I also have another savory curry recipe that you are GOING to loveeee if you love warm comforting meals on a cold night! It’s my Chickpea & Mushroom Red Curry that can be eaten with any of your favourite carbs! Made with my favourite red curry paste and creamy rich coconut milk! It’s a must try!
Anyways back to the recipe… One thing I regret not adding to this delicious bowl is sundried tomatoes. I have a whooooole bag of them just chilling in my pantry and I always forget about them. Poor things!
Good news though, is that everything in this recipe you likely already have hanging around your kitchen, so let’s get into it shall we? 😀

Cheezy Pasta, Tofu & Mushrooms w/Avocado & Basil Cream
- 1/2 block firm tofu
- 1 dry cup rigatoni pasta (can use any type of pasta you like)
- 5 tbsp nutritional yeast
- juice of 1 lemon
- 1/2 red bell pepper
- 1 handful fresh basil leaves
- 1 avocado
- 2 cloves garlic minced
- 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk/plant milk of choice
- 1/4 cup frozen corn
- 1/4 cup frozen peas
- 1/2 cup mushrooms sliced
Cut tofu into small cubes and place into a bowl
Add in 2 tbsp nutritional yeast, and the juice of 1 lemon and coat tofu - being careful not to break it into smaller chunks
Place onto a non stick baking mat or a sheet of parchment paper on top of a cookie sheet and place in the oven at 400F for about 25 minutes or until desired tenderness
While the tofu is cooking, add mushrooms, corn, peas and a splash of water to keep from any sticking to a pan and sauté until the moisture has been released (about 5 minutes on low medium heat)
Add pasta to a pot and cook as instructed on packaging
To finish up, add avocado, basil, garlic, 2 tbsp nutritional yeast, red pepper & plant milk to a blender and blend until creamy
Remove tofu from the oven when it has reached desired consistency, and mix everything together in a large bowl. Combine with creamy dressing & serve! Enjoy!
