For vegans seeking carb-free alternatives of popular food dishes, this Vegan Beet Pesto Pasta opts for cheese-free sauce that is made without any animal products. The dish is made using roasted beets that are pureed to give the pasta a bright pink color rather than a traditional green hue. Despite the lack of animal products, the dish is quite savory and filling.

The sauce for the pasta is made with cooked beets that are pureed and have a vivid rose color. The beets replace basil in the recipe, giving a much more wholesome and vitamin-rich addition to the dish that is accented with spices such as garlic, chives and red wine vinegar. The puree is topped over gluten-free pasta, coating the noodles entirely in the pink sauce. The beets help to clean the kidneys and blood, while providing a healthy dosage of vitamin C.
