  • 1/2 onion choppedā£
  • 3-5 cloves garlic mincedā£
  • 3 oz sun-dried tomatoes ~1 cup packed, soak in hot water to soften, then strainā£
  • 1 14oz pack firm tofu drained and pressed of liquidā£
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 2 1/2 cups pasta water + broth concentrate (like better than bouillon or just use veggie brothā£)
  • 1/2 lemon juicedā£
  • 1 tsp salt more to tasteā£
  • Lots of pepperā£
  • 12 oz bow tie pastaā£
  • Fresh basil to topā£


  • Cook your pasta as instructed on the packaging. Reserve 3 cups of pasta water before straining. ā£
  • While your pastaā€™s cooking sautĆ© your onion and garlic until translucent. ā£
  • Transfer to a high speed blender the sautĆ©ed onion/garlic, tofu, sun-dried tomatoes, nutritional yeast, lemon juice, salt, pepper, and pasta water/or veggie broth. Blend until smooth, adding more veggie broth if needed. You want the texture to be similar to an alfredo. ā£
  • Pour the sauce over your pasta, taste and adjust the flavor to your liking, adding more salt/pepper if needed. ā£


*this sauce will make a little leftover so you can store it in the fridge and use it up in 3-5 days!*
