When it comes to weeknight meals or just meals in general, I am a huge believer in making things easy in the kitchen and creating confidence in the kitchen regardless of your skill level. Pasta dishes are one of my faves to make, especially when I can fully enjoy them because they are dairy-free or vegan.
I'm so excited to be sharing this dish with you guys because many of you have been loving my pasta dishes and have been wanting more. Haha. Hey, I don't blame you.
This particular dish was very much inspired by my Vegan Tuscan Kale Chickpea Soup, which has been my go-to recipe in the beginning of this pandemic.

If you’ve been an avid follower of Orchids + Sweet Tea, then you know that I’ve shared many vegan recipes on this blog.
Lately, I’ve been asked for advice on keeping things interesting, especially when eating a plant-based or vegan diet. While I’m not a total Herbivore, my family and I make a commitment to eating most things that are Vegan.
To start, I’d recommend reading our latest article, How to Best Transition into a Plant-Based or Vegan Diet, which best explains how to keep your focus and continue on with eating healthy. Secondly, my best advice for anyone is EXPERIMENT, EXPERIMENT, EXPERIMENT!
And yes, I had to type that in capital letters. Haha. Seriously, it’s so important to try different ingredients and even different ways to make your favorite ones.
This Easy Vegan Broccoli Alfredo Pasta is the perfect easy weekday meal or perhaps something simple for a laid-back weekend. Based with a creamy, flavorful Alfredo sauce made from cauliflower and cashews; and tossed with delicious broccoli. Completely dairy-free and vegan. Made in just 25 minutes!
The herb-roasted tomatoes offer a delicious umami-packed flavor foundation for the creamy chicken dish.
You can make them ahead of time in the oven, then keep the tomatoes in the fridge unit you’re ready to make the chicken. They’ll stay fresh for up to three days in an airtight container.
When it comes to vegetables, there are so many benefits as we all know. While some veggies pack a greater punch when it comes to nutrients, we’ve curated a special list of our Our Top 12 Favorite Healthy Green Leafy Vegetables! Most of these are super popular while others are under utilized in many dishes. Lettuce Eat, Shall We?
When it comes to most pasta dishes, I often enjoy them with a side of bread of some sort. Most times, I make my own homemade Garlic Bread, however, you can choose to spruce things up with many other options such as:
I found a great article at The Kitchn which includes a few delicious examples of these!
Ok, so when it comes to making this Vegan Tuscan Pasta dish, I chose to keep ingredients minimal for ease.
For starters, you need your favorite dry pasta (I used Organic Penne Pasta). Of course, the sauce is the 'star' of this dish, therefore, the following ingredients are super important: raw cashews, vegetable broth, nutritional yeast, lemon juice, garlic cloves, white wine, and seasonings.
Lastly, you add your kale and tomatoes and BAM! You're good to go!
Of course, you can always search our Vegan Lunch/Dinner archives for more deliciousness!
