Pumpkin Sage Pasta (Vegan) 

Pumpkin Sage Pasta (Vegan) |


2 servings whole wheat penne pasta
1/2 yellow onion, diced
1T garlic powder
1C almond milk
1C pumpkin puree
1/2t nutmeg
6-8 fresh sage leaves, slivered (appx. 2-3 tablespoons) OR 1 1/2t dried sage
salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Boil water on the stove and cook your pasta.
  2. While the pasta is cooking, dice your onion, coat in garlic powder and saute for 3-5 minutes over medium heat. Add olive oil or water to keep it from sticking.
  3. Combine onion/garlic mixture in a blender with the pumpkin puree and almond milk. Blend until smooth.
  4. Return sauce to the pan over medium heat, adding nutmeg, salt, pepper and fresh sage leaves.
    Stir constantly, until heated through.
  5. Combine with cooked pasta and enjoy!


I discovered my love of vegan cooking and all things food when I got my first kitchen during my sophomore year of college, so all of the recipes I share are designed to be made in a hurry and on a dime. Although I like to occasionally try adventurous and crazy new recipes, most of my cooking celebrates minimalism and uses five ingredients or less.
