I wanted to create a super rich and unique tasting sauce that also snuck in a few extra veggies. The best part about this creamy pasta sauce is that is can also be used in salads and on roasted veggies.

Creamy Vegan Pasta Sauce

Ok we all love creamy pasta and we all love a good pasta sauce but maybe not the dairy…

I wanted to create a super-rich and unique tasting sauce that also snuck in a few extra veggies. The best part about this creamy pasta sauce is that is can also be used in salads and on roasted veggies.

This recipe makes a big batch so you will have lots leftover to add to other dishes as well.

Here is what you will need:


  • 1 package of chickpea pasta
  • 2-3 medium potatoes, roughly chopped
  • 1/4 white onion, roughly chopped
  • 2 large carrots peeled and roughly chopped
  • 4-6 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 2 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 3/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp minimum sea salt. This recipe makes 4-6 large servings so I would add salt, taste and adjust from there. You can always add more at the end of the recipe.
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • 1/2 cup soaked cashews
  • avocado oil for sauteeing
  • Pepper to taste
  • Optional: 2 heads of broccoli (but would highly recommend!)

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil
  2. While waiting for the water to boil sauté the onion in a frying pan with a little avocado oil until softened
  3. Optional: in a separate frying pan, saute the broccoli with oil, salt and pepper until softened
  4. Once the large pot of water is boiling add the potato and the carrot
  5. While the potatoes and carrots are cooking you can go ahead and cook your pasta as per the instructions
  6. In the meantime add the minced garlic, onion powder, sea salt, pepper, dijon mustard, nutritional yeast, soaked cashews, lemon juice and coconut milk to the food processor.
    1. If the onion is ready, you can also add that as well. Blend until partially smooth.
    2. Don’t worry about getting it perfectly smooth since you still have to add more veggies.
  7. Once the potatoes and carrots are soft, remove them from the water and add them to the food processor.
  8. Blend on high until smooth. If there is a lot of steam, you may need to let some air out.
  9. Give it a taste and add more salt if needed! You can also add more nutritional yeast if you want it to have a cheesier flavor.
  10. Add about half of the sauce to the cooked pasta and add the broccoli if you made it.
  11. Top with additional black pepper and sea salt
