Creamy Pasta with Sundried Tomatoes (Vegan)


One thing is for sure when I have to make a dairy free or vegan meal, I no longer feel worried when it comes to taste, options etc. This is because I now know that vegan substitutes do not taste like the food the mimic, but with the right recipe you can have a very close resemblance and maybe even a whole other dimension of amazing flavor. Granted I still want meat, I find myself enjoying these recipes. Tweaking as I go, I find ways to enjoy my favorite foods without having to pay for it the next day. Finally I'm sharing one of my "cheese sauce" recipes with you and I really do hope you enjoy.






INGREDIENTS



2 1/2 cups cooked Corkscrew Pasta


(Or any pasta of your choosing really)


1 packet Sundried Tomatoes chopped

(Truthfully I could not locate any myself but I washed and cored 1/2lb tomatoes and threw them in the air fryer for 20 mins)


2 tbsp dried Basil


Black pepper and Salt to taste




Vegan Cheese Sauce


1 large-med sized potato

(peeled and boiled)


1 cup Coconut Full Cream Milk

(or any Plant Based Milk)


1/2 cup Nutritional Yeast


2 tbps Tapioca Starch (optional)


1/4 cup Olive Oil (70 g)


1 tbsp Lemon juice or Vinegar


1 tsp Salt


1 tsp Garlic powder


1/2 tsp Onion powder


1/8 Chili Flakes

1/2 tsp White Pepper



METHOD



●Place coconut milk and all other ingredients except potatoes in blender on medium speed and blend till everything is incorporated.


●Gradually add potatoes and blend on high?


●Add sauce to saucepan and then place pan on medium low heat and stir until your sauce begins to simmer and thicken.


●Allow to come to desired thickness before tossing in pasta.

(If sauce is too thick feel free to add more milk or water to thin it out a bit)


●Add sundried tomatoes and basil along with salt and black pepper and mix well.


●Serve this dish hot and most importantly enjoy.





Thanks for having another session of Food Therapy with me and I do hope to see you soon.❤
