Using a spiralizer to make vegan Alfredo pasta
Did you know that you can use a spiralizer to make a healthy version of traditional Alfredo pasta? Are you a vegan or health conscious person who used to love a good creamy Alfredo pasta sauce, but had to give it up? Many vegans love creamy cheesy pasta sauces, like traditional Alfredo sauce, and in this article I’m going to show you how to use a spiralizer and make a vegan Alfredo sauce.
To make a healthier version of Alfredo pasta you’ll need a blender and a tool called a spiralizer and a dose of creativity. The spiralizer that you can find online or in some specialty kitchen stores is sometimes called a spiralizer. Use the spiralizer according to its instructions with peeled medium zucchini, either on the thin or thick setting. If you don’t have a specialized tool, you can use a simple vegetable peeler and peel the zucchini to make noodles.
You can eat the zucchini noodles raw or steamed or sautéed with a little olive oil. If zucchini pasta isn’t your thing, you can use kelp noodles, buckwheat or quinoa noodles as a healthy substitute for gluten-filled white pasta. Now for the sauce. To make the Vegan Alfredo you will need some white nuts like raw macadamia nuts or pine nuts. In a pinch, blanched and peeled cashews or almonds will do.
Vegan Alfredo Sauce
1 cup of macadamia or pine nuts
1 cup coconut water (or 1 cup water + a pinch of stevia or other sweetener)
3 tablespoons raw tahini butter
2 teaspoons of white miso or chickpeas
juice of 1 lemon
1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
1 clove garlic
salt and pepper to taste
Blend all ingredients in a high speed blender. You can pour the sauce directly over the zucchini noodles or heat it slightly in a pot. No cooking necessary.
