INGREDIENTS FOR THE SAUCE
  • 1 Tbsp flour
  • 1000 ml (approx. 4 Cups plant-milk)* Keep another 100ml spare
  • 3 Tbsp olive oil/Tbsp vegan butter
  • 100 gms (approx. 3/4 cup) shredded vegan Mozzarella ( Can replace it with 1/3 cup Nutritional Yeast)**
  • 2 Tsp veggie stock powder

REMAINING INGREDIENTS

  • 50g (1/2 cup) onions (finely chopped
  • 2 Cloves garlic
  • 1/2 red chilli finely chopped (Optional)
  • 100 gms Mushrooms finely chopped (Approx. 1 cup)
  • 200 gms sliced mushrooms (approx. 2cm thick)
  • 50 gms Zucchini finely chopped (aprox. 1/2 cup)
  • 150 gms Zucchini (1-2cms thick slices)
  • 1 tsp Apple Cider Vinegar
  • Salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • 300 gms. uncooked pasta of your choice. Cook it as per the packet instructions and keep it aside.

METHOD

  • Grill the sliced mushrooms and zucchini in a pan/griddle and keep them aside.
  • Heat the oil/butter in a deep large non stick frying pan (if using vegan butter don’t let it burn)
  • Add onions, garlic, chopped Mushrooms, Zucchini, and chillies and cook on med-high heat for 5-6 min to until the the mixture is cooked through. Stir occasionally
  • Turn the heat to low, add flour and cook for about 30 sec on low heat. Do not let it brown. Stir continuously.
  • Slowly add plant-milk while continuously whisking to avoid lumps.
  • Add vegan Mozzarella (or Nutritional yeast), veggie stock powder, and a pinch of ground black pepper. Whisk vigorously until the mixture is super smooth. Taste and adjust seasoning.
  • Cook the sauce until its thick enough to coat the back of a wooden spoon. It should take 6-9 min on low-med heat. Keep stirring to avoid sticking to the pan. (It will take longer if you are making bigger quantities)
  • Switch off the heat and stir through Apple Cider Vinegar. It helps round off the flavour.
  • Add splash of plant milk if the sauce is too thick.
  • Stir in the pasta, grilled Mushrooms and Zucchini.
  • Enjoy.

*I used soy milk

**If you can’t find vegan Mozzarella, you can use any hard vegan cheese. Grate it before using.
