No Meat, No Problem!

I love entertaining. House warming parties, holidays, birthday parties, you name it, I’ll host it. I love spending time with the people I love in my space and I absolutely love feeding people.

I love that food brings people together for every single occasion, happy or sad, big or small. Food is always involved.

I was hosting a girls weekend for some of my oldest friends recently. Some of us eat meat, some of the ladies have had to learn how to be celiac moms, and some of them have been dipping their toes into the vegan lifestyle.

I know what you’re thinking “what the heck did you serve for dinner?”. Luckily, we had just tested our Vegan Pasta Bake with White Wine Sauce and I was inspired.

We have seen a huge influx of people searching for vegan recipes on FFF. Not only has my friend group started to check out the vegan lifestyle, but so have YOU. Everyone is all about our vegan cheese sauce recipe lately and we too have caught the vegan cheese sauce itch.

I ended up making a delicious white wine pasta sauce recipe, threw it over gluten free pasta, and tossed in tasty roasted vegetables. IT WAS SO GOOD.

Everyone was full and happy. If you have been trying to add more meatless dishes to your weekly menu or if you have some questions about vegan pasta, get ready. We’re going to take a deeper dive into everything vegan pasta recipes right MEOW.

Vegan Pasta Recipes Q & A

Is white wine vegan? 

Some white wine is vegan and some white wine is not. Traditionally, all wine is filtered through a fining agent to remove and filter certain things from the wine. Usually, that fining agent is made from an animal byproduct.

Luckily, there are wine brands out there that have figured out how to do the filtering process with different material!

Can vegans eat pasta? 

YES, vegans can eat pasta! However, not all pasta’s on the market are vegan. Make sure to check labels and ingredient lists of any pasta you are thinking about purchasing. Some great vegan pasta brands are Brandless, Banza, and Jovial.

Do I use roasted cashews or raw cashews for vegan cheese sauce?

Traditionally, raw cashews are used for vegan pasta sauce. However, I have good news for you. YOU CAN USE BOTH roasted cashews or raw cashews.

It does depend on your personal preference on flavor. Roasted cashews tend to leave a little bit of a smokier or sweeter flavor depending on what roasted cashew you use.

The good thing is that the texture of the vegan pasta sauce does not change. It comes out creamy and thick no matter what type of cashew you use!

How to Make Vegan Pasta Sauce

Where do you even start when contemplating a vegan pasta recipe for dinner? It is a lot easier than you think. You do have to plan a little bit ahead, but having your pantry stocked with vegan pasta pantry staples makes life a little easier.

Here are some tips and tricks to figure out as you decide what vegan pasta recipe to make for dinner!

vegan pasta sauce base?

There are so many options when considering a base for your vegan pasta sauce. Generally, we go for a cashew cream sauce + nutritional yeast base because it is flipping amazing.

We love the consistency that the cashews give the pasta sauce and if you’re going for an earthier or “cheesy” flavor, nutritional yeast will be your best friend. Below are other vegan pasta sauce base options!

  • Sweet Potato
  • Roasted Red Pepper
  • Tahini
  • Almond Milk Roux
  • Butternut Squash

Don’t forget your veggies! 

We love blending veggies into our vegan pasta sauce as well as mixing roasted vegetables into our vegan pasta recipes. For this white wine vegan pasta sauce recipe, we roasted a whole head of garlic.

OH EM GEE. The roasted garlic gives this pasta sauce an amazing flavor! If you are planning to blend any veggies into the vegan pasta sauce all you have to do is cook them before pureeing them.

You can roast, steam or Instant Pot any of your vegetables and you are all set to puree!

It’s all about your food processor.

I always say you know when you’re adult if you have two things:

  1. A Dish Washer
  2. A Vitamix

When it comes to making a vegan pasta sauce, it’s all about the blender you use. I used to have a super low powered mini Cuisinart and I tried to make our Vegan Queso and it was an absolute flop.

You absolutely need a blender or food processor that can pulverize cashews and veggies into a creamy delicious sauce. Our two recommendations would be a Vitamix or a Cuisinart High Powered Blender. Go ahead and invest in one of these amazing tools!
