Vegan Mushroom Pasta with roasted sunchokes and a creamy vegan artichoke heart sauce ( use canned or frozen artichoke hearts) that can be made in under 30 minutes! Delicious, healthy, nut-free and totally vegan.



  • 8 ounces dry pasta- tagliatelle, fettuccine, linguine, spaghetti
  • 8 ounces  sunchokes ( optional- you can leave these out, or sub with more mushrooms, or other roasted veggies)
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • 8 ounces sliced mushrooms- cremini, shittake, porto’s, chanterelles
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • salt & pepper to taste

Artichoke Sauce:

  • 1 jar artichoke hearts ( 1012 ounces … about 1 ½ cups) or use frozen
  • ½ cup water
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 10 fresh sage leaves
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon cracked pepper
  • lemon to taste ( see notes)
  • Garnishes- grated Pecorino, truffle oil ( both optional)


  1.  Preheat oven to 400.
  2. Wash (or scrub if necessary) and pat dry sunchokes. Don’t bother peeling. Quarter them and toss in a bowl with olive oil, salt and pepper. Place on a parchment linked baking sheet in the oven and roast for 20 minutes or until tender.
  3. Bring big pot of generously salted water to a boil ( for the pasta). Cook the pasta to al dente.
  4. While water is boiling, in a large skillet, saute the mushrooms over medium heat in a little olive oil. Season with salt and pepper, set aside.
  5. Make the Artichoke Sauce: drain the artichoke hearts and place them in a blender (don’t use a food processor, it will not get this sauce creamy enough!).  Add the water, olive oil, sage, garlic, salt and pepper. Blend until creamy and very very smooth. If sauce seems “stringy” from the aritchokes, you need to keep blending on high speed. Taste. If using frozen artichoke hearts or artichokes packed in water, add a little squeeze of lemon to taste. ( The marinated artichokes in oil, usually have a bit of vinegar or acid already.)
  6. Add the cooked, drained pasta ( do not rinse) to the cooked mushrooms in the saute pan. Toss with the artichoke sauce and heat up, gently stirring. Taste for salt, adding more if necessary.  Add the roasted sunchokes and toss well.
  7. To garnish, you could drizzle a little truffle oil over top and dust some finely grated Parmesan.—or keep it vegan, up to you. Chili flakes are nice too. 😉
