Good Morning! I hope you caught my latest episode of Home & Family on Hallmark Channel! Here is the recipe for my “Skinny Jeans” Fettuccine Alfredo I shared on the show 🙂 I hope you enjoy! And here’s more info on the Bisogno Pasta I used in the segment! Make sure to follow me on social media to learn more about my cooking classes at Whole Foods!
“Skinny Jeans” Fettuccine Alfredo
1 large head of cauliflower
3 cups vegetable broth
2 tbsp. vegan butter (I use Earth Balance)
1 tbsp. olive oil
1/2 onion, sliced
6 cloves of garlic, sliced
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 tsp. salt
fresh ground pepper to taste
Cut off any bottom leaves of the cauliflower and cut out the toughest part of the core. Then break the cauliflower down into florets. Boil them with the vegetable broth uncovered until the cauliflower is very soft and tender. About 15 minutes.
While the cauliflower is cooking, heat a large frying pan and saute the onion and garlic with the Earth Balance and olive oil until soft.
When both are done, using a slotted spoon, remove all the cauliflower from the broth and place in a blender or food processor. Add 1 cup of the cooking broth, all the contents of the frying pan, the nutmeg and salt. Puree on high until very smooth, 3-4 minutes. Add a little more broth at a time if it needs to be thinned. Add pepper to taste.
Serve with fettuccine and serve warm.
OPTIONS: Drizzle the finished fettuccine alfredo with some truffle oil for something really special! Add red chili flakes to kick up the heat on your pasta! Or saute asparagus, mushrooms, squash, tomatoes, broccoli, or any other veggies you like and add on top!
Hi Leslie, just saw this on Home & Family. I was wondering, what is the brand of pasta that you used? I’ve been looking for more vegan and gluten free options and would love to try it!
Hi Rachel, On the show, I use Bisogno Pasta which is made from lentils. You can find it on their website: bisognopasta.com 🙂
Thanks so much! Can’t wait to try it with the recipe 🙂
Aw man, I’m SO BUMMED I can’t make your Whole Foods class! But this sounds delicious – Abe loves cauliflower. We will make this for sure!
