Creamy Mushroom Sauce:

  • First, make your béchamel sauce. With your pan on a medium heat add 40ml of olive oil and sieve in 40g of flour. Whisk together to create your roux.
  • Slowly pour in 400ml oat, continuing to whisk.
  • Bring to the oil and add a generous pinch of salt and a small pinch of pepper- all the while stirring
  • As soon as it thickens, take it off the heat
  • Take another frying pan, and add 2 tbsp olive oil on a medium heat.
  • Add in the garlic and mushroom. Fry until the mushrooms start to brown and reduce in size
  • Pour in your white wine slowly so that it simmers
  • On top of the mushrooms, add a generous pinch of salt and a small pinch of black pepper
  • Mix together the mushrooms and your béchamel sauce in one pan
  • Squeeze in the lemon juice and to finish it off, add in the nutritional yeast
  • Sprinkle in some fresh thyme leaves and it’s ready to go!

Arrabiatta Sauce:

  • Pierce 2 of the chillies with a knife multiple times
  • Finely slice the other two, removing the seeds
  • Add 2 tbsp of oil to a pan. Finely chop 3 cloves of garlic and add them to the pan along with all the chillies
  • Next, add in the olives, tinned tomatoes, maple syrup, salt, pepper and oregano
  • Bring to the boil and then take off the heat
