This creamy homemade vegan pasta alla voldka is the perfect recipe for a romantic evening or a dinner with friends! It’s very simple to prepare and I promise you’ll never want to go back to the store-bought sauce.


  • 1/2 cup of cashews soaked in boiling water 1 hour
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 big diced onion
  • 5 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 can of diced tomatoes 28 ounces
  • 1/4 cup of vodka
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt and more to taste
  • Black pepper to taste
  • Fresh basil for serving


  1. Drain and rinse the cashews
  2. Add the cashews in food processor or blender with 1/4 cup  of water. Mix gently until you have a smooth texture. (like cream)
  3. Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. When the oil is hot, add the onion. Sauté for about five minutes, until softened. Add the garlic and continue to sauté for one minute.
  4. Stir in diced tomatoes and vodka. Bring the mixture to a boil and reduce the heat to medium-low. Continue cooking over low heat for about fifteen minutes, until the sauce thickens.
  5. Add the cashew mixture to the sauce and cook for another 5 minutes, until everything is hot. Remove from heat and season with salt and pepper.
  6. Serve over pasta and garnish with fresh basil
  7. Top with vegan parmesan if desired
