Chickpea Alfredo with Watercress & Chives. The thing about alfredo that plagues me is the same thing that might be said about cacio e pepe, or macaroni & cheese, or carbonara — they’re dishes that I adore with all my soul, all cheesy, carb-y deliciousness, but that I eat woefully infrequently, because I somehow always talk myself into something with a little more greenery or a little more protein (and then I wish I went for the alfredo).

Chickpea Alfredo with Watercress & Chives

Imagine my delight when a recipe came into my life that offered both the satisfaction and bliss of a rich alfredo and the substance of a more protein-packed alternative — instead of cream and cheese, it turns out that soaked cashews (protein!) And chickpea flour (more protein!) Can combine with a little nutritional yeast, garlic, and salt and pepper to form, pretty simply, magic.

A chickpea alfredo is practically no-cook and all-blender, comes together in a matter of minutes, but is silky-smooth, every bit as creamy as a traditional alfredo, yet simultaneously lighter and more filling.

Happiness! No computer and no internet for a couple days, just sun, lot of children’s shooting, some reading… I need this (very) little break from everyday life. Creamy Mushroom Mac and Cheese. Crusty Baked Vegan Alfredo w/ Caramelized Shallots & Kale — dolly and oatmeal. When i was little my mom attended college full time. she went back to school after having my brother and i to change careers and fulfill her desire of becoming a psychologist. i know it couldn't have been easy with two little ones at home, especially during the week when my dad was at work. dinners were generally comprised of a prepared meal my mom had picked up, or some concoction of food my dad was going to make. but the few nights my mom had time to cook, she would occasionally make us her grandmother's macaroni and cheese recipe. like all good mac n cheeses, it started with a roux. from there, plenty of good-quality cheddar cheese was melted into the pot to make the creamiest, dreamiest mac n cheese which she finished with a dash of nutmeg. if there's a flavor i specifically remember from childhood meals, it's this one. it reminds me of warmth, love, and most importantly - ultimate coziness. wishing you cozy times!
