VEGAN CREAMY CHIPOTLE PASTA

I am obsessed with this creamy chipotle pasta. The sauce is so easy to make and pretty amazing when you realize that a couple of almonds can make a beautiful cream sauce. The smokiness of the chipotle and the acidity of the lemon juice make it irresistible.



Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup Almonds, whole, raw
  • 1/4 cup Almond milk, unsweetened (or vegetable oil)
  • 1 Chipotle pepper in Adobo, (only one of the peppers in the can)
  • 1 clove Garlic
  • 3/4 cup Water
  • 1/2 cup Tomato, fire roasted, canned
  • 1 tbsp. Lemon juice, fresh
  • 1/2 lb. Spaghetti, whole wheat
  • 1 tbsp. Cilantro chopped

Preparation

  1. Place the almonds, almond milk, water, chipotle, garlic clove, roasted tomato, and lemon juice in a blender and process until smooth. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Boil pasta according to the instructions on the box. Drain and place in a large bowl.
  3. Pour chipotle sauce over pasta and mix well.
  4. Serve with chopped cilantro on top.

Chef's Notes

This sauce is best served immediately. Use oil instead of almond milk for a creamier sauce.
If you do not have a high powered blender: Pour boiling water on top of almonds and let sit overnight.  Remove skins by pressing the almond between your fingers. The skin should pop off easily. Reduce the amount of water in the recipe to 1/4 cup, then add more if needed to adjust consistency.
