I love pasta and pasta hates me.. A very sad love hate relationship is going on. When I first went vegan, I was really craving Fettuccine Alfredo. Bad news for me, that’s not vegan. So I went on an experiment food challenge to create fettuccine sauce. I’ve finally found the recipe to make vegan broccoli mushroom Fettuccine Alfredo and I just want to share it with you! 🙂 Before we begin, this recipe is not for those with nut allergies, so sorry about that.
You will need:
- 1 cup of almond milk
- 1/2 cup of cashews
- 1 teaspoon of minced garlic
- 1 tablespoon of olive oil
- handful of mushrooms
- 1 head of broccoli
- salt & pepper
- Spaghetti Noodles (I didn’t have noodles, so I am using udon noodles for this)
Step 1: Blend
Blend the cashews, almond milk and minced garlic. You want the sauce to be creamy so if it’s watery, add more cashews.
Step 2: Boil Noodles
While you’re blending you three ingredients, boil your spaghetti noodles. I ran out of noodles and the only noodles I had were thin udon noodles. It tasted fine, but I would stick with spaghetti noodles.
Step 3: Cut & Cook Veggies
Cut up your mushrooms and broccoli. I like my broccoli steamed; I used my microwaveable steamer for 2 minutes.
Step 4: Sautéed Mushrooms
With your 1 teaspoon of olive oil, put that and the cut mushrooms into a pan.. So basically sautéed your mushrooms. I have my pan on a medium heat.
Once broccoli and noodles are finished, place those items into your sautéed mushrooms pan. Now put your pan on a low heat (reasons why in step 6).
Step 5: OMG
Remember your mixed cashews? Are they done? Awesome, now put that mixture into the pan. Stir it up. Remember to keep your pan at a low heat! If it’s too hot, it will burn the sauce and washing that is no fun.
Step 6: Salt & Pepper
Just for some flavor I added some salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper (we all know I have a terrible obsession with cayenne pepper). If you still want more of a cheesy flavor, add some nutritional yeast! It’s super flakey and has a cheese flavor.
Now take your food out of the pan and put it into a bowl.
Step 7: Bon Appetite!!!!!!!
