Ingredients

  • 250 g Gluten Free spaghetti or linguini
  • 1 big red pepper
  • 2 garlic cloves finely chopped or crushed
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 2 Tbsp nutritional yeat
  • 1 Tbsp cornstarch or potato starch
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • Vegan parmesan (optional)
  • Fresh basil or coriander (optional)

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven at 260 C degrees. Put the red pepper on a baking sheet and put it to roast in the oven until charred (around 1/2h).


  2. Meanwhile put your pasta to cook according to the package instructions. When ready, drain, add a bit of olive oil, cover them and set aside.

  3. In a large skillet on medium heat, sauté the shallots and garlic in 2 Tbsp of olive oil. Cook them until they turn golden brown and soft, 5 min. Add salt and pepper, stir and remove from heat.

  4. When the red pepper is cooked, take it out the oven and wrap it up in foil for about 10 min – not too tight – then peel away the skin, and the inside of the vegetable.

  5. Transfer shallots & garlic and roasted pepper into the blender, add milk, nutritional yeast and starch. 

  6. Blend until the texture gets creamy and smooth. Season it to taste. You can also add more nutritional yeast. Don’t be afraid to be very generous with your seasonings.

  7. Blend again, then pour sauce back in the skillet over medium heat until it thicken. Once it simmer, reduce to low heat and continue simmering until you get the desired consistency.

  8. Add in the pasta and stir gently.

  9. Serve straight away with some vegan parmesan and some chopped fresh coriander or basil on top.
