Tips and variations for this garlic noodles recipe
White sauce pasta: just increase the amount of coconut milk. Or use a different one, such as cashew milk or almond milk, add a bit of starch or flour and you’re ready to go.
Fettuccine Alfredo: use more nutritional yeast, thicken sauce with flour or starch and serve over fettuccine noodles.
Japanese garlic noodles: swap vegan butter for oil. Sesame oil or olive oil work best. Also add mixed vegetables and tamari sauce, skip the vegan parmesan cheese.
