Ready to take the guesswork out of Gluten-Free?

Herby Vegan Alfredo Pasta

This flavorful one-pot dairy-free Herby Vegan Alfredo Pasta will knock your socks off! A perfect easy weeknight meal that’s both dairy and gluten-free, easy to make and easy to clean up. Plus it’s creamy, comforting, and perfect for a cool rainy day.

It took several rounds of recipe testing to get this one right, and I promise you won’t be able to put this pasta down! We finished the entire pot in a single day and were sad we didn’t have more leftovers!

Why you’ll fall in love with this easy Vegan Alfredo Pasta:

  • So creamy, and it tastes just like a real alfredo sauce!
  • One-pot. Need I say more?
  • Bold and comforting
  • Dinner-party worthy — I bet your friends will love it too!

What to know before you start:

The ingredients are weird.

I know some of you will raise an eyebrow when you see what’s in this. I definitely did when I researched vegan recipes and saw coconut milk and soy sauce in the cheese sauces!

But here’s my argument — the ‘soy’ (or coconut aminos) flavor and the nutritional yeast add that slight stinkiness we all love about cheese. I promise you won’t taste any soy at all — just ooey gooey vegan cheesy goodness!

You may decide to only eat one-pot pastas every day for the rest of your life.

I’m sorry and you’re welcome! They’re just so easy and there are so many of them on the site now. This is a new favorite.

It’s addictive!

We recommend portion control and putting some of it away before you eat. Lucas and I both couldn’t stop and had double servings our first time!

Pasta recommendation: Tinkyada (not sponsored)

Of all the gluten-free pastas I’ve tried, Tinkyada leaves the most starch in the water — a good thing for this recipe! The starch thickens the sauce which makes it even creamier.

Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 shallots, sliced thinly
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon dried crushed rosemary

 

  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 14-oz (400 ml) can full fat coconut milk
  • 400 g GF pasta (4-5 servings), I used tinkyada fusilli 

 

  • 1 8-oz package sliced mushrooms
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 1 tablespoon coconut aminos or gluten-free tamari
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 large handfuls of spinach
  • Black pepper and lemon juice to taste

Instructions

  1. Heat oil in a 5 quart Dutch oven. Add shallots and sautée for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring on occasion.
  2. Add garlic, crushed red pepper, and rosemary. Sauté for two minutes stirring constantly. Then add broth, coconut milk and pasta. Pat the top of the pasta down so it’s mostly submerged.
  3. Bring to a low boil and allow to cook for five minutes with the lid partly covering.
  4. Add mushrooms, nutritional yeast, coconut aminos (or GF tamari), and salt. Allow to cook for an additional five minutes or until pasta is al dente, stirring on occasion.
  5. Remove from heat. Add spinach and stir into the pasta to wilt. Serve warm with black pepper and lemon juice to taste.

Notes

Pasta recommendation: Tinkyada (not sponsored). Of all the gluten-free pastas I’ve tried, Tinkyada leaves the most starch in the water — a good thing for this recipe! The starch thickens the sauce which makes it even creamier.

Lemon juice adds that extra kick to this already tasty recipe! Add just before serving, or serve with lemon wedges on the side.
