Creamy Sun-Dried Tomato Almond Butter Pasta

Serves: 6


  • 1/2 cup packed sun-dried tomatoes*
  • 1 cup vegetable broth
  • 3 tablespoons creamy almond butter
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil, optional**
  • 3/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast, optional
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
  • 1 lb dried pasta, cooked to serve


  1. For the sauce: Place all ingredients except for basil and pasta in the jar of a high-speed blender. Purée until completely smooth. Add the basil and turn the blender on low just to distribute.***
  2. Toss as much sauce as desired with cooked pasta and a little of the starchy cooking water, if needed. Serve!


*If using sun-dried tomatoes that are NOT packed in oil, then you will want to soak them in boiling water for at least 15 minutes. Do not boil them—soak them in the boiled water. Or you can heat the vegetable broth and soak them in that, and then use the vegetable broth in the sauce for the added flavor from the sun-dried tomato soaking liquid.

**You don’t need the extra tablespoon of oil if you used sun-dried tomatoes that are jarred in oil. You can omit it completely if you’d like, but the sauce will be less rich.

***This actually makes quite a bit of sauce. I split mine in half and put the rest in a Tupperware in the freezer for another night.
