Creamy Mushrooms Pasta Sauce

I made up this recipe because we wanted a quick filling meal and didn’t have a lot of ingredients in the house.  It’s a really easy and quick recipe that can be made in the time that it takes to cook some pasta.  It’s creamy, mushroomy and delicious.  I use a Kallo mushroom stock cube in it.  If you can’t get mushroom stock cubes you could use a vegetable stock cube, and/or add some liquid mushroom stock or the water from soaking dried mushrooms to the sauce and use a bit less soy milk.  If you soak dried mushrooms then you could also add those to the sauce too!

 

 

Ingredients:

  • 500g dried pasta (gluten-free if required)
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • 200g mushrooms
  • 500 ml unsweetened soy milk or other plant milk
  • 1 mushroom stock cube (I use Kallo brand)
  • 1 flat teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 heaped tablespoon plain flour (gluten-free if required)
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Pine nuts (optional)

How it’s made:

  • Put the pasta on to cook, according to packet instructions.
  • Slice the mushrooms.
  • Fry the mushrooms in the olive oil on a medium heat for five minutes or so, stirring occasionally.
  • Add the soy milk, crumbled stock cube and thyme.
  • Add the flour and stir until mixed in.
  • Simmer for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until the sauce has reduced and thickened.
  • When the pasta is cooked, drain and rinse.  Stir through the sauce and heat through.
  • Serve the pasta sprinkled with black pepper and pine nuts.
