Vegan pasta with creamy lemon sauce is a dish for every day, especially when you need it fast. If I don’t have a shooting day and I’m sitting in the office, then it can also be quick and easy for us at lunchtime. It’s for those days that I have these recipes in my drawer, ready to pull out at a moment’s notice as needed. Sour is fun, as we all know, and in this dreary weather I love the tartness combined with the creaminess of the cashews.
Vegan pasta with lemony creamy sauce, easy and fast!
This simple and quick vegandish consists of two components, the pasta, and the sauce. Anything goes when it comes to pasta selection and you have the choice of durum wheat pasta, or a gluten-free option. For gluten-free variations, pasta variations made from rice or other legumes are suitable. You can find gluten-free pasta in well-stocked grocery stores or online.
The creamy sauce consists of cashews, vegetable milk, salt, pepper, garlic, nutritional yeast flakes, miso paste, lemon juice and lemon zest. All of this goes together in the high-powered blender and is blended into a fine sauce. If your blender is not very powerful, then I recommend soaking the cashews.

TIP: When using lemon juice, be sure to dose carefully. For me, 3 tablespoons was just right, though it may vary from lemon to lemon. Ready-made lemon juice from a glass bottle often has a more intense acid taste than freshly squeezed juice. Simply start with a smaller amount and add more as desired.
Vegan pasta dishes for everyday life
When choosing cashews, I always pay attention to sustainable origin and can highly recommend the products of Rapunzel here. The company has been operating a cooperative with farmers for several years, ensuring that they are paid fairly and have job security. You can read more about it here. *unpaid brand mention
TIP: I always buy a large package of fair trade cashews and store them in a cool, dry place. Comparing prices is worthwhile in any case. Organic quality and fair pay for employees are particularly important to me personally.
Cashews, by the way, are full of healthy micronutrients, including vitamin B1, unsaturated fatty acids, vegetable protein, fiber, sodium, potassium, niacin and phosphorus.
