This dish uses a lighter fettucine noodle that is made from yam and soybeans called Shirataki noodles.  They can usually be found near the packaged tofu in your grocery.  This dish has the mouth-feel of alfredo fettucine but it is vegan friendly as it replaces the dairy with tahini and packs in other Middle Eastern and Morrocan flavors.

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 2 tablespoons honey or agave
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground and toasted cumin
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Four 8 ounce packages of Shirataki fettucine noodles
  • Cooking spray
  • 2 tablespoons harissa or to taste
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 handfuls of flat-leaf parsley, chopped
  • 1/2 lemon, zest and juice

Directions:

  1. Whisk together tahini, honey, cumin, cinnamon, and 1/4 cup of water until smooth. Set aside.
  2. Rinse and drain noodles.  Coat saute pan with some cooking spray.  When hot, add in noodles, harissa, salt, and pepper.  Cook on medium for a few minutes, tossing frequently.
  3. Turn heat to low.  Stir in tahini mixture and combine.  Stir in parsley, lemon juice, and lemon zest off heat.  Enjoy!
