Sweet Potato Red Pepper (Nut Free!) Vegan Mac

Sweet Potato Red Pepper (Nut Free!) Vegan Mac

No matter how "healthy" my life is, pasta will always be a part of it. It's always been a comfort food for me, and this is essentially pasta drowning in veggies so thats #health, am I right?

For this recipe you'll need a large pot to cook pasta, a pan to saute your onion and a high speed blender to blend the sauce!

Ingredients

  • 16 oz pasta of your choice
  • 16 oz jar of roasted red peppers
  • 1/2 white onion
  • 1/2 cup raw shelled hemp seeds
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 large baked sweet potato (or 1 small baked sweet potato)
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric (totally optional, but helps give that cheesy color!)
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • 3/4 cup of water (more or less depending on how creamy you want the sauce)

Instructions

  1. Bake sweet potato at 400 degrees for about 40-50 minutes depending on the size
  2. Bring a large pot of water to boil for pasta and cook according to instructions
  3. While the potato bakes, chop up your onion and saute in a pan with 1 tsp of olive oil
  4. When the onion is translucent, add to the blender with all the remaining ingredients including the baked sweet potato
  5. When the sauce is completely smooth, add it to the pot with cooked pasta and stir. Add pink salt and cracked pepper to your liking!
  6. Optional: stir in spinach, caramelized onions, or any other veggie or protein additions you like!
  7. ENJOY :)
