Step 1

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil for cooking pasta. Meanwhile, in another saucepan (larger than 4 cup/1 L capacity), melt the plant-based spread over medium heat. Stir in the gluten-free flour to make a smooth paste (or roux). Remove from heat; set aside.

Step 2

In another saucepan, heat the oat and coconut beverage just until hot (do not boil). (Tip: Can also heat in microwave). Gradually whisk the hot beverage into the roux until smooth. Continue stirring while bringing the sauce to a low simmer. Press the 3 cloves into the shallot; add to the sauce along with the bay leaves, garlic, salt, pepper and nutmeg. Keep to a low simmer, uncovered, for about 30 min. Stir occasionally until thickened and sauce evenly coats the back of a spoon.

Step 3

Remove sauce from heat. Remove and discard the shallot and cloves, bay leaves and garlic. Stir in the plant-based Parmesan flavoured shreds until melted. Adjust salt and pepper, if needed. Cover to keep warm.

Step 4

Meanwhile, cook the gluten-free pasta according to package directions. Scoop out about 1 cup (250 mL) of the pasta water before draining. Transfer the drained pasta back into the pot. Add the sauce; mix gently to coat. Add just enough pasta water (a few splashes at a time) to loosen the sauce so it coats the pasta smoothly and evenly (you might not use all the pasta water). Serve immediately, garnished with chives and additional pepper, if desired.
