  • 1/2
    tsp Salt

    tsp Pepper
  • 1-2
    TBSP Water

    TBSP Potato starch

Instructions

1
Chop 1 Large onion (save scraps for future broth - recipe below) & sauté in~ 4 TBSP Hot oil in a large sauce pan. Oil free? Skip it-
2
Add 1 cup Vegetable broth & sauté until the onions are soft
3
Add to a high speed blender, along with another 1 cup Veggie broth, 3/4 cup Cashews (soak overnight or in boiling water for 10 min)
4
2 TBSP Garlic powder, 4 TBSP Nutritional yeast, 1 TBSP Lemon juice, 1 tsp Smoked paprika, 1/2 tsp Salt & 1/2 tsp Pepper. Purée until smooth.
5
Heat up a large pot of water (+whatever your directions say) for your pasta
6
When boiling, add pasta to water, I used @seggianofoods tagliatelle. If you’re gluten-free or keto use whatever pasta you want & cook to directions.
7
As pasta cooks, heat onion pan up again with some oil and chop whatever veggies you want: I added more onion, broccoli & mushrooms. Add to pan and steam/sauté,
8
Cashews are a great source of protein, but I wanted a little extra pizazz so I added @gardein chick’n strips!
9
Add sauce to the veg pan and cook on med-high until it thickens. If not thick enough, mix 1 TBSP Potato starch & 1-2 TBSP Water and stir in
10
When your pasta is ready, drain. Option: if veggies/sauce isn’t ready yet add a little olive oil so it doesn’t start to stick
11
Add pasta to the pot and gently turn over in the sauce and veggies so it’s evenly coated.
12
DONE! Plate it up. I added my coconut bacon bits and served with toasted sourdough with olive oil and sea salt, a plant based parm would be great! ENJOY! 😋
