Vegan Sage Pasta Sauce

creamy, cheesy, sagey dairy-free, gluten-free + vegan pasta sauce. best served warm.


  • 2 tbsp of olive oil
  • a dash of sea salt
  • 1 garlic, minced
  • 1 handful of sage leaves, thinly sliced (chiffonade or rough chop)
  • 1/41/2 cup of rice milk
  • a squeeze of lemon juice
  • 1 small spoon of tahini 
  • 1 tsp of nutritional yeast


  1. heat up the olive oil in the pan with the minced garlic and the chopped sage to medium low heat. cook for a minute or two. 
  2. add the rest of the ingredients to the pan and stir until emulsified.
  3. option to blend, then pour onto pasta or whatever dish you like!


sauté the sage and garlic until fragrant. the lemon squeeze will help emulsify the tahini into the sauce. you can use more than 1/4 cup of rice milk but don’t use any less. it won’t change the flavor much, just the consistency. it thickens as you keep it over the heat. once the sage and garlic is cooked alone, bring down the heat to low.
