Creamy Pumpkin Pasta With Fried Sage [Vegan, Gluten-Free]



Cook Time



  • 1 14-ounces gluten-free pasta of choice
  • 5 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 cup white onion
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 cup pumpkin purée
  • 1 cup cooked cauliflower
  • 1/2 cup raw cashews, soaked overnight & drained
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1 teaspoon fresh sage
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • Leaves from 1 small bunch of sage
  • 1 tablespoon vegan butter


  1. Prepare your pasta according to the packaging instructions.
  2. In a pan over medium heat, add in the onions and garlic. Sautée until fragrant and the onions are translucent, about 3-4 minutes. Once cooked, add them into a high-speed blender, along with the remaining ingredients.
  3. Blend until smooth and pour over cooked pasta.
  4. Line a small plate with paper towel. In a small pan, add in the vegan butter and allow it to melt and warm through. Add in the sage leaves, and sizzle until crispy and fragrant, about 1 – 2 minutes. Remove the sage and add it onto the lined plate to cool and drain off excess oil.
  5. Divide pasta, top with fried sage, and dig in!
