You won’t feel deprived opting out from wheat pasta with these delicious (and easy) zucchini noodles (feel free to warm a crusty whole wheat baguette to go along with this easy and quick meal).

Zucchini Noodles with Alfredo Sauce (V)(P)


  • 2 large zucchini
  • 3⁄4 cup raw cashews, soaked for 4 to 6 hours (or overnight),
then drained
  • 2 garlic cloves

  • 1⁄4 cup nutritional yeast

  • 3⁄4 cup vegetable broth

  • 1 tablespoon lemon
  • Salt to taste

  • Freshly ground pepper
  • Basil or parsley for garnish


  1. Use a spiralizer to create zucchini pasta. Set aside.
  2. For the Alfredo, blend all ingredients in a high-powered blender. Transfer to a pan and warm on low heat, stirring constantly. Adjust taste with salt and freshly ground pepper. When warmed through, turn off the heat and place the zucchini noodles in the pan, stirring gently to mix. Serve immediately garnished with basil or parsley.
