POPULAR MEALS-RAW FOOD ALTERNATIVES

Macaroni & Cheese- Mac & Cheese, Pasta Zucchini/squash noodles spiralized or kelp noodles, Pasta Alfredo-Pasta Alfredo

Pasta Alfredo

You can eat this alfredo pasta by itself but to really make it super filling and nutritious in I like to put it on a bed of spinach or even mixed greens. I like to add greens in when I can, after all it is a great source of high quality protein on the raw food diet, not to mention essential minerals like calcium.

raw Vegan Pasta Alfredo

The base for most raw alfredo sauce  is nuts.  I wanted to keep this a lower fat recipe so I used half nuts and half zucchini.  Zucchini adds a nice creamy texture, has a subtle flavor and keeps it much lower in fat. If you prefer you can omit the nuts altogether and just replace it with more zucchini.

Serves 2 large, or 3 smaller plates.

Recipe: For the pasta:

3-4 medium zucchini or summer squash, peeled and spliralized (if you don’t have a spiralizer  you can use a veggie peeler, a Julienne peeler, or a mandolin).  Place the noodles in a large bowl.

For the Alfredo sauce: 1/2 cup cashews, soaked overnight drained and rinsed, 1/2 cup zucchini, peeled and chopped in small chunks, 1 clove garlic, 1 Tbsp Thyme, 1 Tbsp lemon, (optional) 2 Tbsp Nutritional Yeast, 1/4 cup water, add more or less depending on the desired consistency

Blend all the above ingredients, except for water, in a blender.  Slowly add in the water until it is desired consistency.  Pour over noodles thoroughly mixing in.  Top with marinated mushrooms.

For the marinated mushrooms: 1/2 cup Cremini mushrooms, sliced, 1 Tbsp lemon juice, 2 Tbsp Olive oil, Garlic powder, sprinkle to taste

Slice the mushrooms and marinate in a small bowl with lemon juice, olive oil and garlic powder.  Marinate for at least 20 minutes. Use as garnish with some basil for the pasta.

Mangia and enjoy!
