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.


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


●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.❤
