Oh my, I’m so glad the today is over, what a day! It was a mind-frying day for sure, I spent hours grinding away on a handful of frustrating projects. I swear my dog always knows when I come home after a stressful day slightly strung out, she hides and pouts in her bed occasionally peaking. Like me at my alarm this morning waiting until that absolute last minute until I had to jump out of bed.
But, I felt better after catching the last of the sunset and looking forward to getting busy in the kitchen. That’s an annoying thing about winter, that’s it’s dark before 6 PM. Hubby and I have been itching to get out on a hike and grab some nature shots with the new camera, but it’s not possible on a weekday.
Oh well, just have to take more food shots. For dinner, I decided to try Angela’s Quick and Easy Vegan Alfredo. But as usual, I changed it up a bit using freshly made hemp milk and hemp seeds instead of the cashews. I have a large stock pile of hemp seeds in my freezer and I like that they have more protein than nuts and try to eek more in here and there on vegan recipes.
It was fast and easy to assemble the ingredients in the Vita-Mix.
The end result definitely looked like a traditional dairy-based alfredo sauce and tasted pretty dead on from what I remember.
I could have used pasta, but I wasn’t in a pasta mood and had a huge head of broccoli to use up. I chopped it up and “steamed” it in the microwave in a covered ceramic bowl for 4 minutes on high.
Then poured the thick sauce all over it making it more of a broccoli alfredo soup, not a bad thing!
I had it with a simple kale and sauerkraut salad for a fast and easy dinner after a burn out day.
The sauce was a truly creamy and comforting joy, it reminded me of the gooey alfredo I used to eat as a carefree kid. But a better adult version! I highly recommend this as a way to enjoy a little steamed broccoli.
And now I have plenty of evening time left after such a quick dinner for a workout, then taking some new reading material to a bubble bath. Love Runner’s World, but why do all the runners on the cover have to always look so serious?
