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
  • delicious
  • nutritious
  • vegan
  • made using natural + organic foods
  • creamy + comforting

I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we did! As always if you try the recipe please leave us a comment below, we love your feedback!

Which lentils should I use? Brown or orange?

Maria Koutsogiannis

I would go with brown!

So, worried about the cashews. I don’t have a high-speed blender like a Vitamix. What I have is the Ninja Mega Kitchen System (BL770) Blender. I’m hoping you or one of your readers is familiar with it and can tell me it can handle this recipe. Thanks!

Maria Koutsogiannis

It should be fine!
