Ingredients: (2 person)

 

300 gr. whole wheat penne (or spelt penne pasta)

3 cups of brown champignons

1 small white onion, finely chopped

1-2 cloves of garlic, minced

1 tbsp. of coconut oil (or any other plant oil)

6 tbsp. of vegan cashew dressing

1/2 cup of dry white wine (optional)

1/4 – 1/2 cup of plant based milk (almond milk or oat milk)

1 tbsp. of fresh rosemary

Handful of basil leaves, washed and dried

salt & pepper, to taste

 

Process:

  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook your penne pasta to al dente.
  2. In a large pan over medium heat sauté onion in coconut oil for 2 minutes until soft and fragrant.
  3. Then add champignons and cook for 5 minutes. When champignons are half cooked, stir in minced garlic and rosemary. Cook for another 2 minutes.
  4. Now add in white wine and simmer for 5 minutes.
  5. Stir in your vegan cashew dressing.
  6. Then add the milk and let it simmer for 5 minutes. You will see the sauce getting thickened slowly. If the sauce becomes too thick, add some hot pasta water or milk and thin the sauce.
  7. Add a pinch salt and pepper. Remember that your cashew dressing is already seasoned well!
  8. Now add the basil leaves and your penne pasta.
  9. Toss to combine everything well and coat pasta in sauce for 2 minutes.
  10. Serve immediately and enjoy your meal!
