Our vegan version of Alfredo pasta trades the cream and butter for velvety coconut milk. Coconut milk is rich in lauric acid, which has antibacterial and antiviral properties.

INGREDIENTS

SERVES 5

  • 3 1/4 cups Coconut Milk, Canned
  • 1 tbsp Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 tbsp Onion Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Sea Salt
  • 2 cups Mushrooms, White Button, Raw
  • 1 cup Cherry Tomatoes
  • 1 1/2 tbsp Olive Oil, Extra Virgin

2 In a large bowl mix the mushrooms, tomatoes, olive oil and 1/2 tbsp salt.
