Egg plant pasta with shrimps

20-10-2015, by Mieke

A very light, effortless no-pasta pasta with tomatoes and shrimps. I replaced the pasta for an egg plant and a carrot to make this dish super light. Check out this super easy recipe.

This dinner dish is a super light alternative for pasta. You will need some equipment to cut your vegetables in really thin spaghetti-like strings though. I used the GEFU Spirelli Spiralschneider, but I'm sure there are other ones on the market. However, you will not regret buying it, because you can use it to garnish all kinds of vegetables like a pro and swap your pasta for vegetables every once in a while. 

Time to prepare: 15 minutes

Groceries for 2 servings:

Egg plant 1 piece
Carrot 1 big / 2 small
Sweet paprika 1 piece
Sweet onion 1 piece
Garlic 1 clove
Peeled shrimps, find them in the freezer in your supermarket 300 grams
Can of sliced tomatoes 500 grams
Chickpeas 400 grams


  • Boil some water.
  • Meanwhile, slice your egg plant and carrot in thin strings. You can use what’s left of the carrot and egg plant together with the other vegetables in the sauce.
  • Slice your other vegetables. 
  • Throw the sliced egg plant and carrot in your boiling water, about 5 minutes should be enough. Keep checking your ‘spaghetti' until it reaches that nice 'al dente' structure. Get it out of the water and let is cool down a bit while you prepare your sauce.
  • Bake the shrimps, together with some curry powder (when the shrimps are still frozen, pore some hot water over them and they will be ready in about one minute)
  • Add the garlic and vegetables
  • Add the chickpeas, for some bite in the dish, the sliced tomatoes and some extra curry powder, lower your fire and let it simmer for a few minutes.

Ready to serve!
