  • 1 1/2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp dried/fresh minced garlic
  • Salt as per taste

For Fettuccine Alfredo

  • 1/4 cup raw cashew nuts (soaked in 1/4 cup warm water)
  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 tbsp vegan butter (avocado oil based)
  • 1 tbsp whole wheat flour

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven at 425-degree Fahrenheit and
    prepare a baking sheet.

  2. In a mixing bowl combine all the ingredients for
    Brussel sprouts and let it sit for 2 minutes.

  3. Now, spoon the Brussel sprouts on the baking
    sheet and place it in the middle rack of the oven. (make sure to scoop all the
    seasoning as well). Let it bake for 20-25 minutes until brownish from the
    outside and soft from the inside.

  4. In the meanwhile, combine water, cashew nuts and
    nutritional yeast in a blender and blend it into a smooth paste. Keep it aside.

  5. In a nonstick frying pan melt vegan butter and
    saute the flour until you start getting its aroma.

  6. Then pour coconut milk and keep stirring for few
    minutes on a medium flame until there are almost no lumps.

  7. Then pour the blended cashew and whisk it nicely
    until smooth. Cook on a medium flame for 2 minutes.

  8. Then toss in fettuccine pasta, salt and pepper.

  9. Lastly, stir in roasted Brussel Sprouts and cook
    only for 1 minute (do not over cook since we do not want the sauce to be
    absorbed completely).

  10. Serve immediately with crushed chili flakes.
