Protein Pasta with Oven-Baked Vegan Feta & Bell Pepper Sauce

with deep roasted flavors

By: Anne-Sophie Hoffman
Here’s a recipe for all the protein pasta lovers who want to upgrade from the jars of tomato sauce. This spicy bell pepper sauce is topped with homemade, oven-baked, vegan feta. How irresistible is that?

Preparation

  • Soak the almonds and cashews in water overnight.
  • The next day: Preheat the oven to 180° C.
  • Put the soaked nuts, lemon juice, oil, garlic, yeast flakes, and salt into a high-powered blender. Blend until smooth.
  • Wrap the blend up in a clean kitchen towel. Twist all edges together to seal it, and squeeze gently to remove extra liquid.
  • Put the solids of the nut mix into a small baking dish.
  • Cover the nut mix with a bit of olive oil and the mix of dried herbs.
  • Bake the vegan feta for 30 minutes at 180° C until it starts to turn a lovely golden-brown.
  • Meanwhile, remove the seeds, membranes, and stems from the peppers, and cut the flesh into large pieces.
  • Cut the onions and garlic into large cubes.
  • Place a piece of parchment paper on top of a baking sheet. Put the vegetables onto it, cover with oil, and roast at 180°C for 15-20 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, cook the Protein Pasta according to the instructions on the package.
  • Put the roasted vegetables and other ingredients for the bell pepper sauce into the blender. Puree until smooth.
  • Mix the Protein Pasta and the bell pepper sauce together.
  • Crumble the vegan feta and top the pasta with it.
  • Serve with fresh herbs if desired.
  • Enjoy!
