Creamy Mushroom Pasta (Vegan Béchamel Sauce)

Diesen Beitrag gibt es auch in:

Hey my lovelies,

You know how much I love pasta in combination with a creamy sauce. And to achieve a little variety on the table and that it does not taste all the same, I have created a new version again.

This time, I made a vegan creamy ‘mushroom sauce’ or ‘béchamel sauce’ from white beans. White beans can be processed in just a few steps and with only a few ingredients, you‘ll get an incredible creamy sauce.

Other great ways to make a vegan cheese-like or creamy sauce, for example, is the recipe for vegan ‘Mac and Cheese‘, which is mainly made of potatoes or for a even faster and easier version the recipe for a vegan ‘Alfredo Sauce‘, which is only based on cashew nuts.

I think all options aren‘t only delicious and healthy, but also really cheap, because vegan milk and cheese alternatives can be quite expensive when you buy them in the supermarket.

This recipe is of course dairy-free and needs only 6 ingredients, many of which can be found in just about every vegan kitchen.

I like the sauce most served with pasta and aromatic fried mushrooms. Of course, you can also add any other vegetables as desired to make this dish complete and nutrient-rich.

And now let’s get to the recipe:

Creamy Mushroom Pasta (Vegan Béchamel Sauce)

    Hi Bianca,

    This recipe looks so tasty. But I usually don’t use soy milk. Would it be okay to substitute soy milk with almond milk?

      Hi Inna,
      Yes sure! You can use plantbased milk of choice ?
      Have fun trying the recipe!
      Much love,
      Bianca ❤️

    Hiya Bianca, was los? Alles klar? 🙂

    I tried this recipe (or one VERY similar to it) last night and although it came out really well, when refrigerated, it becomes a bit of a nightmare to eat the next day because the pasta becomes really clumped together. Any advice to avoid that?

    • Bianca Zapatka 9. June 2018 / 12:03

      Hi Lorey,
      So glad to read that you liked the recipe. However, it’s absolutely normal that pasta gets sticky and clumps together when you place in the fridge overnight. Best is to store the sauce separately in a jar or bowl and cook pasta always fresh. Otherwise you can also combine fresh cooked pasta with a bit of olive oil before placing in the fridge for the next day.
      I hope this helps.
      Much love,
      Bianca ❤️❤️
