Garlic & White Wine Pasta with Brussels Sprouts
The standards have been relaxed and the government is trying to relax them further — by ruining organic altogether it seems. I want to try this one too but not everyone in my family likes Brussels sprouts. Yum yum superior deliciousness! You bring some sanity to a world filled with hype and headlines. Only assumptions based on similarity to estrogren. It turned out great!

The only people who need to make a point of avoiding soy lecithin are those with severe soy allergies or chemical sensitivities, and of course, those who notice that they personally react badly to it. For example, Enjoy Life is one popular brand of chocolate that is soy-free. Ultimately, I think most people can just enjoy their occasional chocolate treat without worrying about whether it contains soy lecithin.

Thanks for your support! Theobroma Chocolat is a Canadian product unfortunately you can only buy it online if you live in the US but Canadian consumers can find it almost everywhere. With all the negatives about soy…I could say the same about sunflower.
It is everywhere and in everything. I do ok with soy, but not the sunflower. I changed from a sunflower lecithin supplement to a soy lecithin version, to avoid intestinal pain and pressure.
Lecithin has significantly reduced my cholesterol, improved my energy and motivation levels. No amount of natural foods improved these situations.
It is all quite complicated. Lecithin has been known to drastically increase the amount of semen secreted during male ejaculation. By as much as three times the usual amount. Most US soy is genetically modified, as we all know. Why is it genetically modified? And who modified it? The answer is easily found. Monsanto yes, the poison-manufacturing giant genetically modifies soy, among other things such as maize.
This means the plant can withstand the incredibly potent herbicide, Roundup, while all else dies around it. This makes it easy to grow and keep the crops free of weeds without doing much work and boosts sales for Monsanto. Consuming Roundup causes leaky gut syndrome. When insects eat Roundup-sprayed plants, their stomachs explode. When humans eat the stuff, their gut gets lots of tiny holes because we are so much larger.
However, children suffer far more than we adults. Leaky gut causes temperamental problems such as irritability, short temper, hyperactivity and restlessness.
A good, clean diet with plenty of probiotic food, as well as eliminating the cause, can help repair the gut. The USA has Roundup everywhere. It contaminates the water, soil, air and, of course, crops. Cows eat GM Roundup-ready maize and they also suffer gut problems. The Roundup, via the consumed maize, enters the milk which we buy and drink.
Monsanto should be boycotted and eliminated from existence at all costs. This might sound radical, but they are causing harm far greater than any of us realises. Yep I have been reading all ingredients before I buy. The awful thing are moms are still buying baby junk,.
I rarely buy boxed food etc etc try to get most items organic and still wash them, your information is true and very informative. Sugar, salt and processed foods are killers and is whats making us sick. Sugar is more addictive then cocain and causes inflammation and that causes diseases.
This is high school bio lab stuff here. Plastics have been proven disruptors of hormones for at least a generation. The longer we use them for toys and bottles, the more evidence we collect. New plastics are also being developed as we speak! This is proven; while soy still has no evidence against it even GM soy — only speculation. Soy products in general have been consumed for more than just a few generations, but by the oldest civilization still around today — long before Europe was even a thought.
Meanwhile, we have seen the complete opposite in terms of health in the rest of the US population in just the last 3 generations! Clearly, plastics are not all there is to blame and we need more human studies. This is how mercury levels rise as you go up the food chain in fish. The same process happens with land animals. Penicillin is deadly in dogs and rats have livers relative to 5x our own; non-human animal studies are not good enough.
Hi Mirna — Thank you for your detailed comment. Those of us in the nutrition world need to stop vilifying soy and phytoestrogens because both have been shown to be protective. A few meta analyses concluded that soy helps women avoid breast cancer and recurrences. The protective effect increases with earlier introduction of soy to the diet.
I agree that highly processed soy is probably not helpful, but tofu, tempeh, edamame, miso are clearly foods to regularly include in the diet. Tofu and edamame are not fermented therefore can harm the thyroid. Fermented non GMO soy is fine. I will also say that I have seen no such label in feed stores for use on domestic animals. Dietary emulsifiers impact the mouse gut microbiota promoting colitis and metabolic syndrome Chassaing, — https: G6PD deficiency hemolytic anemia?
Have your doc do 24hr. It increases periferins enzymes in the liver, resulting in corproporifria sp? And I believe that I read somewhere that it stops the absorption of beta carotene.
My symptoms… Thyroid levels normal, but not normal for my body! I was feeling so bad that I gathered all of the foods that I was eating to find a common denominator and research those ingredients. I was astonished to enter soy lecithin — waste.
I decided to eliminate it for one month and I was astonished again. After two weeks, my hair loss started to subside and I started to feel well again.
After one month, my hair stopped falling out was per day vs. Also, he has been completely bald on top for 20 years and now has some hair there. Additionally, not changing the amount of food consumption and within a few months, I dropped 10 lbs now lbs. Eliminating soy lecithin is difficult; however the food is great. The homemade bread only ingredients and lasts longer than store-bought.
I use a bread-maker, put it in pans to cook, and cut with electric knife. You can also make great buns with the same recipe. Around 8 months ago, all of the cheese brands started putting soy lecithin in it.
My brother was going to have a hair transplant and he decided to try the elimination… It worked and he has a lot of hair now. His wife pulled me aside to tell me that she could not believe how much better his mood was!
He is a little annoyed that he has to read all of the ingredients, but he is getting used to using certain products. It is my belief that soy lecithin causes a lot more damage to our bodies than the experts realize. If you are having any of the symptoms above, I highly recommend that you try eliminating it, at least for one month!
I have sent many emails and told many doctors, but it seems that no one pursues this issue. I pray that someone will work to get it out of our food! Be careful its in everything. The joys of going totally soy free is not fun. Everything made by Bayer the aspirin contains soy. Neosporin contains soy, magnesium stearate, a pill filler is made from soy. All my meds are compounded. Most pill casings are made from soy.
Mouthwash and toothpaste contain soy. All natural toothpaste now contains soy. Toms toothpaste contains soy. Most of all BBQ sauces contain soy. Smoke flavor is made from soy. The last thing I had to remove, that contain soy in my system, was a root-canal done years before. The filler had soy in it.
But beware it comes at a cost. I cant go into stores, the perfume in the air contains soy, cleaning product contain soy. Everything I eat I make from scratch. If I dont grow it, it gets peeled. Using a knife to cut into a avocado is a bad idea, pushed the wax into the mix. I know who is lying. And who forgets to put it on there labels.
Air and blood, I can drink water to flush in 2 hours. Food takes hours to pass. Thanks for all the specifics. I am slowly trying to eliminate. So I usually try to voice my displeasure to the producer!! My son 5 is severely allergic to soy and has been since birth. He also has a digestive disorder and soy is a huge trigger for that as well. My son is having allergic digestive kind reactions in my sister pool. The hair loss could be caused by the estrogenic activity of the lecithin.
The lecithin may be increasing estrogenic activity and effectively giving you too much estrogen, or the phytoestrogen in the lecithin may be interfering with your body metabolising your own estrogen. Too much or too little estrogen can both affect hair. I have sunflower lecithin in my smoothies every day. I will see if eliminating the lecithin helps. That would be amazing!
It is a phospholipid, not a phytoestrogen. I concur and if you happen to have an adverse reaction to it, as I do, even small amounts are quite damaging. Only the skin test showed A bump showing mild SOY allergy. The chances of it being the lecithin exclusively is very slim. The amounts taken in on a normal diet even of unhealthy food is small comparatively speaking. Since the food companies seem to now be putting Soy Lecithin in almost all manufactured product this is creating a problem that has yet to be addressed and done something about.
According to Thorne Research, Phosphatidyl Choline from soy does not have estrogenic issues so I assume that applies to basic lecithin as well. The other issue besides Soy being so unhealthy is that the latest research is that emulsifiers seem to contribute to IBDs and possibly diabetes. They are in so many food products that even if you eat relatively healthy prepared food or even some food ingredients you end up eating a lot of gums and soy lecithin.
What about sunflower lecithin? This it promoted by Dr. Ben Lynch as a method for delivering phosphatidylcholine and other phospholipids to people who may need it with MTHFR gene mutations.
Hello, Could you please tell me if Shaklee supplements are ok? Almos all of the hVe soy lecithin asan ingredient or soy isolate. I have hypothyroidism, and was told to avoid soy. I think shaklee is organic it should be if not for the price many of the supplements its the last ingredient. Anyway I would just like to know if its safe in there supplements for my thyroid. Thank you so much!! I started a course in nutrition and learned about soy lecithin as in to avoid.
I have since picked up all my daily products I consume and have found it in everything! It is shocking and sad. What is wrong with out corrupt food industry?! I have set up my marketplace for beauty foods and I test all the products to make sure they are clean. I am trying to use as many beauty foods to swap them for non beauty foods in order to escape additives and preservatives and artificial nasties.
I think we need to demand more from the food industry. Hope you are all well! This is what I am running into my daughter and I are both dairy free so in replacement we drink almond milk well there is soy lechithin in them. What milk alternatives can we drink that are actually good for you then?
It is in the refrigerated section in a curved bottle. It is dairy and soy-free and made without carrageenan as well.
It is expensive, but worth it to me. They make several flavors including a almond-toasted coconut one, and their coffee and seasonal products are dreamy as well! I raise nubian goats and mix my feed mix to not include soy meal,oil or liechtin and drink the milk.
I was drinking Califa milk but found they use guar gum or one of the gum in it. Calcium and magnesium salts are insoluble in water and will sink to the bottom. Fats are not miscible with water and will float on the surface. No amount of stirring or heating will cause these ingredients to stay together as a mixture. To get these ingredients to stay together you need an emulsifying agent. Lecithin is the most commonly, produced emulsifier by nature in animals and plants.
It exists an all milk products from animals, cows, goats, etc. I am more concerned about avoiding detergent products such as sulphonated alkylbenze acids, alcohol ethoxylates and their sulhonated salts in foods. These are chemicals I was once involved in manufacturing for use as active ingredients in shampoo, dishwashing and laundry detergent products.
They are used in some processed foods as replacement emulsifiers. Lecithin is known as natures detergent. There are some plants which, when beaten in water release enough lecithin to be used to clean body and hair by natives in various parts of the world.
When consumed, lecithin can act as a natural cleanser in the body, both in the digestive system and the blood stream. The important thing to remember, with lecithin and all other material we consume is an old adage used in the chemical industry. Some doses can be accumulative. That is, small amounts over a period of time. To the best of my knowledge, nobody has established any harmful dosages for lecithin.
I think much research needs to be done. Or make your own non-dairy milk. I have started taking a supplement which contains Soy Lecithin 98 percent oil free mg.
Breast cancer runs in the family not a lot, one person, my mother so this concerns me. Does the oil free part make it ok? Just wanted to comment on the cancer concerns and to write all those who find their way to these helpful comments from everyone. First, people with cancer are almost always found to have low Vitamin C and D levels as well as other deficiencies.
All of us trying to do the best and often find it to be very difficult to find and consume only health foods. The problems with so many food poisons are definitely engineered this way on purpose. After all, the biggest food producer also owns and profits when people need their drugs. A person who eventually dies from any disease… is often actually dying of scurvy.
Ebola bleeding of the mouth is scurvy. Toxins, cancers, snake bites poisons, viruses, infection are all cancelled out by Vitamin C; while also being helped by other sources of nutrition. Another Dr published book talks of how he took high doses of D; helping rid a host of chronic problems.
Take the time to study nutritional supplementing because its so important today. Calcium can become deadly builds up in the blood — clogging your system if not balanced with K2 and or magnesium and yet no one ever educates students of these life critical truths in 12 years of schooling — health classes. I believe even this is intentional.
It is no coincidence iodine was removed from bread conditioners replaced by poisonous bromine which is toxic to thyroid function- making most breads toxic. This happened in the early 70s; just as synthetic thyroid was developed and put on the market. As a result, today 1 in 10 people take it this medication; not realizing the true cause of their problems. Chlorine, bromine from most breads and fluorine all consume iodine which is an essential element to thyroid, health, immune system function, sleep cycles, pituitary gland etc.
If you look up old newspapers, you can read articles from doctors in the 30s who would write articles to local papers. They sought to to inform the public what the symptoms of iodine deficiency were. Their lives were totally turned around transformed by taking iodine supplementation.
This says a lot because doctors today are wrongly educated by big pharma told -that salt gives us all sufficient levels and that this negates the need for us to test for the need to supplement. If you want to stay healthy, develope a good non-gmo supplement program.
Coincidentally, there has never been a max dosage of C in IV form found to be deadly. A great doctor from Oregon Linus Pauling tried to bring this information forward in the later s. He had spent years confirming by his research the many benefits of Vitamin C and compiling his and research of others.
He was wrongly discredited by doctors who were paid by big pharma. His original articles that brought forward his claims were challenged by dishonest Pharma drs. Pauling immediately sought to counter these allegations but pharma made sure that AMA journal and others would not publish his rebuttal of their claims. This control that dishonest money has on our system is why USA has the 49th lowest life expectancy. Thank our corrupt system. Here is a reference to the Pauling Institute website which also has a lot of good info.
I was told to avoid soy by my oncologist. I wanted to buy a protein drink but it has soy in it. Mostly everything I want to buy has soy. How dangerous is soy for a cancer survivor? If you get organic soy-made products, the link to such things is moot.
I am a breast cancer survivor. I, too, would get very bad pseudo menstral cramps whenever I ingested any soy products. I even had to switch my brand of multivitamins because the soy lecithin in the vitamin would trigger my cramping. I was thinking of buying Alpha GPC choline but do not want the soy lecithin that it is made from. Do you know an Alpha GPC choline that is made from sunflowers?
I would like to enhance my acetylcholine production to help with me sexually. I am male, Does sunflower lecithin produce acetylcholine significantly? I was diagnosed with CLL two years ago. I am still at O, it is not progressing so far. I started taking soy lecithin for short term memory loss. My question is will soy lecithin trigger my blood cancer into high gear? Consuming any soy isoflavones, disrupts endocrine activity, which in turn may have a carcinogenic affect.
Joe — That is a really dangerous thing to tell someone. Especially if you are not a doctor. Ruth — There are alternatives to soy lecithin. Still check with your doctor before taking any supplements. I have read through a lot of the comments but not all.
It seems pretty clear that very many people have serious problems with soy full stop, and I think we need to be honey with ourselves as a race and say that ultimately it should be banne on this earth and not to seek to justify its use ever if there is any alternative, as a matter I principle even if we have no personal reaction to it. However, I am flabbergasted to not have found ONE single mention here, especially by Chris Kresser although I may have missed it to sunflower lecithin, which has to be far superior and causing no problems for virtually all people.
Again I may have missed it but it should not be hard at all to find at leat one reference to it, certainly in Kressers main article itself. Am I missing something here? Lecithin is used as an emulsifier, to bring two liquids together that would not otherwise dissolve with one another. Soap emulsifies water and oil. Its in pain, Sheetrock, sheet rock mud. Killing America by soy. Mention was made in the third paragraph of the article: Most lecithin used in scientific testing yes.
Then the food companies piggy back off this information that people blindly misinterpret and just assume that if lecithin is good; Soy lecithin must be too. If you do a bit more research outside of government moderated websites and this one; you will find a whole lot of eye opening information to do with this harmful additive. There is no business in soy lecithin being inside our consumables other than the fact it lines the pockets of the companies which are spending much less money on purchasing this, over more of the whole food ingredients.
Like Chris says, keep things in perspective. Why does something with such little good benefit, and such large defects, be so widely produced and used? Because soy is one of the cheapest and economic crops to run. No other crop would yield such a result.
And if you want to look at it from a different perspective all together; thousands of soy farmers now, India especially, are taking their own lives due to crop failure from the failure brought about by the toxic waste sprayed, injected and genetically modified. Another thing to consider is that, if you want to continue being a farmer in some situations, you need to buy a Monsanto GM seed to continue growing. Think of nature too which is being affected.
Once a grass eating animal, is now fed soy and other grains, which fattens then twice as fast and matures them significantly quicker too. And in turn more and more soy is needed to be planted and harvested, in which forests are being destroyed in order to achieve this. I Think it should be removed from all our foods that we consume.
I have had breast cancer twice, and this last time, it came because I was not aware of what soy does to your body, and I was drinking soy milk almost on a daily basis. I now read all ingredients on many food packages, and try to eat only fresh as everything is made with soy.
How many people are you saying have problems with it? I think he is just stating that it is very rare really. I am 40 and never heard of it till my daughter had soy sensativities!
But now I guess I know two people. You would be very surprised at how many people have this allergy it is becoming a very large number. I want it to alter my estrogen metabolism. Since I started eating soy and other foods high in phytoestrogens my hormonal cystic acne is gone and my cellulite has greatly reduced. I hardly have any cellulite now. Soybeans contain isoflavones, which are chemically similar to estrogens. Soybeans are a complete protein source and a dietary staple in many cultures.
Soy contains phytoestrogens called isoflavones that may mimic the activity of the hormone estrogen in your body. Your body was producing to much test testosterone if you a woman this is bad but if your a guy eating soy products because your slowly turning yourself in to an emotional re.
Crazily enough — since I cut out soy my cystic acne is gone. Just goes to show that women are not one size fits all. Your improvements may be because of improved cell membrane function or better metabolising of fat, or other effects lecithin can have. Even allowed the sugar I can have..
But here is a brain thought for you. When you are born boys have sperm and girls also have eggs.. They have no eggs or something has just happened to change all that. I totally believe it is a additive that they are putting in the food. Also the theory of us being lab rats without consent is another thing I believe is happening.
Thanks for the information you did a great job giving us the facts and I appreciate your time doing so. I used to have candida about 10 years ago. Besides what you took away from your diet you should drink kefir. Stuff brought me back to normal. Also just an FYI, I had my child at the age of 33 which is well over 25 and I see a lot more women having kids older.
Not sure why you see a decline. If one is not consuming these poisonous creations, it can be beneficial in the right not huge! I am recovering from estrogen-based breast cancer and my breast cancer surgeon told me to get rid of everything that has soy since it is a Phytoestrogen and creates estrogen. Plus I have to take estrogen-blockers for the next years to keep the estrogen from coming back.
When she told me to throw out everything with soy, I had no idea how much soy is in all of our food, hair and skin products, not to mention pet foods. Estrogen is now being linked to prostate cancer. Go through your cupboards and you will be surprised, actually frightened. Soy is one of the top 8 allergens but it is more than just an allergy it can cause loss of life if not caught in time.
Dont, chickens are fed soy, from experience. I cant eat more than one egg without having a soy reaction. I also had a bad reaction when I ate eggs. But I just bought a new chocolate chip that used sunflower lecithin instead of soy and I noticed I was still having my usual soy reaction.
I was wondering if it was the lecithin I was reacting to. Have you ever noticed this? Because I have had cancer 12 years ago now and I did take estrogen before that , and more recently had two years of eczema, I had chemical patch testing done.
Robin, the 3 foods you just mentioned above have nickel in them. Soy oil, sunflower oils, chocolate. There is a while list of foods. Still doing a lot of research though. Why write some stories as there are studies on the estrogen in soy lecithin. They say that part is removed, extracted and only the purest lipids are used. The product is tested by several third party labs, nanograms of DNA are extracted from the product sample, cleaned, treated with the reagents necessary and amplified over 50 cycles.
They say to date from to current no gmo is detected in the final product. What is one to do???? I have retested after my final round of shots last month every 2 months for 12 months and have very few allergies now!
After the 2nd shot I no longer had signs of eczema, inability to swallow, acid reflux, etc. Arbonne products are soy, gluten, and GMO free! This article explained some things I was unaware of. I am hypothyoridic also and just discovered how much Iodine helps!
And due to farming processes and it being taken out of bread and milk, almost everybody is way deficient. The RDA is mcg when in fact we need as much as x that. And yes, I was wondering about soy lecithin affecting my thyroid. So thanks for clearing that up. My 5yo son has an allergy to legumes.
Soy is a huge trigger food. He just started Kindergarten and wants to do everything all the other kids do. It makes him feel different. He gets severe eczema when ingesting legumes. His entire infancy, he was covered head to toe in massive crusty rashes. Now I know and monitor his consumption and treat when necessary. So I picked a cookie that had soy lecithin as an ingredient near the bottom of the list and told her he could only have 2 on seldom occasion.
My son also has the same reaction from beans, peas, peanuts, etc. Why would the teacher request that of a highly allergic child? Screw her and make your own treat for your child. You are an amazing mum! Best luck to both of you! For those who have a soy lecithin allergy, could you share your symptoms? I have been avoiding it for years because every time I eat something containing it bread, cheeses, chocolate, etc I develop a severe sinus infection within hours.
But occasionally I would still get them in spite of avoiding those products. And I could have organic soy with no reaction. I recently learned that hexane seems to be the culprit.
I cut out canola oil, margarine, and a few other products with commonly high hexane carryover and it has eliminated the sinus infections, except for the occasional slip up.
My body is so sensitive to soy that I will know by the best morning, at the latest, if I have consumed something with soy in it the night before. It is noticeable to people around me. It can be a few days for it to all go down. Sometimes a mild headache but it is more the swelling — I hate it. It has turned grocery shopping into a chore. Top with the low carb red sauce and cheese and put them back in the oven.
Bake for an additional 5 to 10 minutes until the cheese has fully melted. Serve with a side salad or over zoodles and enjoy!

Your email address will not be published. Low Carb Meatball Casserole Recipe. Just so impressed with this delicious recipe! Brussels for the win! Just made this for a quick dinner and it was amazing. Really great recipe for vegans and non-vegans alike! I just made this and I HAD to comment. It was soooo freaking good and easy to make though I went a bit wild with the number of dishes I created..
I made mine with broccoli and topped it with red pepper flakes — and served with a side of wine ; will definitely make this again!! This looks like such an amazing meal! So many people think that sprouts are just one for one or two days of the year and end up not making the most of this seasonal and healthy produce!
Great recipe to include sprouts in a quick and easy meal! I like the concept, but the sauce was bland and flavorless. Also made for a lot of dishes, between roasting the sprouts, cooking the pasta and sauce, and blending the sauce. Not worth the effort in my humble opinion. I also cook a lot with white wine and it always adds a great flavor. Salt improves the flavor too. I like the white wine addition in this sauce. I made this last night and it was soooooo yummy.
I do not have dairy intolerance so I used whole milk and cheese in place of the non-dairy alternatives. I did not transfer the sauce to a blender, but instead used my immersion blender directly in the saucepan. I was concerned because my sauce frothed up likely because of the milk , but after warming it back up on the stove, it incorporated just fine.
I suspect mine was thicker because of the use of dairy, so I had to add more white wine fine by me! I absolutely loved the consistency of the sauce! The roasted sprouts pair perfectly with the flavorful white sauce, especially the crispy bits!
Thank you for concocting hearty and satisfying meat-free recipes! So, I made this tonight, but I had to make some adjustments, Dana. But the splattering of the wine to oil was a huge mess! My pan was probably too hot-my fault. I started over and subbed for flour after sautéing the garlic, then I added the wine. I also switched from olive oil to vegan butter. Thank you for the delicious recipe!! Just made this and loved it. We made a couple changes — 12 oz pasta, real parmesan cheese, and we only had 12 oz brussel sprouts on hand.
But still, it came out amazing! Definitely going in my recipe binder. Added some simple sautéed chicken for my husband and nephew. RAVE reviews and totally clean plates from everyone! Will try adding some roasted mushrooms to the mix next time. Made this last night and it was SO good!
I think my only mistake was letting the sauce get a bit too thick, and maybe overcooking the pasta because it became a little sticky. I used a food processor instead of a blender to blend the sauce which worked perfectly. Mine had more than enough flavor! Well, I thoroughly enjoyed this dish.
The only sub I made was cashew milk instead of almond- I think that made the sauce a bit goopier; but it was very tasty. My 6 year old liked it and even ate some brussels sprouts—score!
Thanks for this recipe—Your site is making my health-related dairy and egg free existence tolerable! This recipe turned out so well, and my non-vegan husband liked it very much, despite having no exposure to nutrition yeast, and he even helped prepare the sauce.
All of his former skepticism disappeared when he tasted it! So much healthier than the fettuccine Alfredo that he had eaten and felt rather sluggish after the week before. Thanks so much for all your recipes — your website is great! I just made this. It was really goood. There was just enough for our family and it was cheesy and yummy.
However, because of not being vegan I did change it slightly so I will post what I did here in case someone else wants to do it as well. I sauteed some garlic and then instead of wine I used chicken broth. Then I added half n half instead of milk because I had it on hand. Then I added colby jack cheese about a cup.
It came out very tasty. When all was done I mixed it up and ate it up. Of course my picky son did not eat the spouts part of it, but like I stated in the beginning-the pasta was devoured! Another Hit… I am no chef… But the minimalist baker is my first stop when I am looking to cook something new and delicious… I have never been let down by a recipe and this one is no exception.
So I do not eat pasta often, but when I do this is an amazing recipe with lots of flavor. I add sautéed mushroom and zucchini and sprinkle feta on top. Like next level good. I had this tonight with sweet potato noodles! Not necessarily bad, but unfortunately will not keep well. We both loved it! I look forward to making this again.
Especially as I hope that the coordination of the roasting, sauce and pasta boiling will be easier next time I get flustered with multiple things due at the same time: I used fresh vegan pasta, which only needs to cook a few minutes, so I switch the pasta pan on when the sprouts go in the oven and work on the sauce in the meantime.
I have read over a few of your recipes- amazing! I love-love your approach to food! You have such a passion for what you do! Even the timing for the Brussels sprouts ensured that they were perfectly caramelized and golden brown. I used a full package of pasta 16oz , which ended up making around large servings total. I made this with rice and OMG.
I have shared the recipe with a few people so far. I made it twice this week. First time with rice, second time I made just the sauce but thickened it up and used it on pizza. I never comment on anything but I had to for this.
I just made this sauce and it was so amazingly delicious! Hands down the best vegan alfredo Ive ever had. I have been vegan for 6 months now and your site is a go to for quick delicious recipes! Thank you for all you do: It was creamy, full of flavor, and perfect for a frigid night. I added extra pepper and red pepper flakes. I love how decadent the sauce tasted after blending in my Vitamix. My husband asked to put this recipe in the winter rotation. And, my daughter wanted to tell you that your recipes are her favorites.
She has been vegan for almost a year and she always asks me to make something from your blog or cookbook. Speaking of cookbook, congratulations on winning best cookbook in the veggie awards from Veg News magazine!
What a well deserved honor. I made this and it was so good! I could not find the same pasta though. I made it with spirals. Wanted to add a photo. I just made this for lunch…its amazing!
I did not have almond milk so used canned coconut milk. I used an immersion blender for blending it eliminates the messy transfer to blender and it turned out so creamy and delicious. We made this tonight, it was amazing!! Added sautéed mushrooms and roasted red peppers. Want to make this but am I able to sub all purpose flour instead of arrowroot etc? Thanks and keep up the great vegan work! Made this last night for myself and my husband.
It turned out nicely: We had the perfect amount of wine leftover to use in the sauce, and it imparted a wonderful depth of flavor. And the sprouts were perfection in this meal. We will definitely have this over and over again during the long winter months. We are vegans, and often crave a comforting, satisfying but versatile dish to add to our repertoire. I can imagine using different kinds of pasta, asparagus, etc to change up the flavor combinations.
Used pappardelle egg noodles…your vegan parm has been my money-saving go-to for almost 3 years…red pepper flakes were an excellent touch…the few glasses of the leftover sav blanc to have with it was the ultimate pairing…omnivore hubs had seconds…looking forward to leftovers for lunch tomorrow.
Red pepper flakes is I great idea. It looks so good. Ever since this arrived in my email not too long ago, I have been dreaming of making this dish. I added approx 9 instead of 12 tbsp of rice flour, and I found this made my sauce quite thick. I had to after ad approximately another cup of almond milk and spices to thin it out. Could have added even more but I got lazy. I very rarely comment but must tell you how delicious this recipe turned out!! I used a good quality Pinot Grigio and we had the rest with dinner!!
A non vegan friend who was visiting loved it and preferred it to the original finding that too rich tasting and caloric. She insisted on a copy the recipe and I sent her off with a baggie of nutritional yeast and your blog url! Would be great with mushrooms too. Thanks for a great recipe!! I am sooo fortunate to have seen this recipe!
I only like them roasted so to me this was great! As others have suggested, I can easily see this sauce with mushrooms, asparagus, or broccoli and even as a white pizza sauce perhaps then with additional roasted garlic. Thank you for your great recipes and culinary inspiration! Made this tonight and loved it! My husband does not like nutritional yeast.
That makes vegan cooking a challenge. I usually just omit it then add it to only my dish after it is cooked. So for this recipe I just omitted the nutritional yeast and vegan parm. For those saying the sauce is bland, like others have said, just added more salt and pepper. I topped my portion only with vegan parm. Also my father in law got 3 containers of vegan sour cream on sale, so I used less milk and added sour cream.
The flavor was amazing! Any suggestions on a vegetable to replace the Brussels sprouts with? Love your blog btw, we use your blog to make dinner at least times a week: D My husband is obsessed with your stir fries lol. Made this for dinner tonight after a full day of work. SUPER simple, quick, hearty, and delicious! I finished off my meal tonight with one of my final pumpkin spice mini vegan cheesecakes your recipe topped with warmed blueberries.
Yesterday I made two loaves of your whole wheat bread posted a vid on instagram lol , and a pot of the Peanut Butter Pad Thai from Everyday Cooking.
Thank you so much for the recipes girl, you are a wonder! I made this tonight! Instead of vegan cheese, I used parmesan but still used almond milk. I also used some kale in place of some of the brussels because I only had a handful or so left. It would be great with roasted tomatoes and basil, lemon and tempeh… the possibilities are endless!
I love the way you combinate it with the brussels sprouts. Your vegan garlic mac n cheese is a favorite in our household but this one might surpass it. I love that hint of white wine and the addition of Brussels sprouts just knocks this right out of the park. I left out the vegan parm and it was still delicious. I made this yesterday a couple hours before going to a Christmas potluck and it was a hit. The only thing I would recommend is making extra sauce to add when dish is re-heated, since it did get a little dry after cooling.
I added extra parmesan cheese and crushed red pepper, delicious!!! Fantastic consistency and texture. Works really well with some rotelli pasta and a nice bit of lemon zest to finish it off.
This is all I want to eat anymore. Follow your recipes to a T and they never fail me. Perhaps veggie broth instead? Hmm, did you use vanilla or sweetened almond milk? Try rice milk next time!
Veggie broth will make it too salty…. I am newly vegan and your site has helped me so much…especially around the holidays! I wanted to know if you think it would be okay to use frozen brussel sprouts in this recipe. Or can we roast them frozen? I want to make this for Christmas Eve dinner in a few days but I have an eater at the table who is allergic to almonds.
Does anybody think regular milk or cashew milk would be an okay substitute or would it not work in the recipe for any reason? My Daughter and I just made this for our Christmas dinner tonight. It was not only easy to make , but delicious! My husband loved it and so did we! I was so glad we had some left over so we can have it for lunch tomorrow! Thanks for putting up and maintaining such a great website.
We did sautéed shrimp with broccoli instead of Brussel sprouts and my 6 year old daughter had two helpings! You definitely nailed the alfredo sauce. So, so, so good! Have the other half of the packet of sprouts left, will be making it again! This is a mixed of all of my likes, thank you for making it. I will try to serve it tonight with my friends. I made this pasta for a crowd a few days ago and it was a total hit! I subbed roasted broccoli for the Brussels sprouts and stirred in a bit of lactose-free mozzarella at the end to up the cheesiness.
Comfort food at its finest! This was my first time cooking with arrowroot powder. I normally use it as dry shampoo!
It added a really strange texture to the sauce. Before blending, it was very clumpy as was mentioned in the recipe, but after blending, the sauce became gelatinous and slimy. I discovered nutritional yeast in the meantime — yummy!! We just found out my husband has a allergy to yeast of all things and so my question is is there a way to make this without it? This sauce is delicious. My non vegan husband actually requested that I make it again the very next day. Your website is a gold mine.
Easy and super satisfying. Tastes like rich, creamy, comfort food. I will definitely make this again. Too good for words. Your parmesan cheese is also the BOMB.
Just wolfed this down for dinner — so delicious and super simple to make! I subbed roasted broccoli and cauliflower and it was amazing. Perfect for a cold January night in New England! Thanks for being awesome, Dana! This alfredo has taken a spot in our regular rotation from here on. This was really good! My significant other omnivore ate it and no complaints!
I am not sure if I made the wrong amount of pasta or just because I used a different kind, but I could have used a little more sauce especially for leftovers but others than that it was amazing and will make again!
Wow, this recipe is divine! My non-vegan mother went back for seconds. I dissolved the cornstarch into the milk and stirred constantly to prevent lumps [easier to prevent lumps than to take them out].
Adding this to my favorites. Looking forward to making it!
