Miso Sage Pasta Recipe

1 comment


I was inspired by the New York Times Miso Pasta recipe but wanted to add my ChiVeg spin to it. This past year I have really gotten into cooking with miso beyond miso soup and have fallen in love with this incredible ingredient. It’s so versatile, tasty, and I love combining Italian and Japanese flavors! This recipe is also great for a weeknight when you don’t have that much time to cook and are looking for a quick, tasty recipe. See below for my Miso Sage Pasta Recipe! The sauce has a creamy texture but is still vegan!

If you try making any of these recipes, I would love if you could tag it on Instagram or FB @chivegfood!

A quick, vegan, and flavorful combination of culinary backgrounds in this miso sage pasta recipe!


  • Pasta
  • linguine (Spinach linguine is what I use)

  • soy butter

  • olive oil

  • baby bella mushrooms (sliced, shiitake mushrooms are great too)

  • 3cloves garlic (minced)

  • spinach (loosely chopped)

  • rice wine vinegar

  • miso (mixed with a little bit of water ahead of time to prevent clumping)

  • pasta water

  • 3 sage leaves (loosely chopped)

  • 1stalk green onion (diced)

  • Spices
  • oregano

  • red pepper flakes

  • salt/pepper to taste

  • Optional Caramelized onions
  • 1/2 golden onion (thinly sliced)

  • soy butter

  • salt to taste


  • Prepare pasta according to directions but don’t forget to keep the pasta water after it’s done cooking.
  • Chop all your veggies. In a small bowl or cup mix your miso with water to prevent clumping.
  • If you are making the optional caramelized onions, in a smaller pan, heat up the soy butter on medium heat, add your onions, sprinkle with salt, and sauté on low-medium heat for 10 minutes. Put aside.
  • Heat up 2 tbsp of soy butter in a deep frying pan on medium heat. Add your mushrooms, sauté for 2 minutes, then add your garlic, spinach, red pepper flakes, oregano, and salt/pepper. Sauté for 2 more minutes.
  • If your soy butter has dissipated, then add some olive oil to keep it moist. Turn heat on low. Add rice wine vinegar, then the miso water mixture, stir till solidified.
  • Add the sage, pasta water and 1 tbsp of soy butter. Then mix with the miso butter sauce and veggies. Add in your optional caramelized onions. Garnish with green onion.


  • You can easily double this recipe for more people.
  • Want more veggies? Add some mini asparagus, olives and broccoli.
  • Want to thicken your sauce? Add some nutritional yeast, vegan parmesan or regular parmesan if you eat dairy.
  • I think fettuccini/linguine noodles work best for this but this can easily be made with spaghetti or other types of pasta.
  • The caramelized onions add a nice smoky flavor but you can also try adding vegan bacon – be careful though because the miso already is salty and you don’t want the vegan bacon to make it too salty.
  • Want it saucier? Add more soy butter, rice vinegar, and miso-water to your dish – whisk it in.
