This pretty pink vegan pasta is healthy, vegan friendly, gluten and nut free, and did I mention delicious? She’s definitely a plate turner!
Soak sunflower seeds overnight, or for at least 20 minutes with boiling water
Preheat your oven to 450 degrees. While it's heating up peel and cut your beets in quarters. Cook them for about 35-40 minutes.
In a mixer, combine drained sunflower seeds, water, roasted beet, garlic, red wine vinegar and salt. Start with half of the beet and added more as desired to achieve the perfect pink color. Blend until smooth.
Boiled the pasta and when it was almost done set aside 1/2 of a cup of the starchy water.
In a skillet mix the starchy water and beet pasta sauce until it is simmering.
Mix in your cooked pasta.
Plate and add some vegan or regular parmesan cheese.
