Pin recipe


For the sauce:
  • 1 sweet potato cubed
  • 1/4 white onion
  • 1 garlic bulb top sliced off
  • drizzle of olive oil
  • 1 block tofu
  • About 1/2-1 cup reserved pasta water
  • 1/4 cup vegan milk of choice
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp dried basil
  • 1/2 tsp dried rosemary
  • 2 tbsp gochujang paste
  • 1/2 lime
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • optional: cayenne to taste
For the pasta
  • 4 servings cooked pasta of your choice
  • Pumpkin seeds


  1. Preheat the oven to 400F (205C). Cube the sweet potato. Add it to a parchment lined baking sheet with the onion and garlic bulb. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle salt and pepper. Bake for 40 minutes or until golden brown and tender.
  2. Cook pasta according to package directions. Reserve pasta water when straining.
  3. Once cooked, remove from oven and let cool slightly. Add the vegetables to a blender, squeeze the garlic out of the bulb and add about 1/2 your pasta water. Add the other ingredients (except for the pasta water) for the sauce and blend on high. Add the additional pasta water or vegan milk until smooth.
  4. Pour over the cooked pasta and toss until coated evenly. Top with pumpkin seeds, paprika or cayenne and enjoy.
