creamy cashew alfredo sauce with zoodles



recently i had the opportunity to make dinner for a few friends and decided a ‘pasta night’ would be fun. since it has still been fairly warm here dairy-free alfredo zoodles seemed perfect because there’s no need to use the stovetop and even my non-vegan buddies always enjoy this cashew alfredo sauce.

so i grabbed a bunch of seasonally appropriate zucchini, pulled out my spiralizer and got to work.


what you add to this dish is up to you and there are a variety of options. one of my favorite taste testers has eaten plenty of the cashew alfredo sauce and he loves adding grilled chicken to create a chicken alfredo pasta with fresh tomatoes and basil from his garden.

love the tomatoes and basil and i’m a fan of having marinated mushrooms on hand while adding either micro greens, pea shoots, or sunflower sprouts. and always spread over a heaping plate of greens like a simple kale or arugula salad. obviously.


what you’ll need:

zoodles or pasta or choice

cashew alfredo sauce

micro greens, sunflower greens, pea shoots or sprouts of choice

optional: marinated mushrooms, croutons, kale salad, arugula salad

what to do:

place greens or salad mix on plate.

in a separate bowl, mix zoodles and cashew alfredo sauce well. layer over salad greens.

top with micro greens, shoots or sprouts, marinated mushrooms, etc.

    I’m always a little bit sceptical of spiral shaped vegetables but this recipe does look tasty! I think I’ll have to give the whole veg noodles thing a try because I keep seeing some super tasty-looking inspo! xx

    • Jessica says:

      depending on which spiralizer you purchase there are different shapes you’re able to make…the paderno i own has three different options-and i’m not an affiliate to paderno just a fan (:
