Super creamy Sun-Dried Tomato Pasta Sauce Recipe – next level (vegan) comfort food! Created with only 5 simple ingredients. Perfect with vegan tortellini.



  • 2 portions of pasta
  • 1 Tbsp sunflower oil
  • 1 large yellow onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 Tbsp sundried tomatoes, roughly chopped
  • 1 Tbsp tomato paste
  • 250ml dairy-free cream
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • fresh herbs to garnish (totally optional)


  1. Prepare your pasta according to the packaging instructions.
  2. In a large non-stick pan heat the sunflower oil and fry the chopped onion for 2 minutes until translucent. Add in the minced garlic and cook for another minute.
  3. Roughly chop up the sun-dried tomatoes and add them to the pan. Stir through the tomato paste, then reduce the heat to low and pour in the dairy-free cream.
  4. Stir the sauce until it’s a creamy red colour & allow to simmer for 5 minutes. Season with salt & pepper, then add in the pasta and stir to combine.
  5. Serve hot & garnish with fresh herbs, such as basil, thyme, rosemary or sage.


No cream? no problem! Add 1 Tbsp almond butter and 2 Tbsp dairy-free yoghurt instead, then add a few tablespoons of water until you can stir everything together into a sauce.

Also tastes great with a sprinkle of nooch (=nutritional yeast) on top!
