This dish was made after I asked for some inspiration from my lovely followers on Instagram. I had a carton of Oatly cream sitting lonely in the fridge and kept staring at it every day, but couldn’t make up my mind what to make with it.
Someone suggested a creamy pasta dish…. and this recipe was born!
I think mushrooms always work well with creamy pasta sauces so I knew mushrooms were going to feature. I had some broccoli in the fridge and both kids will eat that, so added that in too. Broccoli also goes really well with mushroom.
Onion and garlic are always a great base and with some fresh parsley and nutritional yeast scattered through, you have a quick (ready in 15 minutes!), creamy, tasty pasta dish that you will cook again and again!
How To Make Creamy Vegan Mushroom and Broccoli Pasta
First of all you need to boil your pasta. I have used fusilli in this recipe, however spaghetti would also work really well. If you are following a gluten free diet you can also swap normal pasta for a gluten free version.
Add the broccoli to the pasta pan for the last 5 minutes of cooking.
Whilst the pasta is boiling, chop your onion and garlic very finely, next heat a tbsp of olive oil in a frying pan and fry off the onion and garlic on a low heat for 3-4 minutes.
Chop the mushrooms, add them to the pan and cook for a further 4 minutes, stirring regularly.
After this, add the Oatly cream and nutritional yeast. If you don’t have any nutritional yeast to hand you can leave this out, however it adds a delicious cheesy, nutty flavour.
Once the pasta & broccoli is cooked, drain it and add to the pan with all the other ingredients. Sprinkle in the chopped parsley and mix together well.
Start to finish …. 15 minutes!! Perfect for those busy weeknight dinners.
How Can I Store Leftover Creamy Vegan Mushroom and Broccoli Pasta
You can store any leftover pasta in the fridge for 2-3 days. When you wish to re-heat it, pour a couple of extra tablespoons of Oatly cream over the pasta, you can then either re-heat in the microwave until piping hot or re-heat slowly in a frying pan.
