Hoff's Chicken Alfredo

Hoff's Chicken Alfredo
Yields: 4-6 servings
meat-free, dairy-free, egg-free, oil-free, soy-free

Ingredients:
Sauce
  • 1 cup Raw Cashews
  • 12 oz. Silken Organic Tofu
  • 1 cup plain unsweetened Almond Milk
  • Juice from 1/2 Lemon
  • 1 Garlic Clove
  • 1 tsp. Sea Salt
  • 1 tsp. Garlic Powder
  • 1 tsp. Onion Powder
  • Pinch Nutmeg
  • Black Pepper (to taste)
Directions:
  1. Bring one large pot of water & 2 tbsp. Sea Salt to boil, cook Pasta till al dente according to directions
  2. Meanwhile, warm Chicken in a non-stick skillet until warmed through
  3. Using a Vitamix/NutriBullet, blend Sauce ingredients until smooth
  4. Drain Pasta, combine with Sauce & Chicken, heat through

 Hoff Thoughts: For a very smooth sauce, soak Cashews in water overnight or at least 4 hours; drain & rinse before using.  I try to stay away from processed "meats" but occasionally, I will indulge.  I wanted to see if Beyond Chicken could live up to all the hype & IT DOES!  It looks like chicken, it smells like chicken, it cuts like chicken & it TASTES like chicken both in flavor and texture.  Highly impressed!  Beyond Chicken comes in 12 oz. packages, but you'll find if you cut the strips into little cubes that you get a lot of chicken and don't really need to use the entire package for this dish.  Save it for another meal.
