🍁🍂 Hello and welcome to day five of Blogtober! Today’s recipe is great for a family meal as it caters for the non-vegans too. It’s so rich and creamy, they will never know that it contains no weird cow hormones or traces of antibiotics that you would normally find in dairy products. It would also work for a date night as it is quite special, you just need to halve the ingredients as this recipe serves four 😊😊😊😊
What you will need:
-150g tagliatelle per person (choose dried corn or rice pasta to avoid any pesky eggs getting in there)
– 1 onion
– 3 carrots
– 1 leek
– a handful of button mushrooms
– 1.5 tsp dried thyme
– 1/2 tsp herbes de Provence
– 1/2 cube of veggie stock
– 1 cup of white wine
– 3 tbsp nutritional yeast
– 300ml rice milk
– salt and pepper to taste
– basil/parsley to garnish (optional)
Thinly slice the onion and peel and chop the carrots. Add these to a pan of boiling water (about 150ml) and turn the heat down to simmer. When the onion becomes translucent, chop the mushrooms and leek and add them to the pan. Add the herbs and the wine and let it reduce down for about 3-4 minutes.
Add the nutritional yeast, rice milk and the halved stock cube to the pan and let it simmer on a low to medium heat until it becomes a creamy texture perfect for a pasta sauce. This should take around 15 minutes. The longer you leave it, the tastier this will be. Make sure you season with salt and pepper and taste as you go. When you are waiting for this to cook, boil your pasta as directed on the packet.
When your pasta is drained and ready, pour your sauce over it and mix well. Garnish with your chosen fresh herbs and serve 👌🏻

*Rewired isn’t going to count the calories in this dish because there are not enough in it to worry about.
*The ingredients in this delicious dinner have many health benefits and I will list just a few:
– Thyme is a wonderful thing. It has antioxidant properties and contains many flavonoids which help the antioxidants work their magic. It is also an anti inflammatory and antibacterial so is great for your digestive health and can get rid of nasty gas.
– Nutritional yeast is a godsend for vegans. It contains vitamin B12 which is vital as you can’t get it anywhere else other than meat or through shots at the doctors. It is antibacterial, antiviral and also boosts your immune system.
– Rice milk contains almost as much protein as cows milk but doesn’t come with the cholesterol, lactose, hormones or antibiotics – win.
So there you have it. It’s really quite simple but tastes absolutely lovely.
