This creamy vegan roasted garlic sauce is actually a great opportunity to use any and ALL the veggies you have on hand, which is particularly advantageous when it’s garden season – like right now! Zucchini, fresh herbs, diced tomatoes, peppers of all kinds! We also like adding sun dried tomatoes and sausage-style walnut meat (another easy no-cook recipe).

Ingredients

    For the roasted garlic:
  • 4 large cloves garlic
  • olive oil (for drizzling)
  • pinch of salt
  • For the sauce:
  • 1 16-oz package silken tofu
  • 4 cloves roasted garlic
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp Cheesy Garlic Butter Blend (or sub vegan parmesan or nooch)
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder

Instructions

  1. First, roast your garlic: Heat your oven to 400F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Put your garlic on the baking sheet and drizzle it with the oil lightly. Sprinkle with a pinch of salt and cook for about 5-7 minutes, flipping once. Be sure to keep an eye on it. You want it to be slightly browned. Usually, when you smell it, it's ready!
  2. Next, throw all your ingredients in a blender and blend on high until all ingredients are combined. Pour it over just-cooked pasta, top with your favorite veggies, and enjoy!
