Recipe for Vegan Alfredo as requested :)
I’m still working on it but here’s what I did last night:
1 head of steamed cauliflower.
3-5 cloves of garlic roasted in the oven on non stick pan
garlic/onion powder to your taste
pepper to your taste
red pepper flakes
1/2 cup low sodium veg stock
Put everything except the red pepper flakes and basil into a blender and blend until smooth. Add more or less liquid depending on your preference. Then just pour it over pasta or veggies or whatever you like and top it with basil and red pepper flakes.
SUPER SIMPLE!!! Because this recipe is low sodium it’s definitely missing something right now. It just needs something to bring out the flavors. I’m going to keep experimenting and if anyone has any ideas let me know! I think I’m going to use yukon gold potatoes instead of cauliflower next time. Or maybe adding in diced tomatoes or blending corn with it or something. I’ll let you know what I come up with :).
Here’s an easy way to turn 6 super cheap ingredients into lunch for four people.
Olive oil and vinegar dressing (actually any vegan salad dressing will do so long as it’s savory and has an oil base)
How to do it:
Start off by tearing up broccoli and cauliflower florets with your hands. Put them in a frying pan set to medium high and pour the dressing in (a dab will do you just fine) and cook for five minutes.
Add two cups of veggie stock and a cup and a half of water and turn up the heat, bringing the whole thing to a boil. Then once the boil is rolling, dump in your rotini. Use only as much as will sit a quarter inch below the water line.
Now once it starts boiling again (it’ll stop for a moment) cover the pan with a lid and turn down the heat to medium. Allow to cook until pasta is tender, then drain. Add a little more salad dressing and just a smidge of marinara to give it a little sweet and savory kick. Serve it hot or cold, it’s fucking bomb both ways.
Recipe is not vegan but idea is so cool! You can make a vegan version by using a vegan bread recipe or Pillsbury crescent rolls (they are vegan!)
