Make White Wine Tomato Sauce Vegan for a Better Version
This vegan white wine tomato 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 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 vegan recipes here that are on The Herbeevore. These easy and tasty recipes are fantastic meatless and dairy free meals for your table.
Which Wine Should I Use For This Pasta Sauce?
I recommend using a good dry wine in this recipe, one that is not too sweet. Make sure you use a good wine that you would drink. A few recommendations are:
- Pinot grigio – I usually use pinot grigio to make my wine pasta sauces. It’s crisp and slightly sweet, which pairs nicely with the tomatoes.
- Chardonnay – I love the buttery oaky flavor of chardonnay wine, which adds a great complexity to this simple sauce.
- Sauvignon blanc: a light wine with a nice acidity and sweetness.

- San Marzano Diced Tomatoes – an essential in any good tomato sauce is getting the best quality canned tomatoes you can find! I always use San Marzano tomatoes for sauces, especially in dishes where tomatoes are the star.
- Olive Oil: I like to use this fruity olive oil which has a fantastic flavor and deep color- it’s really inexpensive online here, so I keep a few liters stocked up in my pantry. For the quality of oil you get, it’s an excellent value, I would highly recommend!
- Garlic: I use fresh garlic when I have it, and this great jarred organic garlic when I don’t have fresh. It’s actually super convenient to have pre-chopped garlic on hand for quick and easy meal prep.
- White Wine – I used a pinot grigio.
- Fresh Basil
- Salt, to taste
If you’re adding a little pepper, I’d recommend…
- Tellicherry Peppercorns: It’s amazing the flavor difference you can get with really good tellicherry black pepper. Amazon has a generic brand tellicherry peppercorn which is the same price is buying pre-ground, and has a million times more flavor… so I use these really great tellicherry peppercorns, which I would definitely recommend.
Add in Veggies If You’d Like
I sometimes add in mushrooms or fresh spinach to the sauce to pack some extra veggies in there.
But most of the time its just these simple ingredients, and a generous sauce-to-noodle ratio where I’m eating mostly sauce to go with a little bit of pasta.
How Do I Make Pasta Sauce with Wine?
1. Finely chop the garlic, and julienne the basil. Set aside.
2. In a large saucepan, add the olive oil and begin by sautéing the garlic over low heat. Once it gets lightly brown and sauté for 3 minutes until the leaves are wilted slightly.
3. Add the can of tomatoes, juice and all. Also add the white wine and the basil. Stir until all ingredients are mixed and simmer in low for 25 minutes!
4. One little trick I did was about 15 minutes in to cooking. I added half of the tomatoes into my Vitamix and blended the tomatoes for a bit to give it a smoother texture. Then added it back to the pan!
Toss with freshly cooked pasta, and enjoy.
