Slim Me Noodles with 'Cream' Sauce & Veg

To answer Molly's question about the sauce on my potato in my last post:
This sauce has no added fat or sugar, is high protein and when eaten with veggies high fibre. An all round winner... unless you're avoiding soy. I've made this sauce for numerous omnivores and it's always gone down well- even in people that think the don't like tofu :) I originally made this sauce for pasta but it works well as a salad dressing or sauce for veg. It tastes great warm or cold and compliments pretty much everything!

Slim Me Noodles with 'Cream' Sauce and Veg
1/3 of 'Cream' sauce:
Silken Tofu 300g
1 cup nutritional yeast
1 tbsp braggs seasoning or mixed herbs
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
10 drops stevia
black pepper- to taste but I suggest a generous serve
optional additions
1 tsp dijon mustard
1 tsp tahini
  • blend all ingredients until smooth
  • heat to thicken as desired
  • will keep well in an airtight container in the fridge for a week- just stir before use
1c frozen peas
10 cherry tomatoes
1 packet slim me noodles
  • cook peas
  • heat pasta for 2 mins
  • drain
  • add tomatoes and sauce
  • enjoy!
I really like using silken tofu in sauces, it makes it thick and rich without adding too many calories or fat and you get extra protein without making it a main focus of the dish. 

Hope you're all having fun this weekend before Christmas- enjoy some silence, you'll miss it next weekend!

All the best xxxx

  1. The sauce sounds great. When I saw the peas, I quickly looked to see the source, and I was glad to see that they were frozen. I just can't seem to choke down canned ones. But, this will work, yay! Looks good and yummy.

  2. Thank you SO much for posting this! It's definitely something I'd love and although I do have to limit my soy intake (thyroid issues), I do still have it. I'll definitely be making this. :)
