Ready in 30 minutes Garlic Chili Peanut Linguine! This vegan dish is perfect as an entree, mildly spicy and delicious!


  • For the Sauce:
  • 1/4 cup (63g) Peanut Butter
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) Dark Soy Sauce
  • 2 Tbsp (30ml) Date Honey or Maple Syrup
  • 2 tsp Chili Sauce
  • 2 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 3 Cloves Garlic (crushed)
  • Sprinkle Cajun Spice
  • For the Linguine:
  • 1 Package of Linguine
  • 4 Carrots
  • 2 Packs (17.5 oz / 500g) Button Mushrooms
  • 2 Tbsp Dark Soy Sauce


  1. Cook the linguine according to the package instructions.
  2. Slice the carrots and the mushrooms and add them to a pot with 2 Tbsp dark soy sauce, cover and turn to medium high heat.
  3. While the linguine is cooking in one pot and the mushrooms and carrots in another, start preparing your sauce.
  4. Mix all the sauce ingredients in a bowl and then whisk using a hand whisk to combine properly and set aside.
  5. When the mushrooms have released their water and are bubbling away with the carrots, remove the lid from the pot and allow some of the water to cook off.
  6. As soon as the linguine is perfectly al dente, remove from the stove, drain and rinse and then return to the pot.
  7. By this time the carrots and mushrooms will be cooked.
  8. Transfer the whole pot of mushrooms, carrots and the remaining water/soy sauce left behind into the pot with the linguine and mix in.
  9. The mushroom cooking water and soy sauce will create extra sauciness once you mix in the peanut, chili and garlic sauce.
  10. Now pour the peanut chili garlic sauce over the top and mix it all in well.
  11. You’re ready to serve!
  12. Serve with some crushed peanuts and fresh parsley or cilantro (optional) or some vegan parmesan cheese.
