Vegan Broccoli Cream Taglietelle

“The DH loves this!! This dish is from Feel free to be creative and add more or less of something - very forgiving recipe here! I think you could probably get away with using almond/soy/rice milk for a thinner sauce or blended tofu for a thicker sauce in place of the non-dairy cream...but don't take my word for it (haven't tried doing that yet) :D”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook Pasta according to directions (remember to add salt and olive oil to water). Additionally, boil water in a seperate saucepan for Broccoli. If you are feeling very lazy you can boil the Broccoli in the water for 3-4 minutes when the pasta is about done, or you can steam it for about 5-6 minutes in a colander over the pan, until bright green & very soft. Drain and set aside.
  2. Heat oil in a sauce pan add Garlic, Onions and Pine nuts, and cook for 3-4 minutes or until ingredients start to brown. Add Basil and give it a quick stir.
  3. Add Broccoli and try to crush with a fork or wooden spoon until mushy with some pieces intact, then add Cream and let it simmer for 2 minutes. (Alternatively, you can blitz half the mixture at the end).
  4. Stir in Mustard and let it simmer (don't boil) for another two minutes. At this point you can add some grated soy cheese if you want, but it really doesn't add that much flavor. Season with Salt, and a good helping of fresh Black Pepper.
  5. Combine Pasta and Sauce, serve immediately and dig in!
