When I first saw this recipe in Guy Fieri Food, it sounded really gross. Apparently it’s the recipe that won Fieri The Next Food Network Star, so I felt obligated to make it. Alfredo (yes, even vegan) is hard to screw up because it’s basically just a salty, creamy, rich sauce, so it couldn’t be that bad, right?
It was actually completely delicious. I used Beyond Meat instead of trying to figure out a more accurate turkey replacement because I really don’t think there’s a difference between turkey and chicken anyway, and also who cares because the sauce is the star here, anyway.
I’d hate to toot my own horn, but toot toot ya’ll! This pasta is delicious! It’s spicy and smokey and creamy and I made it 3 times before I decided it needed to go on the blog. I made the sauce in both a high-powered blender (like a Vitamix or BlendTech), and a regular ol’ food processor and both versions turned out great. The tomatoes add a sweet note and kale is just delicious is anything, but feel free to substitute whatever veggies you love. I added tempeh bacon this time around, but don’t put it in the recipe because it turned out a little too smokey for my taste.
The recipe’s below the cut!
