This works well as a creamy sauce for pasta. Especially useful for those unable to have dairy or tomato sauces. This is a beginning point, and maybe quite useful for Elimination Diets. For those with less restrictions, I'd suggest adding herbs and onions to taste. (I plan on developing such a recipe once I'm allowed onions again.) I've been eating this with rice & millet pasta twists.

Excellent recipe. I will never prepare a pasta sauce with cream any more. This is it. I love this recipe and it tastes great. I am trying to stay away from dairy (not that I do not like it but because it is simply unhealthy) and this simply makes me happy. I gave it a five star despite a few changes I made. I used soft tofu instead of firm. I also added nutmeg which is my secret (I guess not anymore) to any creamy dish. I also added onions and shallots that I sauteed in a little olive oil before adding the mixture. This sauce was wonderful over my Barilla whole wheat thin spaghetti. Thank you for a great and healthy recipe.
- 12 ounces firm silken tofu, drained (but not pressed)
- 2 garlic cloves
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons dried parsley
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons dried basil (or herb of choice)
- 1⁄4 teaspoon paprika
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 cup soymilk (approximately)
Directions See How It's Made
- Blend the tofu, garlic, parsley, herbs, paprika, and salt. (Add any herbs you want).
- Then thin with soy milk to achieve consistency. I like mine rather thick so it coats the pasta.
- When mixed, heat thoroughly in a pan before putting on pasta. (It tends too cool too quick if just poured over pasta and quickly heated.) DON'T LET IT BOIL THOUGH! It will separate and turn pasty if you do, which just isn't pleasant.
