Ingredients & Notes
- pasta - I used tagliatelle but you can easily swap this for spaghetti or your favorite long pasta. Make sure it's egg-free for a vegan dish!
- chestnut mushrooms - chestnut mushrooms are my shroom of choice for this dish!
- aromatics - onion, garlic & fresh sage leaves
- white wine - a simple vegan-friendly white wine works well for this dish. It adds another layer of flavor!
- plant milk - to give the sauce some delicious creaminess! Unsweetened soya milk is my personal go-to, but swap it for your favorite unsweetened plant milk such as homemade oat milk.
- flour - all purpose flour (UK: plain flour) to help thicken the sauce.
- seasonings - salt & black pepper to taste
- a large saucepan
- a strainer
- a large skillet
How to Make Vegan Mushroom Pasta
This recipe is just as easy to make as it is full of delicious flavours! First, let's start by preparing your pasta according to the packaging instructions. Whilst the pasta is boiling, stop preparing your ingredients.
Place the sliced chestnut mushrooms into a large skillet. Make sure that the skillet is dry and no oil is added to it. Don't worry your mushrooms will not burn, but a dry skillet forced them to release all of the moisture. Cook your mushrooms on high heat for about 10 minutes until they've released all their liquid and the majority of it has evaporated from the pan. Add the finely diced onions and fry until softened, then add the crushed garlic and fresh sage leaves.
Pour in the white wine and cook it off for 2-3 minutes.
Sprinkle in the flour then stir in the soya milk. Best use a big whisk to implement the flour and soya milk. Heat the sauce for a few minutes or until it thickens, then remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve either on top of your pasta or mix your pasta into the sauce to evenly coat, then serve up!
