Creamy Green Cannelloni


Creamy Green Cannelloni

"These creamy spinach and basil cannelloni are what dreams are made of. The flavours literally explode in your mouth. You know I love to make comfort food super nourishing and I think we really took it to the next level this time! I made a spicy tomato sauce and the combo of heat with the creamy and fragrant filling was amazing. The creamy filling is packed with fibre and nutrients. It's great to sneak in greens, beans and nuts for the picky eaters in our life and is so delicious! It's made with white beans, cashew, nutritional yeast, beautiful greens and Califia's new Original Oat Milk, which is so smooth and super creamy. I love that it's fortified with calcium and vitamin D, which are two nutrients of focus in a plant-based diet!" says Sarah Cobacho.

Serves 3

Ingredients :

- 1.5 cup butter beans
- 1 cup Califia Farms Original Oat milk
- 0.5 cup nutritional yeast 
- 1 tsp Garlic powder 
- 1 cup baby spinach 
- ½ cup basil 
- ½ cup soaked cashews 
- ½ tsp salt 
- 700g spicy tomato sauce (homemade or store-bought) 
- 12 cannelloni pasta tubes 
- Optional: dairy-free parmesan 


Method:

  1. Soak the cashews overnight or for 30 minutes in boiling water.
  2. To a blender add the butter beans, nutritional yeast, oat milk, cashew, garlic powder, salt, spinach and basil. Blend on high speed until perfectly smooth. Transfer filling to a piping bag.
  3. Spread a bit of tomato sauce to the bottom of an oven-safe dish. 
  4. Fill up the cannelloni tubes, using the piping bag. Spread on top of the tomato sauce.
  5. Cover the cannelloni with tomato sauce (generously). 
  6. Put in the oven, and cook according to the pasta packet instructions (mine took about 30 minutes to cook) 
  7. Take out of the oven, and sprinkle with dairy-free parmesan. I love to serve it with a simple rocket side salad dressed in olive oil. Enjoy 🤍
