You know how sometimes you have memories from your childhood that make you want to eat certain things? For me, that's Alfredo. I've been vegan for 7(ish?) years and never once have I craved cheese, but I do have a soft spot for Alfredo.
Growing up, my family would go to Bellini's after church on Sunday's and I would ALWAYS get the kids Alfredo pasta. It was definitely one of my top five favorite meals as a kid. And surprisingly, I never really tried to recreate it until recently.
This almond Alfredo is BOMB. It is creamy, flavorful, AND healthy! I seriously ate it at least four times in one week after creating it, and then I convinced my friend Katie to come over for lunch just to take a picture of it so I could share it with you!
So, without further ado, I give you - Almond Alfredo.
Warning: May cause addiction.
1 box of pasta noodles, your choice!
3/4 C Almonds
3/4 C Cashews
1 C Water
1/4 C Nutritional Yeast
1T Garlic, minced
1T Dried Parsley
1 Lemon, juiced
1t Black Pepper
Cook your pasta according to box directions.
As your noodles cook, add all of the sauce ingredients into a high-speed blender. Blend on high until smooth and creamy. Store in an airtight container in the fridge or serve immediately with pasta.
PRO TIP: Add some grilled broccoli or roasted brussel sprouts to your Alfredo! Maybe even some cooked spinach :)
