What’s better than a vegan creamy, cheesy flavoured pasta? One that’s on the table in 25 minutes.
Leeks and nutmeg give this a depth you wouldn’t expect from a quick dish, while nutritional yeast adds the all-important cheese flavour.
If you’re stuck for dinner ideas tonight, make it this creamy textured and delicious plant-based pasta.
1 leek, sliced
½ tsp crushed garlic
2 large handfuls of spinach leaves
1 tbsp cornflour
Large pinch lo-salt and black pepper
Fresh parsley, to garnish
Heat the coconut oil in a non-stick pan then add the leek, garlic and oregano. Cook for 8-10 minutes until softened, then remove from the heat.
Meanwhile prepare the pasta according to packet instructions then drain.
Place the almond milk in a small saucepan and bring to just under the boil. Mix together the cornflour with a little water to form a paste, then pour this into the milk and whisk for a few minutes until it starts to thicken up nicely.
Stir in the nutritional yeast, nutmeg and seasoning, then stir through the cooked leeks, drained pasta and spinach to heat through.
Serve out onto a plate, decorate with fresh parsley then enjoy straight away!
