Creamy Vegan Mushroom Alfredo

Happy #NationalFettucineAlfredoDay !

Fettucine Alfredo is by far my FAVOURITE! But, being dairy free complicates that a bit. Yes, there are other alternatives, but nothing is quite the same as the real deal.

This may not be traditional, but it has all of my favourite ingredients, and it’s super delicious, easy and healthy!

It’s much lighter then traditional fettuccine when using rice noodles, but if you’d like to use regular pasta, that works as well!

  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 500 grams sliced mushrooms
  • 1 small onion diced
  • 3 large garlic cloves chopped small
  • ½ tsp himalayan pink salt
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • 2 tbsp spelt flour (or flour of choice) *GF Option: Use Gluten Free flour
  • 1 can coconut milk

Instructions

  • Slice and dice mushrooms, onion and garlic to prepare.
  • Bring a pot of water to a boil. Add ¼ tsp salt if you desire.

    Cook until onions have softened.

    Allow to cook for approx 2 more minutes medium-low heat.
  • On low heat, add coconut milk and stir. Reduce to a simmer after about 3-4 minutes. Add spinach and cover with the lid. Allow to simmer for 7-10 minutes, allowing the spinach to wilt and the sauce to thicken. Remember to stir every few minutes. Keep the sauce on very low heat.
  • Cook the rice noodles according to package. Once cooked, scoop noodles out and into the sauce pan. If the sauce is too thick, add 1 tablespoon at a time of the reserved noodle water.
    Mix to combine and serve!

Notes

*If you find the sauce tastes too much like coconut, add 1 tsp at a time of fresh squeezed lemon juice, taste and adjust as needed.
