Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup raw cashews
  • 1 1/2 cups white potato , peeled & chopped into 1-inch pieces (about 2 small potatoes)
  • 16 ounces fettuccine , dried (GF if preferred)
  • Olive oil , a drizzle if needed
  • 1 cup soy milk , unsweetened (or any plant-based milk)
  • 1 cup vegetable broth , low sodium
  • 3/4 teaspoon granulated onion
  • 1 teaspoon salt , more to taste
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 1 tablespoon tapioca flour/starch
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice , freshly squeezed
  • 2 tablespoons vegan butter
  • 3 cloves garlic , minced
  • 3/4 cup frozen peas , thawed (*See note)

Instructions

  • Boil the potatoes and cashews about 8-10 minutes until the potatoes are fork-tender. Drain well and set aside.
  • Place fettuccine in a large pot of salted boiling water. Cook until al dente (about 10-12 minutes). Drain and drizzle with olive oil to prevent sticking.
  • Now place all ingredients into a blender (except butter & garlic). Blend until potatoes and cashews have completely broken down and sauce is smooth. Set aside.
  • Heat up butter in a large pan over medium heat. When melted, add garlic and sauté for 30-60 seconds until lightly brown and fragrant.
  • Pour cream sauce into the pan. Cook for 3-4 minutes until sauce slightly thickens up. Stir often to prevent burning. Taste for seasoning and add more if needed.
  • Now add pasta and thawed peas to pan and gently toss to coat. Serve immediately. Enjoy!

Notes

  • To thaw peas, place in a colander and rinse under cool water for 1-2 minutes.
