So I never once in my life considered being vegan and that’s mainly because I FUCKING LOVE CHEESE! And to be fair I’m pescatarian so I’m kinda close right? Well that changed just a few weeks ago. I wanted to get to the root of all my stomach and health issues (seperate blog touching more on that soon). So I started seeing a naturopath that put me on a new lifestyle change, I say that because I don’t prefer the term “diet”.
With this new change comes the no no’s…no dairy, no wheat, no nightshade veggies, no coffee, no alcohol (tragic I know), no white anything (rice, potatoes, sugar etc). I never realized how much I actually cooked with and incorporated both wheat and some dairy into my meals.
So with that, it was time to get creative. I got the pass from both the husband and child so that’s all I needed to hear! But not to toot my own friggen horn, it was pretty gosh damn good. So here it goes!
1 cup of coconut milk (use canned for thicker/full fat)
1 cup vegetable broth
1 tbsp coconut oil
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 tbsp minced garlic
1 tsp basil
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp 3 onion mix- epicure brand
1 tbsp nutritional yeast
1 tbsp almond flour (can use any flour you choose, no reg white though)
1/2 cup daiya shredded cheese (can use any vegan Parm cheese to thicken up sauce if you don’t like using corn starch)
Himalayan pink salt and pepper to taste
Brown rice fettuccine noodles
I used mushrooms, broccoli and green beans mixed with some meatless ground beef (I love the gardein brand!).
1. Since this sauce doesn’t take too long I started the noodles and veg right away. I don’t think I need to explain how to boil noodles. If you arent sure how to boil noodles but are trying out cooking vegan sauce I vote you go back and learn noodles first LOL. Use 1tbsp coconut oil in pan, or grape seed oil if you don’t like the taste of coconut. Cook veggies, add veef….jk I don’t think I like that word. Just made it up but it sounds too much like queef so just exnay that.
2. Add 1tbsp coconut oil to sauce pan, add garlic and all spices and herbs. Fresh herbs are always better for more flavor but if you’re a triple B…broke babe on a budget then dried works just fine. Let cook for 1 min, stirring.
3. Add the liquids, nutritional yeast and flour. Let cook 8 mins.
4. Add daiya shredded cheese to thicken (or vegan Parm, or corn starch if you don’t give a shit about it being made from alien modified corn).
5. Watch that bitch cook and thicken for like an extra 5-7 mins. Add salt and pepper to taste. Can also add more spices if you taste it and it’s bland. I usually just dump a bunch in but I gave you average measurements.
Watch the video to see my cooking process. Then maybe decide if this recipe is for you 😂.
Happy Cookin’ Ya’ll!!!
