Course: Main Course
Cuisine: Italian
Servings: 4 people
Calories: 363.55kcal

Equipment

  • Blender or food processor
  • Stovetop
  • Medium Pot
  • Saucepan

Ingredients

Alfredo Sauce

  • 1 block tofu silken, firm
  • 1/4 cup coconut milk canned
  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast (if not available, use extra garlic powder or replace with vegan parmesan)
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper freshly ground
  • 1/4 tsp smoked paprika

Pasta

  • 8 oz fettucine dried or fresh
  • 1 cup mushroom raw, slices
  • 1 tsp olive oil extra virgin
  • 1/2 bunch flat-leaf parsley fresh, chopped

Instructions

Alfredo Sauce

  • Place all ingredients in blender (except parsley and olive oil), and blend until smooth.

Pasta

  • Bring a medium pot of water to a boil.
  • Add a pinch of salt, and pour in your fettucine. Cook until "al dente" texture is reached. Drain and rinse, then set aside.
  • Heat and grease (using olive oil) a saucepan, and fry mushrooms until most of their moisture is released.
  • Pour alfredo sauce into the pan with the mushrooms, and let simmer for 2-3 minutes.
  • Pour fettucine into the saucepan, and mix in with the sauce, allowing the pasta to absorb a bit of the moisture for about 5 minutes.
  • Serve by twisting your pasta into a bowl, and garnish with fresh parsley. Enjoy!

Notes

-For an even creamier sauce, add 1/2 cup of soaked cashews, 1 cup filtered water, and 1/4 tsp additional salt to your ingredients before blending. This, however, will increase the fat content.
