Ingredients

  • 4 portions pasta (ensure gluten-free if necessary - I used brown rice spaghetti)
  • 1 onion, roughly chopped
  • 2 unpeeled garlic cloves
  • 1 red pepper, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon oil (coconut, vegetable, rapeseed or olive)
  • 1 teaspoon sweet paprika
  • Pinch cayenne chilli pepper, to taste
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 400 g (14oz) tin of white beans, drained and rinsed (cannellini, haricot or butter beans)
  • 300 ml (1 1/4 cup) unsweetened almond milk (or sub unsweetened oat milk for a nut-free version)
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • Salt + pepper, to taste

To serve (optional):

  • Steamed greens (spinach, kale, broccoli etc)
  • Pine nuts
  • Fresh parsley or basil

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius (350 degrees Fahrenheit)
  • Cook pasta according to instructions on packet
  • Place the onion, garlic and red pepper on a baking tray lined with greaseproof baking paper and drizzle over the oil
  • Bake in oven for around 15 minutes, until softened and slightly browned
  • Peel the roasted garlic and place in a food processor or blender (a hand-held stick blender also works) with the roasted onion and red pepper
  • Add the paprika, cayenne, oregano, lemon juice and white beans, and whizz until completely smooth
  • Place this blended sauce in a pan (you could use the same one you used to cook the pasta), add the almond milk, nutritional yeast and salt + pepper and bring to the boil
  • Add the cooked pasta and mix well
  • Enjoy immediately, with steamed greens, pine nuts and fresh parsley or basil, if desired
