This vegan lemon pasta sauce recipe is a total plant-based comfort food, that is so much healthier than a restaurant sauce. I absolutely love creamy pastas, and I can’t believe it took me so long to come up with this lemon version. This creamy decadent pasta is ready in about 20 minutes, and the sauce is made right in the blender.

We gave this one a full 10/10 for flavor!  It was SO good with a big side salad and garlic bread. This is a fantastic weeknight meal, great for making after work or when you’re short on time.

Make Lemon Pasta Vegan for a Healthy Version

This vegan lemon pasta sauce is a simple way to get extra veggies in your diet. I’m all about making recipes plant-based when I can. Vegan cooking does NOT have to be bland, boring, or flavorless… It’s quite the opposite when done right. By building meals around vegan pantry staples and swapping in a few plant-based ingredients you can make healthier 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 vegan recipes here that are on The Herbeevore. These easy and healthy recipes are fantastic meatless and dairy free meals for your table.

The Best Blender for the Job

I’ve owned a lot of blenders, but my Vitamix is definitely the best one I’ve owned. This high-speed blender will blend even the toughest of ingredients into pulp.  I prefer using my blender to my food processor for sauces like this or homemade hummus, as it’s much easier to clean the Vitamix. This is definitely one kitchen appliance we use on a daily basis!

How Do I Make Vegan Lemon Pasta Sauce Recipe?

  1. In a pot, heat the olive oil over low heat. Add the garlic and onions, and sauté on low heat for 7 to 8 minutes until the vegetables have softened.  Add the cashews, tofu, salt, nutritional yeast, lemon zest and juice, and vegetable stock. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer sauce for 20 minutes.
  2. Bring another large pot of water to a boil, and cook pasta according to package directions.  Once cooked, drain and set aside.
  3. Once sauce has finished cooking, carefully transfer to a blender and blend on medium to high until the sauce is creamy.
  4. Drain the pasta and toss with the sauce. Stir in parsley and top with extra pepper and chili flakes. Enjoy!
