Ingredients 1 small yellow onion 280 g cremini mushrooms 225 g dry rotini pasta 4 cups imitation “beef-flavored” broth 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 85 g cashew butter 1 tablespoon lemon juice 1/4 – 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt 2 tablespoons parsley, chopped
Directions Sauté the Onion: add 1/4 cup (60 ml) of water to a large pot over medium heat. Add in the sliced onions and cook until translucent, about 3 to 5 minutes. You can also sauté the onions in 1 tablespoon of oil instead of water, if you wish.
Cook the Pasta: add in the pasta, mushrooms, beef-flavored broth, nutritional yeast, and black pepper. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce the heat to medium-low and let simmer for 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally to ensure nothing sticks to the bottom of the pan.
Make it Creamy: turn the heat off, then stir in the cashew butter and lemon juice until everything is well incorporated. Taste the pasta and add any additional salt, if necessary.
Serve: top with freshly chopped parsley and black pepper, and serve warm. Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to one week.
