Gluten/dairy free roasted tomato “Alfredo” sauce is delightfully delicious! This is my version of an Alfredo, more like a mockfredo;)
This is another quick and versatile dish to make your way! I’ve added spinach and peas to this one which was really good. I’ve also left out the tomatoes which made it more of an “Alfredo”. Since I rarely do dairy, I substituted the butter for coconut oil and heavy cream for coconut milk.
It’s amazing how much your palate changes when you change your food choices! After awhile this mockfredo tricks it into believing it’s the real thing.
Disclaimer: These portions are all just a guess. I don’t like to measure when it comes to creating in the kitchen. Please just let this be a guide for your own creation…
Roasted Tomato “Alfredo”
- SAUTE 1/2 large/chopped onion, 1 medium/chopped red bell pepper in 1 tbsp. of coconut oil and some sea salt until just about tender.
- STIR in 1/4 cup of fresh/chopped rosemary, 1 tbsp. dried thyme, 1 tsp. smoked paprika, a pinch of red pepper flakes (or more), and 1 tbsp. garlic powder.
- ADD about a cup of white wine (or broth) and let reduce for a couple minutes.
- STIR in 1 can of fire roasted/no salt added/chopped tomatoes and 1 can coconut milk.
- ADD 1 lb. thinly cut breast of chicken and simmer until no longer pink.
- BOIL 1 pkg. brown rice penne a couple minutes less than package directions in a separate pot.
- ADD 1 bundle of fresh trimmed/chopped asparagus for the last minute of the boiling pasta.
- DRAIN, add it to the sauce, and add S/P. Let it marry for a couple minutes; stirring occasionally.
If you like your roasted tomato “Alfredo” thicker; add a little of the pasta water to the dish at the end or…
- WHISK 2 tbsp. sweet rice flour to 1 tbsp. room temperature water until you get a pasty type consistency (may have to use more or less water or flour).
- WHISK that mixture into sauce after the chicken is fully cooked.
Grateful Day – Blessed with waking up to enjoy another day. Looking forward to being in the moment with my toddler and shutting off the chaos.
Thank you for listening!
