Total time: 
Serves: 4
  • 1 package of whole wheat pasta
  • 2 skinless chicken breasts, cut into small cubes
  • 1 bundle of fresh white asparagus
  • 1 avocado, roughly chopped
  • half of mango, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 big size onion, finely chopped
  • 3 cloves of garlic, peeled and minced
  • fresh ginger, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • a handful of fresh basil
  • ½ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • sea salt and pepper to taste
  1. Boil the asparagus in a saucepan for 5 minutes. Once the asparagus is done, take it out and use that water for pasta, which will give them extra flavor. Let the pasta cook according to the package instructions.
  2. Meanwhile, put 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a second saucepan and fry the garlic, onion and the chicken cubes for a couple of minutes until the chicken is golden. Reduce the heat to a lower level and add the mango, the ginger, the red pepper flakes and let them simmer gently for 10 more minutes. Season the sauce carefully with sea salt and pepper.
  3. After the pasta is cooked, drain it and serve it on the plate. Pour the chicken and sauce, add the avocado and asparagus cubes and drizzle it with fresh basil. E voilà, prêt à manger!
