∙ Serves 2-3
  • 1 2 + 1/4 cup sun dried tomatoes
  • 1 tsp Chilli flakes
  • 4 Garlic gloves, minced (2 tbsp)
  • 1 Onion
  • 1/2 tsp Oregano, dried
  • 2 big handfuls Rocket or baby spinach
  • 2 cups Almond milk, unsweetened
Pasta & grains
  • 250 g Penne pasta
Baking & spices
  • 1 1/2 tbsp Cornflour
  • 1 tbsp Nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 tsp Salt + pepper
Oils & vinegars
  • 1 1/4 tbsp Olive oil, extra virgin


  • Cook your pasta according to the package instructions, but leave the pasta just slightly undercooked. Set aside.

  • Add 1 tbsp olive oil into a large frying pan over medium to high heat. When hot, add garlic and cook for 2 minutes or until lightly browned. Mix in cornflour and cook for a further minute. Add 1/2 tsp of salt and 1 cup of almond milk, making sure that the mixture is smooth besides the garlic. When it has thickened, add the remaining cup of almond milk. When it has thickened slightly (it will thicken further when blended), pour this into a blender.

  • Add 1/2 cup sun dried tomatoes, nutritional yeast and 1/3 cup water to the blender and blend until smooth. Set aside.

  • Rinse out the frying pan and heat up 1/2 tsp of oil. Cut the remaining sun dried tomatoes to be roughly 2cm pieces. Add this along with the onion to the pan and sauté for 3 minutes. Add chilli flakes and dried oregano and cook for a further minute. If it sticks to the frying pan, add a splash of water.

  • Pour the sauce into the pan, making sure the heat is low to medium to prevent it from sticking. When the sauce is heated through, add in the pasta. Add pepper to taste and any extra salt or a splash of water if needed. When the pasta is heated through, serve this on top of the greens.
