Savory Pumpkin Sauce with Pasta Vegan Plant Based Easy
This Savory Pumpkin Sauce with Sage Chips was too delicious not to share. It’s creamy, robust, complex but also so simple to make, too.
Canned pumpkin was on sale at my local grocery for something like $.39 a can, so now I have a lifetime supply of canned pumpkin. Maybe not a lifetime. But there are a least six cans of pumpkin in my cupboard right now, which could be more than I’ve used thus far … so, do the math.
I put some sage chips on top, which are my new favorite munchie. They’re also super easy to make. Just put them in some hot oil for a few seconds and sprinkle with salt. Mine are a bit too well done. Even though they tasted awesome, they look better with a bit of life left in them. My significant other suggested, “Hey, we can call them charred sage. That’s a good name for a recipe.”
No. It’s not.
Anyway, the difference between sage chips and charred sage is about one second, so watch them carefully.
The pumpkin sauce takes just a few minutes to make. Blend everything until smooth and simmer for until heated through. Pour over cooked pasta. I used this gluten-free conchiglie pasta that I thought was pretty. I also used some Falksalt that was also lovely.
Savory Pumpkin Sauce with Pasta
Easy and delicious. A creamy, robust pumpkin sauce that's perfect for fall.
- 15 oz canned pumpkin
- 1 cup chopped apple
- 1 tablespoon chopped onion
- 1 cup coconut milk or your choice of plant milk
- 1 teaspoon salt adjust to taste
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper adjust to taste
- 1/2 teaspoon rubbed sage
- 8 oz pasta, cooked
In a high-speed blender, puree the pumpkin, apple, coconut milk, salt, pepper, and sage until smooth and creamy.
Pour into a medium saucepan and simmer over medium-high heat until heated through and piping hot. Stir frequently to prevent sticking.
Serve over your choice of pasta and top with sage chips, if desired.
And look what I have! I’ve been looking for “vegan cards” for a while and couldn’t find just the right one. I always let restaurants, groceries, and other sellers know I appreciate the vegan options they offer and wanted something memorable and cute to express my gratitude. So I made these and got to use them at a local place this past weekend. I’ll be offering these here at Planted365 for only the cost of shipping. The more we get the vegan and plant-based word out there, the more options we all have, Win-win.
