¼ cup plant milk of choice

3 tbsp nutritional yeast 

2 tsp garlic powder

2 tsp onion powder

1 tsp dried oregano

Salt and pepper, to taste

1 cup cherry tomatoes

1 tsp olive oil

Basil, for garnish


Prep Time: 5 min

Cook Time: 10 min

Servings: 4–6


1 Heat water and boil pasta according to instructions on the package. Reserving 1 cup of pasta water, drain and set pasta aside. 

2 In a blender or food processor, add all ingredients for the sauce and blend until smooth. 

3 In a large saucepan or Dutch oven, heat olive oil over medium-low heat. Add asparagus and cook 3–4 minutes, until soft. Add cherry tomatoes and cook another 2 minutes, until the tomatoes are slightly soft. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the drained pasta. 

4 Add the avocado sauce and toss gently to combine, adding a bit of the reserved pasta water as needed if the pasta is too thick or clumping together. Taste and add chopped basil and additional salt and/or pepper as desired. Serve immediately.
