creamy dairy and gluten free pasta


  • Gluten Free Pasta (your choice) for this recipe I used Organic Red Lentil Penne from Trader Joes
  • ½ cup of dairy free Kite Hill plain cream cheese style spread (made from almond milk)
  • ½ cup of almond milk (I like Califa Farms Almond Milk)
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • Organic fresh broccoli
  • Avocado
  • Nutritional Yeast
  • Everything Bagel Seasoning from Trader Joes (sesame seeds, salt, garlic, poppy seeds, and onion)
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Red Pepper flakes
  • Liquid Coconut Aminos


  • Boil water in large pot- add salt to the water to help flavor the pasta
  • While your water is coming to a boil, make your sauce.
  • For your sauce:
    • ½ cup Kite Hill dairy free cream cheese
    • ½ cup almond milk
    • 2 garlic cloves
    • Salt and pepper to taste
    • Mix all together in your food processor or vitamix
  • Broccoli: chop fresh broccoli and cook in salted boiling hot water for three minutes, then remove from heat and strain into a bowl, toss with red pepper flakes, black pepper and a teaspoon of coconut aminos, place on a sheet tray and roast in oven for 15 minutes on 400 degrees
  • Mix sauce with pasta and top with nutritional yeast for cheesier flavor
  • Now you- plate- creamy pasta, top with roasted spicy broccoli- 1/2 fresh ripe avocado – sprinkle with Trader Joe’s everything seasoning.
