This past weekend and through Monday – I followed a program called The 3-Day Refresh! It’s essentially a detox that helps you get back on track with your eating habits! While I try to focus on posting foods here that are exclusively whole food vegan options, sometimes I make some less than satisfactory choices in real life!
I decided that to kick of a new week I would share a really simple recipe that takes a little bit of temptation (whine) and melds it with some healthier choices (the whole food vegan ingredients). This recipe was really simple to make and when I first planned it out I thought it was going to come out very creamy – but it turned out more like a butter sauce, but for a healthy and delicious butter sauce you won’t be hearing any complaints from me!
I want to share that this sauce has an interesting texture. It’s not so interesting that I couldn’t enjoy the dish – but I did make some changes from the original recipe to help enhance the texture, flavor, and EVERYTHING about the dish.
Note that when you mix the wine and the non dairy milk, it will start to separate and possible even curdle a bit – DON’T WORRY as long as you mix the sauce while you cook it will work out okay!
I hope you enjoy my version of Simple Vegan White Wine Sauce.
- 8 oz of Pasta, I used Brown Rice Pasta
- 1 Cup White Wine
- 1 Cup Non-Dairy Milk
- 2 Tbsp Your Choice of Flour
- ½ of a Lemon, Juiced (About 2 Tbsp of Lemon Juice)
- 2 Cloves Garlic, Minced
- 1 tsp Salt
- ½ tsp Pepper
- Bring a pot of water to a boil and drop in the pasta cooking to your taste, al dente or softer depending on the pasta you chose. Drain when done. While the pasta cooks, continue with the rest of the recipe!
- Place all of the remaining ingredients in a sauce pan and whisk together well
- Bring to a soft boil over medium-high heat.
- Once the sauce comes to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer until the sauce thickens a bit - about 7-10 minutes. Continue to whisk often to mix well while reducing!
- Pour the sauce over the drained pasta and toss well to combine. Allow the sauce and pasta to sit for 5 minutes.
- Retoss the pasta and sauce again and serve.
What’s your favorite type of wine? Would you rather cook with it or just enjoy it ?
