To celebrate the launch of @seedandsproutco’s new pantry and spice jars, we made a recipe using up bits and bobs that you always have lying around the kitchen- like stale bread and herb stalks! This one is super easy but FULL of flavour and will leave you wanting to put “stalk sauce” on just about everything!

- Serves: 4 People
- 500 g Linguine
- 3 slices Bread, (doesn't matter if they're a bit stale)
- Olive oil
- 1 bunch Parlsey stalks
- 1 bunch Mint stalks, could use basil or coriander stalks (whatever you have left over) garlic clove
- 1 tsp Mustard
- 2 tbsp Small/baby gherkins
- 1 heaped tbsp Baby capers
- 1 Lemon
- Chilli flakes
Get pot of water on the boil for pasta.
Put 3 slices of bread into a blender/food processor and blitz into a chunky crumb.
Put approx 50mL of olive oil into a pan on high heat.
Put pasta into pot of boiling water and cook as per specific instructions.
Once pan/oil up to temperature, add bread crumbs into pan and stir intermittently. Take off the heat once crunchy (approx. 10 mins).
To create stalk sauce: add herb stalks, roughly chopped garlic clove, mustard, baby gherkins, baby capers, zest and juice of 1 lemon and 3 tablespoons of olive oil into blender.
Once pasta is finished cooking, place it into pan with the breadcrumbs (get a bit of the pasta liquid in with it) and pour the blended stalk sauce in too.
Mix together. Optional to serve topped with some chilli flakes.
