**Pasta with Archiduc Sauce Recipe**


- 12 oz (340 g) pasta (linguine, fettuccine, or your choice) - 2 tablespoons olive oil - 1 small onion, finely chopped - 2 cloves garlic, minced - 8 oz (225 g) mushrooms, sliced - 1 cup (240 ml) vegetable broth - 1 cup (240 ml) plant-based cream (such as coconut cream or cashew cream) - 2 tablespoons tomato paste - 1 teaspoon paprika - 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme - Salt and pepper to taste - Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish) **For the Vegan Archiduc Sauce:** - 2 tablespoons vegan butter or margarine - 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour - 1 cup (240 ml) unsweetened plant-based milk (soy, almond, oat, etc.) - 1/4 cup (60 ml) dry white wine (or additional vegetable broth) - Nutmeg, a pinch (optional) - Salt and pepper to taste


1. **Cook the Pasta:** - Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. - Add the pasta and cook according to the package instructions until al dente. - Drain the pasta and set aside. 2. **Prepare the Sauce:** - In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. - Add the chopped onion and sauté for 2-3 minutes until softened. - Add the minced garlic and sliced mushrooms. Sauté for another 5-7 minutes until the mushrooms release their moisture and turn golden brown. 3. **Create the Base:** - Stir in the tomato paste, paprika, dried thyme, salt, and pepper. Cook for 2 minutes to allow the flavors to meld. 4. **Add Liquids:** - Pour in the vegetable broth and plant-based cream. Stir well to combine. - Allow the mixture to simmer gently for about 5 minutes. 5. **Prepare the Vegan Archiduc Sauce:** - In a separate saucepan, melt the vegan butter over medium heat. - Add the flour and whisk continuously to create a roux. Cook for 1-2 minutes until the roux is lightly golden in color. - Gradually pour in the plant-based milk while whisking to prevent lumps from forming. - Add the white wine and continue to whisk until the sauce thickens. If using nutmeg, grate a pinch into the sauce. Season with salt and pepper. 6. **Combine the Sauces:** - Gently combine the prepared vegan Archiduc sauce with the mushroom and cream mixture in the skillet. Stir well to ensure the flavors are evenly distributed. 7. **Final Assembly:** - Add the cooked pasta to the skillet and toss to coat the pasta with the sauce. - Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes, allowing the pasta to absorb some of the sauce. 8. **Serve:** - Divide the pasta with Archiduc sauce among serving plates. - Garnish with chopped fresh parsley for a burst of color and flavor. **Vegan Alternatives:** - Instead of regular pasta, use vegan-friendly pasta made from ingredients like whole wheat, legumes, or gluten-free grains. - Use olive oil or vegan butter in place of regular butter. - Choose a plant-based cream alternative like coconut cream, cashew cream, or oat cream. - Opt for unsweetened plant-based milk such as soy, almond, oat, or cashew milk for the sauce. - Ensure that the wine you use is certified vegan, as some wines are processed using animal-derived fining agents.
