Have you ever tried adding sun-dried tomatoes to Alfredo sauce? No? Well I suggest you must give it a go!⠀

By plantbased.traveler⠀

Recipe:⠀

Ingredients:⠀
1/3 cup sun-dried tomatoes in oil⠀
1/2 cup cashews *⠀
7 oz. extra firm tofu⠀
2 tbsp nutritional yeast⠀
3 garlic cloves (see tip)⠀
Juice of 1 lemon⠀
2 cups pasta water⠀
Salt to taste⠀

Plus:⠀
16 oz pasta of choice⠀
A few handful of baby spinach and some fresh basil⠀

*Soaked in hot water for 15 minutes for easier blending. You can omit this step if you have a high power blender!⠀

Method:⠀
Prepare pasta according to package directions. Reserve 2 cups of pasta water before draining.⠀
Add all ingredients for the sauce to your blender, and blend until smooth. Start with 1 cup of pasta water, and add more as needed.⠀
Sauté spinach until wilted (I use a splash of the pasta water for this), mix with hot pasta, the sauce, and top with fresh basil. Enjoy!⠀

Tip: Buy ‘dry’ sun-dried tomatoes, and add them to a glass jar, covered with good quality olive oil. I also add about 10 garlic cloves to the same jar, and use those for sauce or pesto.⠀
