Vegan Fettuccine Alfredo with Kale & Broccoli

 

You guys might remember a previous post where we made some alfredo, which seems like eons ago now. Check it – I was browsing the book of face and came across this recipe.
Although my fiancé does not care for onions, I figured I’d be sneaky and throw em in (and he’d be none the wiser). Well, he came home as I was making it, but even though he knew there were “onions in it” – he still loved it. It just goes to show that if prepared correctly – anyone can like anything!!! 😀 (Even me! haha)

Vegan Fettuccine Alfredo with Kale & Broccoli

Ingredients
Two medium white/yellow potatoes
1/4 white onion
1 Tbsp Italian seasoning (a blend of basil, oregano, rosemary, thyme, and black pepper)
1 tsp frozen grated lemon juice
2-4 cloves of garlic
1/2 cup cashews
1 tsp salt
1/2 – 2/3 package fettuccine pasta (I used gluten-free rice pasta)
1/2 a medium head of broccoli, chopped
1/2 a bunch of dino kale, ripped
1 package meat substitute (I used faux chicken) [optional as always]
Pepper to taste
Nutritional Yeast to top

Instructions

  1. Boil four cups of water in a small pot.
  2. Peel and chop the potatoes into small-medium cubes/wedges.
  3. Chop the 1/4 of an onion.
  4. When the water is boiling, add the potato and onion, and let boil for 10 minutes, or until soft.
  5. In another pot, cook the pasta as recommended on the package.
  6. In a blender, combine the 1/2 cup raw cashews with 1 cup of the water used to boil the veggies.  Note: DO NOT DISCARD THE REST OF THE WATER! You’ll see why shortly.
  7. Next, add the veggies, garlic, salt, lemon juice, and seasonings. Blend until creamy.
  8. Just a heads up – You will probably want to add more of the boiling water since it stays pretty thick with only one cup of water. I used about 2 cups.
  9. Add more salt to taste.
  10. Serve and devour! 😀

Serves 2.
