Try this simple and light spicy cilantro lime sauce with coconut with your pasta. It can be made under 20 minutes and requires very little effort.
Some days, you just want to eat something light, yet, fulfilling!
Today is one of those days. Lately it seems that I have been making heavy dishes which are carb heavy and cannot be good for the human body.
This spicy coconut lime sauce with pasta dish is perfect for lunch or a quick dinner idea. It’s a lighter version of vegan Alfredo sauce!
Add a quick side salad like this beet salad recipe and you have a well rounded meal on your hands.
I like spaghetti for this recipe because it is hearty enough to be the full meal. However, you can use this sauce with any kind of Pasta. It will go great with fusilli pasta or even linguini.
How to use this sauce
- Warm Pasta Salad
- Vegan Elote
- Mediterranean Lentil Salad
- Cauliflower Rice and Vegan Sausage
- Top it on chili tacos
This recipe has a very distinct Thai flavor to it. Adding pasta to it gives it a little Italian flare. Don’t you just love fusion cuisine?
