Creamy Roasted Red Pepper Sauce

Creamy Roasted Red Pepper Sauce - guesswhoscooking.com. Vegan, low carb, healthy.

Make this creamy yet non-dairy/vegan pasta sauce and use however you’d like! I recommend making it with zucchini pasta (instructions below). I’ll try to take a better picture next time I make it. I used the grater blade of my food processor to make these short zucchini noodles in a snap.

Creamy Red Pepper Pasta Sauce

This creamy pasta sauce is vegan and low-carb. It is delicious when served over zucchini noodles.

Ingredients

  • 1 jar roasted red peppers (7.5 oz drained weight, or 2 roasted bell peppers)
  • 1 cup unsweetened plain coconut milk
  • 1/3 cup onion (diced)
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic (minced)
  • 1-2 tablespoon corn starch
  • salt to taste

Directions

Step 1
Heat a small saute pan over medium heat. Add olive oil, then onions. Stir occasionally and cook for 3-4 minutes or until onions start to become translucent. Add garlic and cook for 30-60 seconds. Set aside.
Step 2
In a food processor, combine all ingredients except corn starch. Puree until smooth.
Step 3
Heat a saucepan or large saute pan over medium-low heat. Add red pepper puree. Dissolve 1 tablespoon corn starch in 1 tablespoon cold water and stir to combine, then set aside. Heat sauce, stirring occasionally, until it starts to bubble. Reduce heat to a simmer, then add corn starch mixture and stir well. Add another tablespoon of corn starch dissolved in 1 tablespoon water for thicker consistency. Heat until thoroughly heated and thickened to desired consistency.

If you are preparing this sauce with zucchini pasta, shred 4 medium zucchinis. Combine the pureed sauce and shredded zucchini in a large pan. Heat over medium heat and stir occasionally until zucchini starts to become slightly translucent and al dente. Dissolve corn starch in 1 tablespoon cold water and stir to combine. Heat sauce and zucchini, stirring occasionally, until it starts to bubble. Reduce heat to a simmer, then add corn starch mixture and stir well. Heat until thoroughly heated and thickened to desired consistency.
