Hemp Recipes - Mushroom Pasta

Creamy Mushroom Hemp & Herb Pasta Recipe

Easy, Healthy Pasta Recipe Made Even Better With New Zealand Hemp!

Mushroom Pasta Hemp Recipe - The Brothers Green

I think it’s fair to say that pasta is the ultimate comfort food.. Here is a healthier, lighter, tastier, dairy free version- just in time for our NZ winter!

This recipe is seriously easy. The best part is that you can easily adapt it by taking things out (eg. walnuts) and/or substitute ingredients that we have used by adding in things that you already have in your pantry/fridge.

Serves 4
30mins- prep and cooking time


  • 1 or 2 onions, finely chopped
  • 250g brown swiss and/or button Meadow Mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 1 tbsp chopped thyme leaves
  • 1/4 cup cashews, roughly chopped
  • 1/4 cup walnuts, roughly chopped (can use any nuts- pine nuts, almonds)
  • 2 tsp soy sauce
  • 1 cup mushroom stock (you could also use vegetable stock)
  • 400ml coconut cream
  • 250g Ceres Organic pasta of your choice (we used super grain penne)
  • ½ cup The Brothers Green Hemp Hearts (as little or as much as you like- don’t be shy)
  • 150g chopped spinach
  • The Brothers Green Hemp Seed Oil, Hemp Hearts and parsley to serve



  1. Prepare vegetables by finely chopping onions, crushing the garlic and slicing the mushrooms.
  2. Bring a large pot of water to boil and cook pasta according to packet instructions.
  3. Heat Blue Coconut coconut oil in a large fry on medium heat. Cook onions, mushrooms, garlic and thyme, with a good pinch of salt, for 5-10mins or until mushrooms and onions are soft. 
  4. Add the cashews, walnuts, soy sauce and the mushroom stock into the mushrooms. Continue cooking for another 5 or so minutes, until the mushrooms have soaked up most of the stock. 
  5. Then add the coconut cream, hemp hearts and spinach.
  6. Drain the pasta and add this in too. Season with a generous amount of salt and pepper.
  7. Leave it to simmer gently for 10 minutes to soak up the goodies!  
  8. Divide between bowls, drizzle with NZ Hemp Seed Oil, scatter with NZ Hemp Hearts and parsley. Taa daa!
