Creamy Mushroom Protein Pasta With Sage and Truffle


Prep Time

Prep Notes


This protein pasta recipe is really simple and delicious. If you were to try the pasta you would think it has loads of butter or cream. But nope! I used little vegan cream cheese and whole lotta cauliflower to make it creamy! I finished the pasta with a drizzle of truffle oil which worked so well with mushrooms and sage.


I used protein pasta Banza  (chickpea based) but you can use any pasta of your liking it will come out just as good. I just like the nutrition aspect of this particular pasta and that’s why I prefer it.


I hope you enjoy this pasta dish as much as I did!

1/2 cup of shredded carrots

3/4 cup of scallions

Cook pasta according to instructions (I usually cook it for 7 min and it comes out perfectly tender); reserve 1/4 cup of the cooking liquid and drain the rest;


Add pasta and reserved liquid to the mushroom mixture and stir until combined.
