Vegan Meat Sauce

Vegan Cauliflower Walnut Bolognese by Pasta-based. Detailed view of a forkful of cauliflower walnut bolognese sauce/vegan meat sauce with farfalle pasta.

This recipe for chunky, cauliflower walnut meat sauce is one of those weeknight recipes we threw together that came out amazing on the first try. Inspired by a recipe we once made for cauliflower walnut taco meat. This is the Italian version of that. It’s meaty texture is enough to fool any vegan skeptic. It reminds me of the same meat sauce my mom made growing up, except there’s no meat involved.


Vegan Sage Brown Butter Sauce

Vegan Butternut Squash Ravioli by Pasta-based. Fresh sage leaves lined up on a white table.

Sage Brown Butter Sauce. I’m obsessed. This sauce is GODLY. This sauce is so freaking good, I literally said to Matt while eating it, “I can drink this sauce.” Like, pour into your fanciest crystal wine glass and slurp it down.

Unfortunately, we aren’t allowed to have any crystal glassware because I would shatter them just by breathing. Once, I broke two wine glasses in under a second. Yep. I spun around and accidentally hit one wine glass which flew off the counter only to hit another wine glass, shattering them both. I don’t know what’s wrong with me.

This week has been craaazy. Both Matt and I have been super busy at work and totally pooped by the time we get home. Thanksgiving is next week and we’re so so so so so so sooooo ready for the 4-day weekend ahead of us. This year, we’re ordering a feast from our favorite vegan food truck WongWay Veg. I’m so excited!!! I know it’s going to be delicious. We love everything they make. What are your Thanksgiving plans? Cooking, ordering, visiting family, skipping it entirely? Spill it sista, give me the deets.
