Creamy Zucchini Alfredo

IMG_0038

The other day I was craving something creamy and nourishing for lunch. I had a package of wakame seaweed, a bunch of zucchini, and lots of cashews… so this yummy dish was born. When wakame is soaked, its actually got the texture of soft cooked noodles so sometimes I like to combine it with zucchini noodles for raw pasta. I garnished it with diced red pepper, and a sprinkle of hemp seeds and nutritional yeast to be like parmesan, and smoked paprika for a flavour kick.
