  • SERVINGServings


  • 8 oz. whole-wheat fettuccine
  • 1 1/2 cups plain soymilk
  • 1/4 cup white wine
  • 1 Tbs. nutritional yeast
  • 1 tsp. yellow miso
  • 1/8 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. turmeric
  • 1 Tbs. corn oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced (2 tsp.)
  • 2 Tbs. all-purpose flour
  • 8 oz. portobello mushroom caps, sliced 1/2-inch thick

  1. Cook fettuccine according to package directions. Whisk together soymilk, wine, yeast, miso, nutmeg, cayenne, and turmeric in measuring cup. Set aside.
  2. Heat corn oil in 4-qt. saucepan over medium heat, and add garlic. When garlic starts to sizzle, whisk in flour. Cook 2 minutes, whisking constantly.

  3. Coat skillet with olive oil cooking spray, and heat over high heat. Sear mushroom slices 2 to 3 minutes on each side, or until they shrink and brown.
  4. Drain fettuccine, and toss with warm sauce and basil. Top with mushrooms.
