Black Bean Pasta with Exotic Mushrooms and Cream Sauce. Vegan, GF Recipe.

A simple, quick and delicious basic pasta made with mixed mushrooms, green peas, and cashew creamy sauce. Homemade cashew cream is a healthy alternative to heavy cream. Black bean pasta is a new generation of pasta. It`s a wonderful source of dietary fibre, plant-based protein and it’s gluten-free. In addition, this black bean spaghetti is very nutritious, only 50 grams of dried pasta is enough for preparing one serving.

Mushroom pasta gets an Asian-inspired twist in this recipe. I added mixed Asian fragrant mushrooms – shiitake, enoki, oyster mushrooms and finely sliced wood ear mushrooms, all of them have amazing texture and flavor.

Actually, all types of mushroom could be used here – porcini, chanterelle, Portobello mushrooms, button mushrooms or field mushrooms. Healthy, versatile mushrooms are an excellent addition to your plate. Mushrooms impart a fifth taste sense called umami, which is savory. Hearty meat-like mushrooms are an economical and nutritious way to enhance any meal.
