Welcome to my Meatless Monday pasta partaaaay, so nice of you to join! It’s a new week, which means you can hit the reset button if you’ve gone off track with your diet and need to start over! No worries, I’ve got you covered. My Vegan Pasta With Veggies & Creamy Cashew Sauce is packed with healthy carbs, hearty plants, and even protein! Kickstart your healthy eating habits with foods that make you happy (pasta). I’m all about eating an abundance of plants but I’m also not afraid of carbs, at least not when they’re nutritious ones like brown rice pasta. Also, are you wondering what this creamy luscious sauce is? It’s just soaked and drained cashews with garlic, unsweetened almond milk, nutritional, yeast, salt, and pepper. Yep, I keep things easy around here at upbeetandkaleingit. Now, let’s see some pictures of this mouthwatering masterpiece.

There are lots of veggies that you could use in this dish! The sauce is really mild, so pretty much anything goes. I chose peas for a little sweetness, cherry tomatoes for a hint of tartness, and mushrooms for their “meaty” texture.
