Pink pasta sauce, who knew that was a thing? Well, i don’t know if it is a “thing” yet… but it looks good and tastes good as well, so what’s not to love!
I am definitely not the first to come up with this idea, so i am not taking any credit for it… but i didn’t follow any recipe. Infact, it wasn’t until i realised what a great idea it was and began making this sauce that i realised others had made it before me, haha!
You can make a beetroot pesto pasta sauce, however i made a beetroot-hummus type of pasta sauce. With a little twist anyway.
I had premade hummus which i used as the base of my sauce. For the hummus recipe, click HERE
I used bean pasta, which i cooked while making the sauce.
For the sauce recipe:
Premade hummus, OR you can just add the hummus ingredients to your mixer, as well as the rest of the sauce ingredients!
2 chopped and precooked beetroots
3 garlic cloves
c.a 50-100ml oat cream
a whole lot of nutritional yeast
Salt and pepper
c.a 1 tbs(15ml) oil
Mix all the sauce ingredients together in an electric mixer until smooth & add to your cooked pasta! Top with extra nooch or salt, and add some tofu or broccoli to your pasta 🙂
As simple as that 🙂
If you have raw/uncooked beetroots, you can just peel them and roast them in the oven (in small pieces with some oil and salt) for c.a 30-45minutes until soft, and then just add them to your sauce mix!
Also if you want to know…. is bean pasta really better than regular white pasta, click THIS link to read my post.
