Creamy Vegan Chicken Alfredo

Well this comes from  talking about alfredo with my buddy last night and it made me hungry for some, so when I got up I knew what was gonna be for supper. I used this recipe here as a base here is what I did,

Creamy Alfredo

1 1/2 cups raw cashews 

2 1/2 cups water

3/4 cup coconut cream ( about half the can)

2 tbsp veggie stock

4 cloves minced garlic

2 tbsp nutritional yeast
1 tbsp black pepper

1 tsp sea salt

1 tsp onion powder

All that you need to do is add all the ingredients to the  blender and blend (now I added my nutritional yeast and onion powder after it was blended only cause I forgot to toss it in) . Now my mixture looked very watery so don't be alarmed, put on the stove at a med to low temp stirring almost constantly with a wire whisk. DO NOT BOIL this is very important cause it will get funky very fast. It will take about 10 min to thicken up the way to tell when its at its perfect creamyness is dip a spoon it, it should coat the spoon run your threw it it should leave a path.

Don't forget the nutritional yeast and onion powder like I did

All blended up.

Adding the left out ingredients.

Thickness test.

Perfect thickness.
Now you can cook up your favorite pasta and have have great meal or you step it up a notch and follow me on this one, chicken and green peas is the perfect combo with alfredo.  You can thank another one of my buddies for learning me about that, all I do is talk about food all the time. The next step some might say optional but i am saying its a must.

You need

1/2 pound chicken sub (your choice Delight Soy is the best one)

1 cup frozen peas

1 tsp oil

Heat your oil and toss chicken and frozen peas (the peas will be crackling so don't freakout). Cook till chicken starts to brown the turn down the heat add a ladle a scoop of the sauce into the pan to de-glaze it.

Now just cook what ever pasta you want serve it up.

Ladle the sauce on first then the chicken mixture.

Have fun and Enjoy!!!!
