This weird combination of food was our dinner last night. I made the Hurry Up Alfredo from “Vegan Yum Yum,” along with a spinach salad and a side of roasted okra (I discovered my love of roasted okra last summer).
The Hurry Up Alfredo is one of those recipes that definitely requires a good blender. I tried to make it a year or two ago in my food processor and the flavor just didn’t come out right, not to mention there were bits of raw cashews in the sauce. This time around, however, I was able to get it silky smooth and, wow, it was really, really good. It also lives up to its name because it comes together amazingly fast, making this a great weeknight meal. By the time the okra had roasted in the oven, the alfredo — pasta, sauce and all — was ready to serve.
I hope you all have a great week! I plan on making a few dishes that will make use of my Jungle Jim’s purchases and will post them soon.
