Creamy Butter Bean Pasta

Published on November 23, 2020

  • 2 cups small shell pasta

  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin oil, divided

  • 1 small leek, white part only, sliced

  • 4 cups broccoli florets

  • ½ cup vegetable broth, divided

  • 1 (14 ounce) can butter beans, rinsed and drained

  • ¼ cup nutritional yeast

  • 3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice

  • 1 clove garlic

  • ¼ teaspoon onion powder

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • freshly ground black pepper to taste

  • ¼ cup chopped roasted walnuts

  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add shells and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender yet firm to the bite, 7 to 9 minutes. Drain, reserving a cup of cooking water.

  2. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Add leek and cook until soft, 3 to 5 minutes; do not brown. Add broccoli and 1/4 cup vegetable broth. Reduce heat to low, cover, and cook until tender, 5 to 8 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, combine butter beans, remaining vegetable broth, remaining olive oil, nutritional yeast, lemon juice, garlic, onion powder, salt, and pepper in a blender. Process until sauce is smooth.

  4. Add cooked pasta and sauce to the skillet with the broccoli; toss to coat. Add reserved cooking water, a few tablespoons at a time, if the sauce appears too dry. Evenly divide among 4 bowls and top with nuts.
