I was supposed to do something a bit more complicated tonight, but I wasn't feeling great after walking in the cold. Working from home the second half of tomorrow, so I'll be fancy then.
In the meantime, nothing's easier than pasta in a cashew sauce. Luckily had broccoli and cherry tomatoes on hand to dress it up.
Slightly adjusted a She Likes Food recipe | Serves: ~4 | Time: ~20 min (after soaking)
8 oz pasta, I did #fettuccine
4 cups #broccoli florets
1 1/2 cups raw unsalted #cashews, soaked overnight or boiled for 30 minutes
1 cup + 3 tbsp plain, unsweetened cashew milk
2 tbsp nutritional yeast
2 tbsp chopped basil
1 tbsp chopped Italian parsley
2 tsp oregano
1 tsp fresh thyme leaves
1/4 tsp garlic powder
3/4 tsp salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
To make the Cashew Alfredo Sauce, add all ingredients into a blender and blend for 1-2 minutes, until smooth and creamy.
Cook the pasta according to package directions. When pasta is 3 minutes from being done, add the broccoli florets. Drain pasta and broccoli and add Alfredo sauce. Stir until combined and serve hot.
