09 Mar The Best Pasta Sauce, ever! (plant based, 10 minutes)
Living a natural food diet mixed with a plant based diet can sometimes be hard, or so they say. But I would have to disagree because this 10 minute pasta sauce recipe absolutely blew my mind – it is 100% vegan and damn delicious. It all starts with a perfectly roasted red pepper and more natural foods to heighten the flavours. Things like creamy cashews and nutritional yeast really add depth to this super simple sauce, and I promise you will come thank me later. It is THAT good!
I am a huge fan of vegetable recipes because I really love challenging myself and finding new ways to incorporate nutrients into things that might not always pack the most punch. A lot of pasta sauces on the markets have loads of sugar and hidden ingredients but I promise you this natural food recipe has no secrets.
It is full of flavour, creaminess, and good-for-you ingredients!
You are going to love this pasta sauce recipe because is it:
- quick + easy
- made using natural + organic foods
- creamy + comforting
