This dish is easy, satisfying, and not overly rich. Almonds lend a clean creaminess that is lighter than using cashews. It’s perfect for an Alfredo. You don’t have to put it in a spaghetti squash bowl, but it’s autumn and I love cooking with seasonal foods and making my dishes beautiful. The shiitake mushrooms lend a meaty bit here and there.
Lentils. Rice. Lemon. Thyme. Pumpkin. I don’t think Halloween when I see them, I think pies, cakes, soups, stir fry’s, breads, casseroles, lasagna’s, pasta’s, muffins, etc. They are in my top 5. You can turn them into anything, with a versatile texture and taste that can go sweet or savory.
