Cuisine: Vegan
Prep time: 5 mins
Cook time: 15 mins
Total time: 20 mins
Ingredients
  • 350 g/12 oz pasta of your choice (I used a GF fusilli)
  • 4 large onions
  • 3 cups of fresh spinach
  • handful of chopped toasted walnuts
For the walnut cream:
  • ½ cup of walnuts
  • 1,5 tsp white miso paste
  • 1,5 tsp tomato paste
  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 lemon, juice
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 5 fresh sage leaves
  • pepper
Instructions
  1. Prepare pasta according to package instructions.
  2. Meanwhile add walnuts, miso, tomato paste, nutritional yeast, lemon juice, vinegar, garlic, sage and pepper to a blender with about ½ cup of water and blend until completely smooth.
  3. Slice onions thinly. Place them in a saucepan and sauté over medium heat for about 10 minutes or until they turn brown and translucent. Stir frequently and add 1-2 tablespoons of water at a time to prevent sticking. You can also use 1-2 tablespoons of vegan butter if you prefer.
  4. Add spinach, walnut cream and drained pasta and stir well to combine. Cook for one more minute and season with salt and pepper.
  5. Serve with toasted walnuts on top. Enjoy!
