If you don't have or want carrot noodles, you can sub for any other noodle or vegetable noodles- zucchini, sweet potato, or spaghetti squash.

Ingredients Sauce Instructions
  1. Puree all ingredients for the sauce together in food processor or high powered blender for 3-5 minutes until completely smooth.
  2. Place carrot noodles on a baking tray and cook in a convection toaster (or oven) on 450F for about 10-15 minutes until soft. Then set aside. *You can also cook noodles in a skillet on the stovetop, but I have found convection baking carrot noodles turns out perfect results every time and eliminates excess water. I get carrot noodles from Trader Joe's. You can also use sweet potato noodles or any other vegetable noodle.
  3. Once noodles are cooked, serve with alfredo sauce, top with fresh chopped basil (optional), and serve! Leftovers can be stored in the freezer and reheated later- if you are meal prepping, blend sauce and freeze separate, do not cook noodles until you are prepared to eat them.

  2. In a frying pan, lightly saute the vegetables in 1-2 tablespoons sesame oil or water. Cook for about 5 minutes until soft (but not mushy). Then set aside.
  3. In a mason jar or hand blender puree ingredients for the sauce. Thicken sauce over medium heat in a sauce pan or skillet, stirring consistently with a whisk, until the sauce thickens and is smooth. Do not over cook the sauce otherwise it will become too thick! If this happens, just add more water.
  4. In a serving bowl, add the noodles, vegetables, cooked chicken, and pour the sauce over top. Serve with sesame seeds and chopped green onion.
