Welcome to Veg'n in the 'Burbs!

It seems you have stumbled onto the companion blog to Homesteadin' in the 'burbs. Congratulations! Here you will find a treasure trove of vegetarian and vegan recipes that my family loves! I may even throw in some frugal shopping tips if you are good *wink* So pull up a seat, have a cup of coffee and enjoy!

I also want to mention that we do not strictly eat vegetarian/vegan. We work these in as often as possible but we do eat meat...we are in the process of pinning down local organic meats and buy from halal markets or eat wild game. All recipes are intended to be vegetarian but are meat optional.

For the love of alfredo!!!!!

In my quest to eat more vegan meals, I knew I had to find an alfredo sauce recipe that tasted at least close to alfredo.  And I think I found it...

1 cup raw unsalted cashews
1 cup water
nutritional yeast to thicken (i dont measure but i think about 1/2 a cup)
garlic, pepper and salt to taste

Place cashews and water in the food processor and pulse till smooth and creamy.  Pour into a small saucepan, heat over medium heat adding yeast till desired thickness is reached.  Add spices and simmer till heated thoroughly.  Serve over your favorite pasta.
