Ingredients

  • 1 thinly sliced Sweet potato
  • Sliced Mini peppers
  • Sliced Tomatoes
  • Sliced Radish optional

Spinach Alfredo:

  • 2.5-3 Tablespoons raw cashew flour ground cashew
  • 1/2 cup baby spinach raw or blanched, or other blanched greens or omit
  • 1/3 cup coconut milk
  • 1 garlic clove or 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 Tablespoon nutritional yeast

  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • black pepper cayenne to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon liquid aminos
  • pinch of nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice/vinegar

Instructions

Alfredo:

  • Blend all the ingredients of the Alfredo. Taste and adjust salt.
  • The sauce thickens during baking so I did not cook it. You can nuke it in the microwave to thicken it a bit.
  • Grease the ramekin if you plan to remove the bake.
  • Add a little alfredo in the ramekin. top with sliced Sweet Potatoes, overlapping so it is a continuous layer.
  • Top with mini peppers, tomato slices, radish, and drizzle enough alfredo to cover.
  • If using a larger ramekin, add other veggies/mushrooms and sauce layer.
  • Top with Sweet potatoes, tomato slices, more alfredo.
  • For the final layer, you can use breadcrumbs mixed with dried herbs(I used italian blend) and salt.
  • Or sweet potato slices brushed with olive oil for a crunchy sweet potato top. Sprinkle some herbs and salt on top.
  • Bake for 45-50 mins at 370 F.
  • Serve as is warm in the ramekin. Let sit for 5-10 minutes before removing from ramekin.

Notes

Variations:
  • Add a Tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil or vegan butter to the alfredo for creamier sauce.
  • Skip the spinach.
  • Use other herbs and spices for sauce variations like chipotle flakes, ranch seasoning etc.
  • Add other sliced veggies like Zucchini, cauliflower, eggplant, Mushrooms.
    Add some crumbled steamed Tempeh layers.
  • If making a larger portion, then bake at least an hour.
