Creamy Garlic and Mushroom Sauce for Pasta
Dash olive oil or spoonful of margarine
1 1/2 cup mushrooms, or 1-2 cans
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup fresh green onion, or yellow onion, diced
1/4 cup flour
3 cups plain unsweetened soymilk
Salt and pepper to taste
Dash nutritional yeast
Dash onion powder
Heat oil in a pan and mushrooms and onions. Cook for about 7 minutes, or until softened, add garlic and cook for 1 minute longer.
Place 1/4 cup flour and 1/2 cup of soymilk in a small jar. Cover and shake well or blend. Slowly pour mixture into the pan with the garlic, onion and mushrooms while still on medium heat. Whisk to prevent lumps, it will start to thicken immediatly. Whisk in remaining soymilk, salt, pepper, nutritional yeast and onion powder. Simmer over medium-low heat until the sauce has thickened, about 8 minutes.
Pour over your favorite pasta like penne or capellini and mix gently. Serve with soy sausages for an extra protein kick :)
