Miso Carrot Pasta with Arugula

When it comes to pasta, I’ll try almost anything as a sauce. It’s led to some interesting fails but also some fantastic, funky ideas. This carrot pasta uses two of my favorite components, which makes this an easy 15-minute meal during the week.

Carrot Puree

I always feel like I overdo on carrots but for good reason. The flavor is the perfect balance of earthy and savory, and I’ve yet to find a use for carrots I don’t like. This pasta might be a bit out there for some, but if you’re in love with carrots, I highly recommend you try this.

The Cream

There’s nothing quite a solid as a good cashew cream, which works well with the creaminess of the carrots. However, cashews can get a bit expensive. This carrot pasta works well with sunflower cream as well.

Greens with Carrot Pasta

I love the peppery-ness of the arugula, but different greens would work. Try kale (massaged with a bit of lemon and salt) or sautee chard/collards with garlic and olive oil. There’s no right or wrong way to go, but don’t skip the greens; they balance out the carrot/miso blend.
