Creamy Mushroom Sauce:
2 cups of cashew cream
2 punnets (or 200g) of brown mushroom
2 cups of spinach
3 cloves of garlic – finely chopped
1 tsp of oil
19g of parsley (around 6 stalks)
1 tsp of paprika
1 cup of water
Heat a large pan.
Add mushrooms and sweat them off.
Add garlic and parsley. Saute for 2 mins.
Add paprika and fry for another 1 min.
Add the cashew cream and mix it all together.
Add 1/4 cup of water every 5 to 8 mins or when you notice the sauce getting too thick.
Add salt to taste and cook for approximately 15 to 20 mins in low heat.
Turn off the stove and add the spinach, giving the sauce a gentle stir to coat all the spinach in the sauce.
Serve with pasta of your choice, cooked as per the instructions on the packet.
Optional: you can garnish the pasta with remaining parsley before serving.
