DAIRY-FREE LEMONY ALFREDO PASTA SAUCE

INGREDIENTS

1 can full fat coconut milk
1/2 cup nutritional yeast
4 cloves garlic, mashed
2 tb coconut oil (use butter/ghee if not vegan because the flavor will be primo)
2 tb tapioca flour or arrowroot flour (as a thickener)
juice of one lemon
1 tsp sea salt
2 tb Italian seasoning
1/2 tsp black pepper

Got no cookies today, I just got tonight’s dinner for you instead. Pair this DAIRY-FREE LEMONY ALFREDO PASTA SAUCE with your favorite pasta! This time I used Papardelle because i was feeling like some thick noods and apparently gluten, but Greg made me make his with Banza (high maintenance hubby jkjk) and loved it, so any pasta will do! This recipe makes about 1 1/2 cups of sauce, and it’s so good, you’ll probably just drink the sauce and forget about the pasta part all together. Maybe.

 

INSTRUCTIONS

In a small sauce pan on the stove over medium heat, add the coconut oil or butter and the crushed garlic.
Sauté for 1-2 minutes until garlic is fragrant.
Next, stir in the coconut milk, nutritional yeast, lemon juice, salt, Italian seasoning, and pepper.
Mix well.
Then slowly stir in the tapioca/arrowroot flour, ensuring no clumps, by constantly stirring.
Reduce heat to low and cover.
Remove from heat after 3 minutes and stir again to make sure sauce has thickened!
Pour sauce over cooked pasta and toss to coat well.
Garnish with parsley, red pepper, and sea salt!
Enjoyyyyyyy!
