sesame seeds and chopped scallions, they also complement all kinds of vegetable or protein entrees.

For a fabulous pairing, try glazed salmon filets. You can prepare the salmon using your preferred method, like roasted, broiled, pan-seared, or grilled. Throughout the cooking process, simply baste the salmon with the glaze for a deliciously sticky, savory result! To make a DIY glaze, combine soy sauce, honey or maple syrup, garlic powder, sriracha and citrus juice to taste. Or, try Korean gochujang sauce, a fermented red chili paste made from gochugaru peppers, mejukaru (fermented soy bean powder), and glutinous rice powder. You can find bottles of this condiment in Asian markets or natural food stores.

ZENB Pasta Sides: Chili Fiesta + Grilled Shrimp Skewers

If you’re tired of the same old, same old on Taco Tuesday, forge a bold new path with ZENB Pasta Sides Chili Fiesta flavor! A zesty Southwestern-style sauce with corn brings Tex-Mex flair to the plate, and makes a great base for a burrito bowl in place of rice.

As a side dish, we love this flavor with a Mexican-influenced protein, like garlic-and-lime grilled shrimp skewers. This is beyond simple to pull together: Fire up the grill, season the cleaned shrimp with salt and pepper, oregano, and cumin, and thread them onto soaked wooden skewers. Grill them over medium-high heat for just 2 minutes on each side, then give each skewer a generous squeeze of lime juice.

No matter which pairings pique your interest, we hope ZENB Pasta Sides help make mealtime easier and more enjoyable, even when you’re pressed for time after a busy day!
