Creamy Buckwheat Veggie Pasta

Lunch + Dinner, Recipes

OrlandoCookbook34

I came up with the idea for this pasta sauce during my detox last month. I love pasta and also love creamy sauces. During the detox, I was off dairy and gluten so I had to come up with an alternative. Buckwheat pasta is delicious and I have this as an alternative to white pasta a lot anyway. The sauce was made by blending cashews, water and some zucchini which gave it a really creamy consistency, plus you are sneaking an extra vegetable in making the whole recipe even more nutrient dense. Win win!
