Red Pepper and Walnut Sauce

I can’t believe it’s been almost six months already since the last time I posted a new recipe… to the few people that follow this blog, I’m sorry! Anyway, here’s a delicious pasta that has a taste that’s slightly similar to muhammara. I hope that the tastiness of this recipe (and the easiness to make it) makes up for my extremely long absence!

Red Pepper and Walnut Sauce

Ingredients (serves 2)

  • 50ml extra virgin olive oil
  • chili peppers (to taste)
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 100g walnuts
  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 25ml oat cream
  • 400g pasta

Preparation (30 minutes)

  1. Bring a pot full of water and some salta to a boil
  2. While you’re waiting for the water to boil, put all the ingredients except for the pasta in a blender and blend until smooth (if you like your sauce to be more crunchy, add the nuts last; if you prefer it smoother, add the walnuts and olive oil first and the rest after then nuts have already been blended)
  3. When the water is boiling, add the pasta. Stir every 2 minutes or so, and about 1 minute before what it says on the pack taste it, generally it’ll be ready
  4. Drain the pasta, throw it back in the pot, add the sauce, and enjoy!
