Recipe Card


  • 1 pound fettuccine, or any pasta of choice
  • 1 small yellow onion, finely chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, or avocado oil
  • 1 cup mushrooms, sliced `
  • 1 cup raw cashews
  • 2 cups filtered water
  • 4 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • Parsley, chopped, for garnish
  • Vegan Parmesan, optional


  • Step 1

    Bring a large pot of water to boil. Add a couple tablespoons of salt to the boiling water. Add the fettuccine or your choice of pasta. Cook for 11 minutes or follow the directions on your pasta box.

  • Step 2

    Meanwhile, in a large pan over medium heat, add 2 tablespoons of oil and sauté garlic and onions for 6 minutes. Season with a pinch of salt then add mushrooms and sauté for 7 minutes.

  • Step 3

    In a high speed blender combine raw cashews, you don’t have to soak cashews and 2 cups filtered water. Blend on high speed for 1 minute or until fully smooth. Pour cashew milk over mushrooms and bring heat to low. Simmer for 3 minutes, until sauce begins to thicken slightly.

  • Step 4

    Add the nutritional yeast, salt and pepper to the sauce, mix then once noodles are cooked, using tongs transfer the noodles straight from the pot to the sauce. Add 1/2 cup of hot pasta water to the pasta and mix all together until noodles are fully coated with sauce.

  • Step 5

    Finish off with freshly cracked pepper, a pinch of salt if needed and chopped fresh parsley.

  • Step 6

    *Note: You can add vegan Parmesan on top. If you would like to make the sauce a little more rich, you can add 1-2 tbsp vegan butter, so tasty! Lastly feel free to add any other veggies or add ins besides the mushrooms.
