Easy peanut butter pasta

Bored of pasta with tomato sauce? I love pasta but I wanted to try something else that's delicious, easy and super quick to make. This peanut butter pasta is so yummy and you can get all ingredients in your local supermarket. So this is also a great recipe to make when you are on holidays and don't have your usual vegan creature comfort foods available. It's also a perfect quick weekday meal when you come home from work or from the gym and you just want something quick and nourishing without spending ages in the kitchen. In fact you can make this dish in as quickly as 10 minutes!

Step 1:

Cook your pasta of choice according to package instructions.


Step 2:

Finely chop up 1/2 onion, 200g brown mushrooms and finely mince a handful of sun-dried tomatoes in oil. Then add all to a pan and fry until the onion softens and the mushrooms are fully cooked. I found there was no need to add further oil as the sun-dried tomatoes were oily enough.


Step 3:

Finally add 2 heaped unsweetened tbsp peanut butter, 1 1/2 tbsp unsweetened soy sauce (or to taste), 1 tsp of garlic and cracked pepper to taste. If the sauce gets a bit too dry you can always add a little bit of water to it as well (that wasn't necessary in my case because the mushrooms released quite a lot of water).

Stir with a wooden spoon and then mix in the cooked pasta. Serve with a refreshing mixed salad on the side. Enjoy!
