Vegan Creamy Pasta

Vegan creamy pasta in spicy avocado sauce, topped with caramelized mushrooms, onions, snow peas, crunchy radish and juicy tomatoes.

After making the delicious Garlic Shrimp Pasta, I decided to make a healthier vegan alternative to make this pasta dish.

Vegan Creamy Pasta

This Vegan Creamy Pasta will satisfy your hunger, while its still light on your waist due to all those amazing veggies. I absolutely love the taste of the delicious Veggie Pasta in combination with all these beautiful veggies. The creamy avocado sauce is definitely a staple in our house, made with roasted jalapenos and garlic. Because the sauce is flavorful and fragrant.

In addition, I am a huge fan of caramelized mushrooms. They add the perfect amount of chewiness and earthiness to this Vegan Creamy Pasta. Also, they compliment nicely the caramelized onions. The snow peas and radishes add such a fun crunch and a beautiful rainbow of colors to the dish. The juicy tomatoes are the perfect sweet finish. You can totally go ahead and sprinkle some grated fresh Parmesan on top for some cheese action. I kept this version vegan, as it was perfect this way.

Your recipe calls for SUGAR SNAPS, but you show SNOWPEAS in all of your photos. Was that intentional? I love both veggies! When I make this, I may use them boyh.

Hi, it was not intentional :) it was my error, thanks and I corrected the wording :) I used snow peas, somehow I ended up typing sugar snaps :)
