Traditional creamy mushroom sauces usually contain butter, heavy cream and cheese. This version is vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free and made with clean, healthy ingredients.

Ingredients

1lb cooked organic pasta (16 ounces, gluten-free, if necessary)
For the asparagus
12 stalks organic asparagus (diced)
2 teaspoons organic extra-virgin olive oil
2 cloves organic garlic (freshly crushed)
1 – 2 pinch Himalayan pink salt

For the sauce
4 cups organic cremini mushrooms (or white button mushrooms)
1 1/2 cup organic cashews
1 1/2 cup distilled/purified water
4 cloves organic garlic (freshly crushed)
2 tablespoons organic shallots (diced)
1 1/2 teaspoon organic dried rosemary
1 tablespoon organic extra-virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon Himalayan pink salt

Directions

Prepare the pasta: Prepare the pasta according to the package directions. Set aside.

Prepare the asparagus: In a skillet, add all the ingredients for the asparagus (diced asparagus, olive oil, garlic, Himalayan pink salt) and saute on high heat for 2 – 3 minutes. Set aside.

Prepare the sauce: Add all the ingredients for the mushroom sauce to a Vitamix and blend until creamy and smooth. Adjust seasonings, if needed.

Assembly: In a large mixing bowl, add the cooked pasta, diced/sauteed asparagus and mushroom sauce together and gently toss until it is well combined.

Best when served immediately.
