Rate this recipe


  • 1 1/2 cup coconut milk (drinking kind) - you can sub for another non-dairy milk if you desire
  • 100g cooked butternut squash or pumpkin
  • 1 medium carrot
  • 3 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 2 cloves garlic

  • Pinch of nutmeg
  • Sea salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 heaped tbsp plain hummus
  • Vegan butter for cooking
  • 1 tsp cornflour mixed with warm water
Prep Time


  1. Start by finely dicing the onion and carrot and adding these to a pan along with a tsp of vegan butter. Bring the pan to medium heat and sauté these until softened

  2. Crush in the garlic cloves and cook until fragrant

  3. Allow to cool, then in your Ninja blender, combine the cooked veggies, pumpkin, milk, nutritional yeast and seasonings, then blend until smooth.

  4. Transfer the sauce back into the saucepan and reduce the heat to low

  5. Cook the pasta according to the instructions on the pack

  6. Meanwhile, stir the hummus and cornflour mixture into the sauce and bring to the boil

  7. Reduce to a simmer and continue to stir so that the sauce thickens. Adjust any seasonings to taste

  8. Once your pasta is cooked and al dente, add this into the sauce and toss together so that all of your linguine is evenly coated

  9. Serve garnished with some cracked pepper and fresh herbs

Cooking and being in the kitchen was always something that I loved, after always helping and watching my mum cook as a child. Fitness is a huge part of my life, so making sure that I fuel my body with healthy, nourishing foods goes hand in hand with that. I started to create healthy alternatives to my favourite dishes and loved sharing my photos and recipes on social media just as a hobby. After a while I decided to set up my blog, which was my place to really get creative and write and share whatever I wanted.
