Mushroom Broccoli Rigatoni with Lemon Garlic Cream Sauce 🥦🍋 ~
16 ounces rigatoni
1 head broccoli, chopped
1 cup mushrooms
Sauce: (or Cauliflower Alfredo)
2 cups unsweetened plain almond milk
Juice from 1 small lemon
10–12 large garlic cloves
3 tbsp brown rice flour
1–1.5 tsp sea salt
1 tbsp olive oil
Black pepper to taste
Optional: 1/2 tsp lemon zest
Bring a large pot of water to boil and cook pasta according to package instructions. In a separate pot, use a steamer basket to steam the chopped broccoli for about 5 minutes. Gently wash mushrooms to remove any dirt. Slice each mushroom into about 4 pieces. Add to a pan and sauté with a splash of water until slightly wilted and cooked down. Prepare the sauce by mincing the garlic. Add the garlic to a large pot with the olive oil and cook until translucent. Stir in the flour and whisk to get rid of any clumps. Slowly stir in the almond milk and continue to whisk. Add the lemon juice and lemon zest if using. Reduce heat to low and let simmer until the sauce has thickened. Add the salt and pepper. Add the mushrooms, broccoli, and sauce to the cooked pasta. Top with additional salt, pepper, or red pepper flakes if desired and enjoy.
