Healthy Coconut Carrot Pasta - Gluten-free and Dairy-free!

WHAT YOU NEED:

3-4 extra large carrots cut sliced into ribbons using a peeler (basically just need enough carrot ribbons to completely fill a large 12" pan)

2 cloves garlic, minced

1/2 cup finely chopped onions

Ghee or other healthy cooking oil

1 can coconut milk

1 tbsp nutritional yeast

1/2 tsp salt

1/8 tsp pepper

1/2 tsp thyme

Juice of half a lemon

1/2 cup almond flour

Optional: green onions + cilantro for topping

HOW TO MAKE IT:

  1. Sauté carrot ribbons in a little bit of ghee or healthy cooking oil on medium-low with the top on (but mixing occasionally) until cooked to the desired consistency, about 5-10 minutes. They cook down.

  2. In a separate pot while the carrots are cooking, sauté garlic and onion on low in a little bit of ghee for 2 mins, then add coconut milk, nutritional yeast, spices, lemon. Mix together.

  3. Then add almond flour to the coconut milk mixture and mix together. I used a whisk to make sure there were no chunks. Bring to a simmer.

  4. When carrots are done cooking, pour coconut milk sauce over carrots, top with green onions and cilantro if desired and serve immediately.
