Ingredients

  • 8 oz whole-wheat fettuccine
  • 3 cups 
cauliflower florets, steamed
  • 1/4 cup 
hemp hearts, divided 
(TRY: Nutiva Organic 
Shelled Hempseed)
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp yellow miso paste
  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 2 
large zucchini, spiralized or shaved into noodles
  • 3 cups baby spinach
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil leaves
  • Pinch 
ground black pepper

Preparation

  1. Cook pasta according to package directions.
  2. Meanwhile, in a food processor, combine cauliflower, 3 tbsp hemp seeds, oil, miso, yeast, vinegar, salt and 1/3 cup water. Blend until smooth. Mixture should turn into a thick sauce – if too thick, add more water, 1 tbsp at a time, until a sauce consistency is reached.
  3. To a large sauté pan on medium, add cauliflower sauce and zucchini noodles. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes, stirring constantly, or until zucchini is tender and sauce has thickened. Fold in spinach and cook until wilted, about 1 minute. Fold in cooked pasta, toss until just incorporated, then remove from heat.
  4. Divide among plates and top with basil, remaining 1 tbsp hemp seeds and pepper.
