Creamy Carrot Turmeric Pasta Sauce

Maria Marlowe


Perfect for spring celebrations, this gluten-free pasta dish consists of fresh veggies and nutritious plant-based ingredients that’ll make your spread shine! Instead of traditional red sauce, this dish calls for a creamy cashew carrot sauce (helloooo, beta carotene!) that’s boosted with nourishing turmeric. This golden spice is best known for helping maintain a healthy inflammatory response.†

If you’re into this recipe but looking for something that’s AIP-compliant, simply skip the cashews and black pepper.

Carrot turmeric sauce

Toppings (optional)


  1. Boil a pot of water for the pasta and cook according to directions. Drain and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, make the sauce: Heat a medium stockpot over medium heat. Add the oil, then the onion, garlic, and turmeric. Saute, stirring occasionally, for 2 minutes. Then add the carrot, cashews, and broth or water and cover. Cook for 10 minutes, until carrots are tender.
  3. Remove the carrot mixture from the heat and carefully transfer it to a blender. Add salt, pepper, and apple cider vinegar. Blend until smooth. (Conversely, use an immersion blender in the pot).
  4. Put the cooked pasta in the pot, pour in the carrot sauce, and mix well. To serve, plate and add a sprinkle of hemp seeds and sprouts. Add more salt and pepper to taste as desired.
