Vegan Chorizo Pasta

Okay so please can I just tell you how good this was. It was really really good. Like REALLY very good. I was talking to a uni friend about how weird it was that we’d eat chorizo and chicken risotto with mascarpone two-three times a week. It made me pine for a big bowl of creamy, fresh, zesty pasta with vegan chorizo.


I don’t want to beg but please can you make this? Thank you.


INGREDIENTS (2 servings)


Roasted toms:

24 plum or cherry tomatoes

2 tbsp olive oil

2 tsp oregano

2 tsp red wine vinegar

Large pinch of brown sugar, salt and pepper


Pasta sauce:

4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced

2 tbsp chopped basil

80 grams Violife greek block, crumbles

4 Wicked vegan chorizo sausages

Healthy glug of olive oil

Zest of 2 lemons

2 tsp chilli flakes

2 tbsp lemon juice

1 big ladle of pasta water


🥦 Roast the tomatoes and all ingredients up until the next bit that says ‘pasta sauce’ on a tray lined with foil for 15-20 mins at 200 degrees. You want them to blister and char slightly.


🥦 Fry your sausages as it says to on the pack with a bit of olive oil then cut up into chunks once they’re cooked


🥦 Get a pot of water onto boil with plenty (I mean PLENTY) of salt


🥦 Once it’s at a rolling boil, add your pasta and cook accordingly


🥦 Two-three mins before the pasta is done, turn down the frying pan with the sausages to a low heat


🥦 Add a splash more olive oil to the pan along with the garlic and fry for 30 seconds (you don’t want them to brown!)


🥦 Once the garlic is fragrant add the lemon zest, tomatoes (and juice from the tray), chopped basil, Greek style cheese, chilli flakes and a ladle of pasta water to the pan. Stir until it comes together into a creamy sauce (try not to smoosh the tomatoes too much).


🥦 Finally add the pasta and a bit more pasta water so you end up with glossy pasta that's coated in an unctuous. Finish with lots of fresh black pepper and the lemon juice.


ENJOY!!
