My favorite meal in NYC

This vegan loves cream sauce.

Up until yesterday, I don’t think I’d ever tried cashew Alfredo sauce. So when I saw it on the menu at Cafe Blossom, a vegan restaurant in New York City, I instantly wanted to order Spaghetti Squash Alfredo: maitaki mushrooms, sautéed garlic, leeks, and slow roasted cherry tomatoes, mixed with tender spaghetti squash in a rich cashew cream sauce. I also ordered a side of grilled asparagus.

While devouring every last drop of sauce, I drafted the following letter in my head:

Dear Cafe Blossom peeps,

Your cashew Alfredo is the best thing since sliced bread chocolate-chip cookies. Please, can you send me the recipe so I can eat it, drink it, and bathe in it daily? I would be forever grateful.

Sincerely,

Chocolate Cashew-Covered Katie

 

What do you think? Do you think they’ll go for it?

Or be seriously creeped out? 😕

    pb&j fudge for sure. But I know both recipes will be bomb so I am excited for both! cashew covered pasta….!? sounds heavenly 🙂

    Imma have to go with PB & J blondies!

    Oh man, that spaghetti squash alfredo looks decadent. I dunno if you have any tips, but how does one make a decent vegan alfredo sauce without cream or cheese? I’ve got the tofu base-part down, and I have brewer’s yeast. But I don’t find the flavor of nutritional yeast to be REALLY on par with parmesan cheese. Hmm… a conundrum.

    Damn, I wish I could buy spaghetti squash in Japan.

    ((PS, it’s spelled “maitake.” The -take part means mushroom in Japanese, hence shiitake, maitake, etc. Just FYI ^_^))

    Oh my goodness..whatever you post will be WONNNNNDERFUL ;)! BUT.. PB&J blondies would be incredible. Actually, PB&J anything would be welcomed: muffins…cookies…oatmeal…bread…dessert dip^^

    That cashew Alfredo dish sounds amazing, probably because of the mushrooms. Can you believe I’ve never had spaghetti squash before though? I know, crazy!

  5. Yolie @ Practising Wellness says

    Oooh, that looks so good! I am going to New York in September, so I will HAVE to check out Cafe Blossom now…thank you for the stellar recommendation! 🙂 xyx

    I’m so sorry I missed you here in NYC, but I see you had no trouble finding all the best spots for quality eats. 🙂 My own trip was great as well! I think my favorite food in Russia was the mushroom pelmeni (dumplings). You have my permission to create a healthy version. 😉

    Oh and I was at Cafe Blossom recently too! I had the raw sweet potato rolls and an eggplant entree. Heaven! Oh and the chocolate cake. Their simple layer cakes are amazing!

    Katie, I have been following your blog for over a year and I am a HUGE fan! I am writing this from Cafe Blossom. I got the fettuccine Alfredo, thanks to your suggestion, and I was NOT disappointed!! It was delicious!
