  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 454 g pasta of choice I used whole wheat
  • 227 g cremini mushrooms sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast plus more for servings
  • 1/2 cup vegetable stock plus more as needed
  • 1 tbsp vegan butter
  • 1 cup pasta water
  • 1/2 tsp salt or to taste
  • 1/2 tsp pepper or to taste
  • 1 lemon juiced. Plus more for servings


  1. Cook pasta as per package instructions to al dente, saving 1 cup of pasta water before draining.

  2. Meanwhile, sauté mushrooms in olive oil in a large pan over medium heat, until any water that comes from mushrooms evapourates (about 5-6 minutes).

  3. Add vegetable stock, minced garlic, salt, pepper and vegan butter and sauté to combine for 2-3 minutes.

  4. Add pasta water, starting with 1/2 cup, and nutritional yeast. Sauté to combine for 2-3 minutes, until you see the mixture start to thicken slightly. If mixture isn't thickening, add more pasta water 1/4 cup at a time. If mixture is slightly too thick, add more vegetable stock.

  5. Add cooked pasta and lemon juice and sauté to combine, about 1-2 minutes. Serve with a squeeze of lemon juice and sprinkle of nutritional yeast and enjoy!
