Foodie Friday: Dairy Free Broccoli “Alfredo” with Shrimp


 

Dairy Free Broccoli "Alfredo" with ShrimpWelcome back to our weekly Foodie Friday link up! I’m linking up with Montana from Pretty Lil’ Mudder, Emily from Whatever Floats Your Oats, Esther from Chocolate Runner Girl, Farrah from Fairyburger and Cassandra from Powered by BLING to create awesome healthy recipes each week!  Also, make sure you hop around to check out all the amazing recipes in this link up and feel free to add your recipes as well! 

This week we are linking up to bring you comfort food recipes! I honestly struggled with what to make for this week.  When I tried to think of my favorite comfort food I wasn’t really sure I even had one.  Most traditional comfort foods are too heavy and greasy which have never really sat well with me.  I briefly considered making mac’n’cheese but when I started creating the recipe, I realized it was better suited for my Meatless Monday post, so stay tuned for that 😉 

While I am not sharing my mac’n’cheese recipe today, it did inspire me to make dairy free “Alfredo” with shrimp, so I apologize in advance for two pasta recipes in a row.  Growing up my mom would make Chicken Alfredo and it  made a regular appearance on our weekly menu, particularly when it was cold.  Given our twenty degree temps the last week, this revised recipe seemed rather fitting.  My dairy free version is still creamy and comforting but without all the guilt. Dairy Free Broccoli AlfredoDairy Free Broccoli "Alfredo"Dairy Free Broccoli Alfredo
