Gurmevegan’s Traditional Summer Pasta Sauce with Plums

gourmet vegan damson plum pasta sauce

This pasta sauce which I developed by adding damson plums and fennel, has become a classic now. .It has such a delicious slightly sour and sweet pleasant taste that although it is in the summer, it does not feel weight after eating pasta.

220 gr. tagliatelle ( you can also use gluten-free pasta . It does not go well with legumes pasta. I recommend you to try a very good quality italian pasta like Rummo or a gluten-free variety.)
1 large damson plum (two plums if the plums are small, 80g of plums I use)
1 large san marzano tomato (approximately 250 gr.)
1 spoon of tomato paste
A branch of fennel with its root
1 mini carrot (optional)
2-3 cloves of garlic
2 tablespoons of olive oil
1 teaspoon of salt
1/4 teaspoon chipotle
Vegan parmesan, fennel leaves and edible flowers (optional) to serve


  1. Chop the garlic and fennel into small pieces. Cook with olive oil at low heat until soft. Continue to cook until soften at a lower temperature for 2 minutes by adding vegetables and tomatoes.
  2. When the tomatoes with plums soften and integrated with fennel and garlic, add the tomato paste. Then add the boiled water of the pasta around 1/4 cup. Cover the pot and cook over low to medium heat until the sauce thickens well.
  3. Add salt and chipotle and mix your sauce. If it is too dark, add more water and cook.
  4. Add your cooked pasta to the sauce and toss well. Pour over 2-3 spoons of pasta water, quickly turn 3-4 times over high heat and immediately turn off the heat.
  5. Divide betweeen plates. It can be decorated with thin fennel leaves and on top of vegan parmesan. Bon Appetit.
