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

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.
