Servings 2


  • 4 cups Plain unflavored plant milk
  • 1 cup Coconut Milk
  • 8 ounces Pasta cavatelli
  • 2 tablespoon Nutritional Yeast
  • 1/2 teaspoon Tumeric
  • 1 teaspoon White Miso Paste
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 2 teaspoon Onion Powder
  • 1 tablespoon Arrowroot Starch or cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon Lemon Juice 1/2
  • Chopped Parsley optional


  • In a large pot, whisk together plant milk, tumeric, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and white miso paste. Bring to boil.

  • While pasta is cooking, heat coconut milk in the microwave. Wisk arrowroot starch into coconut milk.
  • Stir coconut milk mixture, nutritional yeast and lemon juice into pasta. Continue to cook, stirring frequently for another 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Sprinkle with chopped parsley (optional).


MAKE IT GLUTTEN-FREE: Use Gluten-free pasta to make this dish gluten-free.
*GREENIER VERSION: During the last 2-3 minutes of boiling the pasta, add 1 cup of small, chopped broccoli florets. Proceed with the rest of the recipe as directed.
**MISO: Miso is an incredible addition to vegan cheese sauces. It’s an all-in-1 ingredient to add saltiness, depth, and that touch of sweetness that’s ideal for replicating the flavour of dairy.
***SERVING: This recipe yields 15 grams of protein for each serving.
