How To Make Vegan Creamy Garlic Pasta

Ingredients for Garlic Pasta (Vegan)

  • Garlic
  • Pasta of choice (use gluten-free if desired)
  • Olive oil 
  • Flour (use gluten-free if desired)
  • Coconut milk 
  • Nutritional yeast 
  • Italian seasoning
  • Salt
  • Garlic powder
  • Parsley (dried or fresh, optional)
  • Chickpeas (optional)

How To Make Vegan Creamy Garlic Pasta

Start by cooking your pasta, al dente, according to package instructions. Then, heat oil on a large non-stick pan on medium-high heat.

Add minced garlic and sauté for a couple of minutes. Mix in flour then slowly pour in the coconut milk while stirring. Stir until well-combined. Mix in nutritional yeast, Italian seasoning, salt, garlic powder, and if you’d like dried parsley. Let it come to a soft boil, stirring frequently, then turn it down to a low simmer. 

Once pasta is cooked, drain and add into the creamy garlic sauce, along with the chickpeas if you wish. Toss until well-coated. Let the pasta cook in the pasta sauce for 1-2 minutes longer as the sauce thickens and add salt and pepper to taste. Top with some more parsley as needed and serve.

    Omg this is a banger!!! So simple yet so delicious. Makes me drool just by reading the recipe.
    Perfect for its-Friday-I-don’t-feel-like-cooking-for-hours kind of day. Will def be making this tonight instead of grabbing takeout, like I originally planned. Thanks for the inspo Rose!

    Made this for dinner tonight, delicious. I added broccoli directly to the sauce, though in hindsight I would add it individually to the top off each serving. Thank you so much for making this video, Rose. I have become A junk food vegan, because eating quick is easier than eating healthy. This recipe is exactly what I need to get back on track and meal-prepping.

    I’m obsessed with your cashew Alfredo sauce but I also love how tasty and creamy your garlic pasta dish is! Love adding broccoli for the crunch and nutrition (also the green just pops and looks pretty lol)
