Steps to make Beet pasta sauce recipe

  1. Cook the beet

    Cook the beet. We recommend steaming it for around 20 minutes, then peeling it once it cools down. You can also boil it, but it will preserve more of it’s nutrients if you steam it.

  2. Blend all the ingredients together

    Add all the ingredients (beet, cashews, garlic, water and salt) to a blender and blend them at high speed for around 60 seconds, or until the mix is smooth.

That’s it! Your beet sauce is now ready to go with any pasta of your choosing. We recommend you try it with some kind of unstuffed pasta first, to get to know it’s unique flavor, and then venture into mixing it with some stuffed pasta if you feel like it.

Remember that, as long as the pasta you choose is vegan, your dish will also be 100% vegan, since this sauce has not animal-based ingredients.
