Alternative ways to make this recipe:

If you don’t have miso at home or have allergies to soybeans, you can replace the miso with a dash of soy sauce or tahini sauce to add that umami flavor. However, I highly recommend keeping the ingredients as close to the recipe as possible. Unless you absolutely have to.

Miso Pasta

Miso is a staple ingredient in Japanese cooking. It is made from fermented soybean paste that is mixed with a mold called, Koji – a fermented mold cultivated from rice, barley, or soybeans. Fermented foods are super beneficial for diversifying your gut bacteria, contributing to building a strong immune system, and improving your body’s digestive tracts. Miso creates that rich and savory flavor without using any meat.

How many servings does this make?

  3. Meanwhile, heat 2 tbsp olive oil, and 2 tbsp melted butter in a large pan over high heat. In batches add mushrooms and cook for 3-5 minutes until nicely browned. Moving them to the side to add each batch. Add a little pasta water as needed to deglaze the pan.
  4. Add garlic, pepper and chili flakes, and cook until fragrant, and just before the garlic begins to brown, again deglazing the pan with pasta water as required.
  5. In a blender or bowl whisk/blend together, vegg powder, ¾ reserved pasta water, dairy-free cheese, and 1 tbsp miso paste.
  6. Add pasta from the pot to the mushrooms and stir in the vegg/miso mixture with more reserved pasta water as needed until it is rich and creamy. Remove from the heat. The sauce will continue to thicken as it cools.
