Vegan Cauliflower Fettuccine Alfredo with Kale
“In this date-night-worthy vegan fettucine alfredo recipe, cooked cauliflower transforms into a rich, luscious sauce when it's blended with softened cashews. A high-speed blender will give you the creamiest results. Opt for whole-wheat fettucine to add fiber to the vegan pasta recipe.”
½ cup fresh whole-wheat breadcrumbs, toasted
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
½ teaspoon grated lemon zest
4 cups cauliflower florets (1 small head)
1 cup raw cashews
8 ounces whole-wheat fettuccine
4 cups lightly packed thinly sliced kale
3 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons white miso
2 teaspoons garlic powder
2 teaspoons onion powder
¾ teaspoon salt
1 cup water
1Put a large pot of water on to boil.
2Combine breadcrumbs, parsley and lemon zest in a small bowl. Set aside.
3Add cauliflower and cashews to the boiling water; cook until the cauliflower is very tender, about 15 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer cauliflower and cashews to a blender.
4Add pasta to the boiling water and cook, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes. Add kale and cook until the pasta is just tender, about 1 minute more. Drain; return the pasta and kale to the pot.
5Add lemon juice, miso, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and 1 cup water to the blender; process until smooth. Add the sauce to the pasta and stir until well coated. Serve topped with the breadcrumb mixture.
