1/2 cup brazil nut or almond milk

2T chopped scallion or chives

1/2t chopped garlic

1/2t salt

dash of cayenne

1/4t nutmeg

1/4t white pepper

Blend all ingredients in a blender until creamy. Taste and adjust seasonings. Toss with the veggie noodles and top with Brazil nut parmesan and Raw Vegan Zucchini Alfredo is ready (subscribe to Helene’s Kitchen to get this recipe by the end of May).
