Creamy Celery Pasta Recipe

This creamy celery pasta recipe is a tasty flavorful sauce made with sauteed celery, vegetables, spices, and coconut milk tossed with long linguine noodles. A easy weeknight pasta recipe that is ready in about 30 minutes, and is a great way to use up extra celery.

I love tossing long strands of pasta in this creamy celery sauce, but you can use a short or medium pasta  you have on hand. Serve with a giant spinach avocado salad & whole wheat garlic knots for a complete tasty meal.

I always stock up on celery when it’s on sale or there’s a special in my Misfits Market box! And when I have extra celery, I love whipping up this thick, creamy plant-based sauce to toss with pasta. It’s a tasty dinner with loads of flavor, and is simple to make.

I love the earthy flavor of celery, and when it’s cooked and blended in this sauce, it’s very reminiscent of a cream of celery soup – but better and with much more flavor. This recipe is a great way to use up any extra celery you have on hand – including the leaves!

How Do You Make Celery Sauce for Pasta?

  1. In a large pot, cook pasta according to package instructions. Drain and set aside.
  2. In the same pot, add the olive oil, onions, garlic, and celery, and sauté over medium heat for 7 to 8 minutes until the vegetables have started to soften and the celery has begun to brown. Remove 2 tablespoons of celery from the pot, to save for garnish.
  3. Add the nutritional yeast, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Add coconut milk, and simmer for 20 minutes until vegetables are tender.
  4. Using an immersion blender (or by transferring small batches to a stand blender) blend the sauce until creamy.
  5. Add the cooked pasta back to the pot, and cook until hot. Serve the hot pasta in a dish or bowl, and garnish with the reserved sauteed celery and vegan Parmesan cheese if desired. Enjoy!

Make Celery Pasta Vegan & Vegetarian for a Plant-Based Version

This vegetarian pasta is a simple way to get extra veggies in your diet. I’m all about making recipes plant-based when I can. Vegetarian cooking does NOT have to be bland, boring, or flavorless… It’s quite the opposite when done right. 

By building meals around vegetarian pantry staples and swapping in a few plant-based ingredients you can make better meals for you and your family. I made a list of my 125 favorite vegan pantry ingredients that we use on a weekly basis, and check out all my vegetarian recipes here that are on The Herbeevore. These easy and yummy recipes are fantastic meatless meals for your table.
