Pasta with Chipotle Cashew and Almond Cream! (Vegan)

Print Friendly and PDF

I had this recipe in my mind for a while now after I saw it at Vaishali's Holy Cow Vegan Recipes!. I used a cup of cashews and 1/2 cup almonds soaked 6 hours and blended them with one chipotle chili and some of the sauce. The sauce was nuttier and not as silky smooth because of the almonds. Use only cashews for silky creamy sauce! Also for spicier version, use another chili. Hubbs added some more sauce and chili to his serving!

Pasta used is vegetable Fusilli. There's green spinach, red tomatoes and orange carrots Fusilli. Any pasta that works with creamy sauces will work! I added some onions, tomatoes, garlic and bell peppers for the veggies! I wanted to serve it with some fresh Tomato Salsa on top! but the pasta was gone before the serving ritual could be completed! This one a very forgiving and flexible recipe! Try it!


  1. I'm sure this tastes as heavenly as it looks! Love the colors too.

  2. Thanks Krithi for dropping by. I am waiting for your pancake round up to bookmark some recipes!

    Thanks Ruchi.. It does taste great.. the smoky chipotle and the nutty cream, a great fusion!
