Recipe: Alkaline Keto Alfredo

Alkaline Keto Alfredo Recipe

The Most Delicious, Alkaline-Keto Dinner!

It’s quick, delicious, easy, fat-and-protein-rich, alkaline and can be made for days ahead!

As I’ve talked about before, my alkaline approach and the keto approach are super-complimentary. They both put a huge emphasis on fresh, whole, natural foods, a LOT of leafy greens and other veg, lots and lots of healthy fats (omega 3 and saturated fats, predominantly from coconut oil specifically), proper hydration, regular exercise – and a removal of processed food, sugar, gluten and other grains from the diet.

The only real difference is the volume of meat, which people often wrongly overstate when they consider the keto approach. Being keto (i.e. getting into nutritional ketosis), isn’t about eating as much meat as possible – in fact, not that many calories are supposed to come from protein – it’s all about the fat, loads of veg and then some meat. That’s the only difference.

And yes, you can still eat meat and be alkaline if you choose.

And this recipe today gives you both alkalinity AND lots of fats (to encourage nutritional ketosis), it’s full of delicious nutrients, it’s alkaline, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant-rich — just how I like it!

Keto-Alkaline Alfredo

Serves 2

Ingredients

Ingredients
1 medium cauliflower
1tbsp avocado oil
1tbsp coconut oil (or just use 2tbsp coconut oil)
1/4 cup cashews
3 cloves garlic
2 teaspoons pine nuts
1 cup of peas
2 large handfuls of spinach
2.5 cups almond milk
1 yeast-free, MSG-free vegetable stock cube
A handful of oregano & basil
Himalayan salt & black pepper to taste
Juice of 1/2 lemon
Optional chili flakes

For the noodles:

Either 4 zucchini or 2 carrots/2 zucchini – spiralized

Instructions

1) Start by getting the cashews soaking in warm water, this will make them easier to blend.

2) Next, roughly chop the cauliflower, mince the garlic and add to a pan with the oil and pine nuts. Cook for 2-3 minutes, and then add the almond milk and the stock cube. Bring the pot to a simmer.

3) Now drain the cashews, give them a rinse and add to the pan too. Simmer everything together for 6-8 mins.

4) Put everything in a high-speed blender and add the lemon juice, herbs, salt & pepper and once it’s smooth this is your sauce ready.

5) Now add this to a saucepan with the peas and spinach until they are cooked through and then add the zoodles for a couple more minutes, and then serve!


This will keep in an airtight container in the fridge for a good few days, so certainly do make more than you need. You can whip up the zoodles fresh as you need them, and it makes a GREAT next-day-at-work recipe because it’s just as delicious cold!

Enjoy,
Ross

    Hey. How can I get just the Keto alkaline cookbook?

    Great recipe Ross!
    I made this for a group of 6 people, 3 being men. It was a smash hit, especially with my sister-in-law who is losing weight on a keto plan she has going. I introduced the idea of alkalinity and keto because I knew about the value of the fresh green veggies that would provide support to her 5 major systems as she is off of sugar, carbohydrates such as bread, crackers, etc… and the other foods she has had trouble with. Plus she has dieted so much in her life just to gain the weight back and more.

    Thank you Ross for all that you do. I have been able to share so much with so many people about alkalinity supporting overall health that has made sense to them as it did me for my health and well-being!

      SO great to hear it was a hit! We love it in our house which is 4 boys (albeit me and three kids) and 1 woman (I feel sorry for her, it’s only going to get worse as all the boys get older hahaha).

    Hi Ross,

      The Pete Evans one works great 🙂

    Hi Ross!
    What is your take on collagen for restoring elasticity to skin? Also is wheat grass digestible?
    Thanks!

    Healthy food recipes always gladden my heart. I am glad to see one more recipe. Thank you so much.

    Great to see some recipes with keto in mind. Would love to see some for those of us on strict keto – under 20g a day. A cup of peas is 21g and cashew are high carb so most of the daily allowance would be used on this one meal. Looking forward to some recipes around 5g.
