Vibrant Green Alfredo
2 nice handfuls of organic spinach
1/2 cup raw cashews
1 cup full fat coconut milk (save the rest from the BPA-free can for shakes!)
1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon chili powder
sea salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
1 nice broccoli floret, chopped
3-4 shiitake mushrooms, sliced thin
your choice of noodles, but you know I'm going to encourage brown rice pasta or rice noodles so it's gluten free!
Prepare your pasta or noodles as directed. While they are cooking, place about an inch of water at the bottom of a medium-sized pot and bring to boil. Place steamer at bottom of pot and throw broccoli florets in to steam. Throw in mushrooms for the last 2 minutes or so of steaming. Blend all other ingredients in a high speed blender (I of course use my NutriBullet for this!). It should be nice and creamy. Once pasta or noodles are done, rinse and drain well. Stir all ingredients together and serve. Add seasonings to your liking after your first bite. Enjoy the vibrant green color this dish brings. It was such a pleasure for my eyes, and my belly! I hope you enjoy.
