Author: Lettuce Discuss… Hema & Mako
Recipe type: Alfredo Sauce
Cuisine: Vegan Italian
Serves: 3

Ingredients

1 Tablespoon of Olive Oil

4 Spring Onions

1 Cup Fresh Peas or a Tin of Peas

½ teaspoon of Sea Salt

½ teaspoon Pepper

¼ Red Pepper Flakes

¼ Thyme, dried

6 Tablespoons of Nutritional Yeast

3 Tablespoons of Gluten Free Flour

1 Cup Hemp Milk

For the Pasta

3 Cups of Pasta (We used Penne)

1 Tablespoon Olive Oil

Instructions

First, boil your Gluten Free Pasta Al dente style by adding 1 Tablespoon of Olive Oil to the water to prevent the pasta sticking together. While this is cooking… Lets make the Alfredo Sauce!

In a Wok add 1 Tablespoon of Olive Oil and add the Spring Onions and fresh green Peas, cook for 3 minutes.

Add Sea Salt, Pepper, Red Pepper Flakes, Thyme, mix well and cook for another minute to marry the spices.

Add Nutritional Yeast, mix well cook for another minute.                                                          (we use Engevita Nutritional Yeast found at our local health food store here in England, for the USA see icons below!)

Add Gluten Free Flour, mix the dry flour into the Veggies, cook for another minute, this gives the veggies a nice flour coating.                                                                                             (We use Doves Farm Bread Flour found at Tesco here in England, for the USA see icons below!)

Next, add the Hemp Milk, mix well, continue cooking for another minute until the milk is nice and hot. (We use “Good Hemp” found at Tesco or Asda here in England, for the USA see icons below!)

Finally, add your drained al dente Pasta, mix well, cook for 3 minutes, lightly stirring.          (We use “Free From” found at Tesco here in England, for the USA see icons below!)
