Vegan Rosé Pasta Recipe with Spinach and Mushrooms.

A healthier alternative to cream pasta that is totally vegan and rich in iron, calcium, magnesium and other important vitamins and minerals. Take your favourite gluttonous pasta dish and make it better!

Cream pasta is my ultimate vice and this version is a dream without all the dairy cream. What’s the secret? Cashews! Nuts are the vegan answer to creamy goodness and when you add garlic and sautéed veggies, you’re in for a treat. This recipe is wonderful for lactose-intolerant folks and it’s received the seal of approval from many of my non-vegan friends too. Picture tangy tomatoes with velvety cream tossed with savoury veggies and garlic. Yum.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup  of my basil marinara sauce 
  • 1 cup of raw cashews
  • 1/2 cup of water
  • 1.5  tbsp of nutritional yeast
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 – 3 cloves garlic
  • 2 cups spinach, washed and chopped
  • 1 cup mushrooms, washed and sliced
  • 350 grams of pasta (spaghettini, fettuccine or tagliatelle recommended)
  • 4 – 5 leaves of fresh basil (optional)

Prep:

  1. Cover raw cashews in a generous amount of water for a minimum of 2 hours (or overnight). Cashews will expand a little so be sure to use a container with enough room.
  2. Drain soaked cashews, discard water and rinse.
  3. Prep your veg:
    • Mince garlic
    • Wash, dry, and roughly chop spinach
    • Wash, dry, and thinly slice mushrooms

Directions:

  1. Blend soaked cashews, nutritional yeast, water and salt until velvety smooth.
  2. In a pot of salted boiling water, add pasta, cook until al dente, rinse and set aside.
  3. In a medium-sized frying pan on medium heat, add olive oil, heat for 3 minutes.
  4. Add garlic to heated oil, sauté until golden brown, 3 mins.
  5. Add mushrooms, sauté until water is expelled and mushrooms slices are firm and brown, about 5 – 6 minutes.
  6. Add spinach, sauté until water is expelled. *There should be no remaining water in the pan. Thoroughly pre-drying helps spinach keep its integrity without accumulating too much water.*
  7. Once mushrooms and spinach are sautéed with no remaining water, add cashew cream mix, heat for 4 mins, stirring frequently.
  8. Add 1 cup of basil marinara, stir until heated, 5 mins.
  9. Add pasta, toss gently on medium heat until all pasta is covered with sauce and temperature is hot.vegan-creampasta-recipe-rose-montreal-1
  10. Garnish with fresh basil and/or nutritional yeast and/or chopped cashews (all optional)
  11. Serve pasta, makes 2  generous servings or 4  small servings.

Buon appetito!
