6 servings

Total time

35 minutes






  • 1 cup raw cashews (soaked in water overnight and drained)
  • ⅓ cup water
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • ½ teaspoon truffle salt
  • ½ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • 2 teaspoons avocado oil
  • 8 oz crimini mushrooms (sliced)
  • ½ teaspoon thyme
  • 12 oz gluten free pasta
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes (halved)


  1. Add all the truffle alfredo ingredients into a blender. Blend on high until smooth. Set aside.
  2. Fill a large pot with water and heat over high. Once it simmers, add in the pasta and stir immediately to prevent sticking. Reduce to a simmer and cook until al dente, about 5-7 minutes. Drain.
  3. While the pasta is cooking, heat the avocado oil in a skillet over high heat. Add in the mushroom and sauté until cooked through, about 7 minutes. Add in the thyme and heat for another 30 seconds. Reduce the heat to medium. Add in the sauce, drained pasta, and tomatoes. Toss to combine and serve.
