 Any time you need a delicious fancy dinner to serve or you just want to fill up on a great comfort food meal, try this lemon sauce with pasta.  All you’ll need is a few basics like Lemons, butter, Nut Milk and pasta…and you’re 30 minutes away from sitting down to a great healthy meal that won’t leave you sleepy from carbs.

 The sauce is a healthy cousin to the traditional Italian Picatta sauce served with Chicken or Veal and pasta.  A meal I used to enjoy frequently before moving to a plant based Vegan diet.  This version is so much healthier, kinder and actually so much easier as well.

 It’s all good!

 Soba noodles are usually in with Asian foods in the grocery.  They have Buckwheat flour mixed with wheat usually and take only a few minutes to cook.

 This sauce is slightly creamy but definitely not thick like a cheese sauce.  It lets the pasta be the texture of each bite, not the cream.  Very light and flavorful.

Soba Noodles with Lemon Cream Sauce

51

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Yield: 2 - 3 2 Cup Servings

Deliciously light and flavorful. No nap after dinner with this healthy version of the classic Picatta sauce. This sauce has the tangy lemon, a touch of garlic and the red pepper bite at the end. You'll want seconds...and why not? It's all healthy ingredients that your body needs and your mouth will love ♥

What you will need for this recipe:

  • 3 Fresh Lemons, squeezed (about 1/2 Cup of juice)
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 4 tablespoons vegan butter
  • 1 cup Cashew cream or Almond Milk
  • 1 cup Vegetable broth
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • Pieces of 1 Lemon rind sliced thin (or just the zest)
  • 16 ounces cooked Soba Noodles
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • A sprinkle of Red Pepper Flakes

Instructions

In a large saucepan or skillet, melt the butter and cook the garlic and lemon zest over medium heat until it begins to thicken slightly

Add cashew cream and vegetable broth.

Simmer over medium heat until the mixture is reduced by half.

Stir in lemon juice. Remove from heat and season with salt and pepper.

Serve over cooked Soba noodles. Top with a few Red Pepper Flakes.

Notes

This simple tasty pasta dish goes wonderfully with some healthy homemade bread. I served mine with some Spelt Bread that I added 1 cup of cooked Red Quinoa too. The bread is relatively Gluten Free and so flavorful. Toasted and buttered up, it compliments the tangy sauce and creamy pasta. Since changing to a plant based diet, my old favorite Chicken Picatta has been sorely missed....but no more. This makes my old 'fattening' favorite just a thing of the past. For a even more authentic Picatta sauce, add in about 1/3 cup of Capers. The sauce will keep in the fridge for up to 1 week.
