Creamy pasta with seitan

This recipe really couldn’t be easier. The cashew creme is the product of my first failed attempt at making cashew cheese. If all failures will be this tasty then YAY!

This dish is really rich and creamy with a load of protein – and wicked good comfort food!

Cashew Creme

  • 1 cup raw cashews
  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 3 cups water, salted

Soak raw cashews overnight in salted water. Drain soaking water and reserve. Blend soaked cashews and nutritional yeast in a blender or food processor, adding enough soaking water to achieve a thick and creamy consistency.

  • pasta
  • 1 package seitan
  • 1/2 chopped red onion
  • olive oil
  • salt, pepper to taste

Cook pasta according to directions.

Saute onion and seitan in a non-stick skillet with 1 tbsp olive oil until both are carmelized. Browning brings out the flavor!

Add cooked pasta to skillet. Toss with cashew cream. Add salt and pepper to taste.
