Whole-Wheat Bowties with Oil-free Alfredo


I had a delicious lunch of pasta with faux alfredo sauce from the McDougall Quick and Easy Cookbook. It's a great sauce- creamy and rich tasting. It's basically soft tofu with some tahini, nutritional yeast and garlic. I'd made sauces like this before, but without the tahini. Tahini makes everything better!

This dish is topped with my version of not-parmesan: ground almonds, ground flax seeds, salt.

Hey Natalie, Happy New Year!
I used to be vegetarian and latley I have been cooking with less and less meat. I have mortally serious dairy allergy--milk proteins, casien the whole thing. So vegan, kosher/paerve has become a way of life. I am moving toward giving up meat. Your site is cool and will be, I suspect a help to me!
Thanks for stopping by and do drop in again---if only to provide vegan moral support!
Happy New Year!

This looks fabulous--can't believe I actually already own this cookbook, and never saw this! (I tend to focus on the desserts. . . ). Can't wait to try it.
