Creamy lemon and mushroom pasta

When I first tasted a lemon pasta a few years ago, I was instantly a fan! This exquisite lemony taste and all that creaminess combined with one of my favorite foods of all time - pasta. Over time, I have made different versions of this pasta. Sometimes I add white beans, sometimes mushrooms or just make a simple creamy sauce with grated lemon zest. But white mushrooms really fit here. I really don't know a person who doesn't like a creamy lemony pasta. This dish will definitely win some hearts (my dad is a huge fan!)

serves 2-4 people

Preparation time: 20 minutes.

  • 3 Tbsp oil
  • 2 onions
  • 2 cups / 150 g white mushrooms 
  • 1 tsp salt
  • a pinch of ground black pepper
  • ½ tsp dried thyme
  • freshly grated lemon zest of one lemon
  • juice of ½ lemon
  • 1 cup / 250 ml vegan cooking cream (I used Alpro Soya) or make your own!
  • + freshly boiled pasta for serving (I used penne)

When you start making the sauce, I recommend to boil the pasta at the same time. For the sauce: heat up some oil on a pan. Add finely chopped onions. Cook for a couple of minutes until slightly golden brown. Add chopped mushrooms. Cook for a minute. Add salt, pepper, thyme and grated lemon zest. Cook for a minute. Add lemon juice and cream. Let it simmer on a medium heat for a couple of minutes. Serve right away with freshly boiled pasta!

    1. Dear Anonymous, I accidentally removed your lovely comment! I am glad you stopped by and I really love this pasta too :)

  2. I love how cheap and delicious this sounds! I'm trying to get into veganism, but I'm in college so simplicity and cost are a big deal for me. Thanks for posting!

    1. I am so happy you found the recipe useful! Cost and simplicity are important for me too. Hope you will love the pasta! :)

  3. I made the mistake of using non-dairy creamer in this recipe and it was not good. Do you have any suggestions for alternatives to non-dairy cream? I can't find it in stores around me.

  4. My favorite is soy cream but actually coconut milk also works wonderfully in here! You can also try to use plant milk and thicken it with a tiny bit of flour.
