Creamy Cilantro-Miso-Lime Pasta

this dish is. a. DREAM.

i had some cilantro about to go bad, a ton of miso in my fridge (as always), and some chickpea pasta. i didn’t know what exactly i should make, but i knew it would also include lime, because cilantro + lime = heart eyes emoji. i’m actually one of those people where cilantro tastes like soap (i had the gene verified in like seventh grade during a biology class experiment), but i like it when used sparingly and specifically. i think paired with fresh citrus and a fatty base, cilantro SHINES. anyway, this is so easy. just soak your cashews (30 minutes in a lil boiling H20 is all ya need if you’re lazy like me), steam your cauliflower, and BLEND!

Ingredients (serves 3)

  • 1 C raw cashews, soaked (in water for 8+ hours or hot water for 30+ minutes)

  • 1.5 C cauliflower florets

  • 1/2 C cilantro, packed

  • 1 T sweet white miso

  • 1 T lime juice

  • 1/2 t raw garlic, chopped

  • 1 t coriander powder

  • pinch of black pepper

  • pasta of choice (i love banza)


  1. soak your cashews and set aside. prep your pasta according to package instructions.

  2. steam your cauliflower until pull-apart tender.

  3. blend all ingredients, adding a splash of water if necessary.

  4. add your cooked pasta to the sauce and mix well! serve alongside veggies of your choice: i especially recommend onions and kale for this one!
