There is no need for soy cream, cashews, or other nuts to make your pasta sauce creamy. Of course, I love to use them, but they are not as affordable as tofu.
Nowadays you can find tofu in every grocery store, which is wonderful.
Tofu made this pasta a little thicker, creamier, and smoother. The color also becomes lighter.
Also, since we added tofu, this pasta is packed with some extra protein. This is an amazing way to eat tofu.
Let's make this creamy vegan tomato pasta with tofu
To make this easy vegan tomato tofu pasta, start by cooking corn pasta of your choice. I suggest spaghetti or penne for this recipe.
Next, make a tomato tofu sauce base. Into the blender add canned chopped tomatoes and firm tofu. Blend until smooth and creamy.
In a large skillet heat the olive oil and add minced garlic. Cook until fragrant and golden. This will take only a few seconds. Then, add seasonings and cook for few more seconds.
Immediately pour in the tomato tofu mixture and combine. The sauce will be a little thicker, but that's ok because we are going to add water now.
Stir until everything is combined and add cooked pasta at the very last.
Lastly, sprinkle some fresh basil leaves on top and decorate with black olives and vegan cheese. In this recipe I used my favorite Vegan white greek cheese. Enjoy!
This extra creamy vegan tomato tofu pasta is so delicious and very easy to make. Because of the secret ingredient - tofu, the sauce is so creamy and also packed with extra protein. This is a perfect meal for lazy days.
