Ingredients

  • 360g linguine
  • 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 5 sliced garlic cloves
  • 1 finely chopped red chilli
  • Bunch of chopped fresh parsley stalks (reserve the leaves for later)
  • 125ml dry white wine
  • 90g fresh samphire
  • 400g tin of drained and rinsed chickpeas
  •  A squeeze of lemon juice
  • Chopped reserved fresh parsley leaves

Method

  1. Cook the linguine according to the pack instructions. Reserve a mugful of the pasta cooking water, then drain well. While the pasta is cooking, heat the olive oil in a large non-stick frying pan.
  2. Add the garlic cloves, red chilli and a bunch of chopped fresh parsley stalks (reserve the leaves for later). Cook over a medium heat for 3-4 minutes until fragrant. Pour in the white wine, then simmer for 2 minutes.
  3. Stir in the samphire and chickpeas, then warm through. Add the drained linguine to the pan, tossing to coat. Toss with a splash of the reserved pasta water until well coated and saucy.
  4. Season to taste with a squeeze of lemon juice, salt and plenty of black pepper, then stir in the chopped reserved fresh parsley leaves. Finish with a drizzle of olive oil.

  1. I thought this was a surprisingly nice dish! I had bought some samphire for the first time and was looking for vegan friendly recipes to use it in when stumbling across this one. I think the secret is in using enough spices. The relatively large amount of garlic is a great start but I really think that chilli, black pepper, parsley and lemon juice are essential for this to not be bland, so be generous with all of it! The saltiness of the samphire works so well in combination with lemon and parsley and it almost tastes like a seafood dish without the seafood. I didn´t have and white wine in the house so I´m assuming it would be even better. It´s fresh and easy and ticks all our boxes for a quick weeknight dinner!
