Ingredients

Tarragon Oil

  • 1.8 ozs tarragon
  • 5 spring onion tops (or use chives / parsley)
  • 1/3 cup olive oil

Quick Macadamia Parmesan

  • 1/4 cup macadamias (dry and unsoaked)
  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Zucchini Fettuccine

  • 4 zucchini (courgette)
  • 1 red bell pepper (sliced thinly)
  • 1/2 shallot

Alfredo Sauce

  • 1/2 cup cashews soaked for 20 minutes
  • 2 tbsp olive oil use tarragon oil from earlier
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 spring onions tops
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Instructions

Tarragon Oil

  • Blend all the ingredients together in a high-speed blender.
  • Strain through a nut milk bag, but only press hard enough to get the oil running through, not so hard that the water comes out. This oil should keep for 2 weeks at room temperature, so just making a little like this every now and then will be a nice treat.

Quick Macadamia Parmesan

  • Use a microplane, which is a really fine grater, to grate the macadamias into a bowl.
  • Crumble in the nutritional yeast, so it's powder and add the salt. Lightly mix these together, to maintain the fluffiness.

Zucchini Fettuccine

  • Slice the courgette lengthways on a mandoline with the large julienne attachment, or make into ribbons with a peeler. Then cut the red bell pepper and onion nice and thin. Place all of these in a bowl and put to one side.

Alfredo Sauce

  • Blend the cashews, water, olive oil, spring onions, lemon juice and salt in a high-speed blender until smooth.
  • Add small amounts of the sauce to the zucchini until you're happy with the amount. You don't want to swap the zucchini. Mix it through with your hands. Keep any remaining sauce in the fridge for up to 3 days to use as a salad dressing or crudite╠ü dip for snacks.
