VEGAN PASTA ALFREDO

This pasta is amazing. It’s rich, satisfying, and oh so creamy. The best thing about it is that it’s vegan. Everybody literally loves this one – including those who are not into healthy eating at all. If you don’t tell it’s vegan, people would not even realize.

The combination of super-healthy and satisfying ingredients makes you forget that there isn’t even a trace of butter or cream in sight. That’s what we love, right?

And here we go again: First you need to get the following ingredients …

1 avocado

½ cup cashews

1½ cup almond milk
2 Tbsp. nutritional yeast
½ lemon
½ Tbsp. spicy Dijon mustard
2 cloves of garlic
Salt
Pepper
Few dashes of turmeric, chili powder, red pepper flakes and cayenne pepper

You throw all of these in a blender and then toss the creamy sauce with the pasta. I like the Quinoa pasta from Andean Dream (http://www.andeandream.com). It’s the best in terms of consistency and taste.

Sometimes I add sauteed or roasted veggies like mushrooms, spinach and onion to turn it up a notch.

Makes enough to toss with 6 servings of pasta.
