Diaz Sauce

This is a quick and easy sauce that I like to make when I am short on time. It can be used for any pasta and the possibilities are endless with what you can add to it for extra flavor. I learned this from a friend while in Spain (which is where it also got its name). The vegan yogurt gives it a sweet taste and the ketchup and mustard gives it a light spice flavor. If you do not like vegan yogurt then vegan mayo goes really well with this too and makes it tangy.

After cooking and draining your favorite pasta as directed on the box, just stir in these ingredients and either enjoy it right away or let it chill for a few hours. It tastes great warm or cold (I prefer mine to be cold). I like to add sliced black olives to mine but you can also add fried or baked tofu, corn, peas or bell pepper. I only season mine with pepper, however other herbs that taste great with it are basil and parsley.

This recipe is for two servings:

1 1/3 Cups of dry pasta

2/3 Cup of vegan yogurt (I use the So Delicious brand) OR vegan mayo

1/2 TBSP Yellow mustard

1 TBSP Ketchup

8 sliced black olives (optional)

**use tofu, or a mix of your favorite veggies to stir in if you do not like olives.

**adjust the ingredients to your taste preference, the friend I learned this from actually uses more mustard than me but I prefer it with less 🙂
