This Creamy Vegan Garlic Pasta with Crispy Brussels Sprouts is simple to make and the perfect Fall dinner to keep you warm and satisfied!
What better way to start off the week than a warm bowl of pasta?
Maybe if that pasta is tossed in a creamy garlic sauce and then topped with crispy shallots and brussels sprouts.
Sounds pretty good to me.
To me, nothing screams "FALL" like a creamy pasta.
And this one is not going to disappoint.
With just a few simple ingredients you can easily get a delicious & creamy sauce.
AND you don't even have to soak a single cashew!
Vegan butter, non-dairy milk, veggie broth and a ton of garlic cook together until fragrant. Add a little flour to thicken it up and lots of fresh cracked black pepper and you are done.
NOTE: If you want a completely smooth sauce you could throw it in the blender, but I personally don't mind a chunk of garlic in each bite.
At this point, you could add the pasta to the sauce and call it a day. It is already delicious as is.
HOWEVER, the addition of crispy shallots and brussels sprouts puts this dish over the top!
September is the beginning of brussels sprout season, so they should be easy to find locally. And if you don't think you like brussels sprouts, I'd say give them another try. When you pair them with the right flavors they are extremely tasty!
Moral of the story is this pasta is simple and comforting - sure to be a Fall favorite!
