12 Minute Mushroom Alfredo

Ok guys I'm continuing on with the quick fast easy pasta recipes. This one has plenty added protein in it so it will keep you full longer. This sauce is just incredibly tasty, if you take out the mushrooms it makes an incredible white sauce for a lasagne. 

Lets dive into what your going to need, don't worry there is no soaking of ingredients so its really quick easy and takes no prep the night before. This recipe serves 2 but you can easy double the recipe if you need it to be bigger. Leave the rest of the silken tofu in a sealed container in the fridge and fry it up for a tofu scramble in the morning! recipe coming soon for that on here 


Serves 2 
160g-200g pasta (depending how hungry your are)
1/2 packet of silken tofu 
1/3 cup veggie stock 
1/2tsp garlic powder/granules
2tbs nutritional yeast 
pinch of nutmeg 
pinch of salt and pepper 
150g mushrooms any type will do (i used baby chestnut) 

As always get your pasta on to boil and set the 12 minute timer. Next place all your sauce ingredients in a blender (everything except mushrooms) and blend till nice and creamy. Now fry off your mushrooms in a little spray of olive oil until nice and golden (about 5 minutes) turn the heat down and the the sauce from the blender and heat for the remaining minutes. Once pasta is finished drain and place in sauce and coat, if you have a lot of pasta and the sauce has reduced too much just add a splash of the cooking liquid from the pasta. 

I hope you enjoyed this recipe, if you do decide to make this be sure to tag me over on instagram i love looking and reposting your recreations. Until next time, Helen xx
