Video-Recipe: Vegan Penne A La Vodka (Gluten-free)

By  

Kris Carr is going to show you how to make vegan penne a la vodka, a rich, creamy gluten-free vegan pasta recipe with a splash of vodka!

It’s super easy to make and it’s ideal for those days where you just don’t have much time to spend in the kitchen:

Time: 20-30 minutes

Ingredients:
Brown rice pasta [HealthQueens comment: make sure you use this brown pasta, and not the white pasta]
1 jar of your favorite pasta sauce
2-3 cloves minced garlic
1 cup frozen organic peas
2 heaping tablespoons capers
¼ – ½ cup raw, unsalted cashews [HealthQueens comment: feel free to add superfoods here like ground flaxseed or chia seeds]
½-1 cup water (to blend cashews)
Drizzle of olive oil (optional)
Splash of vodka (2-4 cap fulls or an ⅛ of a cup) [HealthQueens comment: If you prefer to not use the vodka, that’s totally fine]
Salt & pepper to taste

Instructions:

Bring water to a boil and add a dash of salt to keep the pasta from sticking. Once the water is bubbling, add the pasta. Follow the directions on the package; it should take about 12 minutes or so.

To make the sauce, use your favorite jarred marinara as the base. Pour into a saucepan and add the garlic, peas, capers, plus a drizzle of olive oil and splash of vodka.

In a high-speed blender, blend the cashews and water until they are creamy. Add more or less water to suit your desires. Pour the cashew cream into the sauce and stir.

Cook on medium to low heat for about 15 minutes. Bathe the sauce all over the pasta and serve with a bright and tasty salad. (source)
