Spiralized Butternut Squash with Creamy Cashew Alfredo

Welllll, that’s a wrap, folks! Today is our last post from my blogger guest post series. I’ve had so much fun introducing you to these ladies and hopefully you’ve bookmarked some of the blogs – they’re such talented ladies with such delicious recipe ideas!

We’re ending on a high note with the gorgeous Sarah from Broma Bakery. Best known for her baked goods (like, the best you’ve ever seen) and amazing photography, Sarah’s dishing up something spiralized today!

Sarah and I clicked at a blog retreat a couple of years ago and ever since, I’ve been a huge fan girl! Sarah was visiting NYC earlier this year and we grabbed dinner while she was in town and I got to meet her sweet and super tall boyfriend!

She’s hilarious, talented, gorge, and I couldn’t be more excited to end this blogger series with Sarah’s recipe.

I’d love to know what you thought of this blogger guest post series and if you’d like me to bring on more guest posters in the future!

And as for content moving forward, well, I got nothin’! I’m going to try my best to work on some recipes for the blog, but I have to say, I’m really enjoying this time alone with Luca 🙂 You can follow me along at inspiralizedali for baby and mother content, if you’re interested.

From Sarah:

Hi, everyone! My name is Sarah and I blog at Broma Bakery. Ali and I met a few years ago at a blogger retreat in Utah, and I instantly fell in love with her contagious smile, total charm, and business-savvy way of thinking (wait ok is this a proposal speech because this sounds like a proposal speech).

Aaaanywho. Today I’m sharing with you all a recipe for the most creamy, delicious, vegan Spiralized Butternut Squash with Creamy Cashew Alfredo. Besides soaking the cashews overnight, this recipe is a cinch to put together. Plus, the alfredo sauce will keep in the fridge for up to a week (yaas meal prep yaas). Last, if you’re eating for fewer people, this recipe can be easily halved 🙂

Hope you enjoy, and feel free to come say hi on my blog or follow along on Insta at @bromabakery. Happy cooking!

Meaghan says:
That's great to hear! Thanks for the feedback!
Ed Adams says:
Just curious. What kind of sprouts did you use for garnish in the above pictures? Alfalfa? Some kind of bean?
Meaghan says:
That is garden cress!
Allison says:
Glad to see you coming back to post yourself soon, Ali, but these guest posts have ALL been a delight. :-)
Meaghan says:
Thank you so much, Allison! We're so happy you enjoyed them.
Jenn says:
This looks so good!! What kind of texture should I be looking for with butternut squash? Will it still be crunchy? Or al dente? Thank you!
Meaghan says:
Hi Jenn! It will be al dente, not crunchy! You want to cook those noodles through!
Marcie says:
It would be great if you could include the nutrient information please.
Meaghan says:
Hi Marcie, because this is a guest post, we will not be providing nutritional information for these recipes.
Carol says:
Could please tell me aneasy way to spiralize butternit squash. I skinned it , it didn't do a good job, the teeth did t hold it when i cranked. Should I make it smaller maybe? Carol
Meaghan says:
Hi Carol! You'll love this post! It's super helpful for tackling larger veggies: https://inspiralized.com/7-tips-for-spiralizing-large-vegetables/
Is there nutrition information for this recipe? calories, carbs, etc? Thanks
Chris says:
Looks great, but I can’t do almond milk... any suggestions for a good substitute? Thanks!
Ed Adams says:
Soy milk or dairy. I assume an allergy to tree nuts? I don't know if that includes coconut or not, but, if not, coconut milk might be an acceptable substitute.
Meaghan says:
Any other nut milk or whole milk will work!
Lauren says:
I just made this, and it is INSANE. Highly recommended!! I love Sarah at Broma Bakery and I'm SO stoked she sent a guest post for you all. Welcome back, Ali!!!!
Meaghan says:
Yay! We're so happy to hear this! It's an awesome recipe!
Kathy says:
Has anyone tried his with sweet potatoes instead of the butternut squash?
NUM. Eating now with sauteed broccoli and fresh basil. I can't believe how easy this was and how quickly it came together! Many thanks.
Meaghan says:
You're so welcome! Thanks for giving it a try!
Nicole Thrower says:
Hi, Is there another nut you recommend besides cashews? I'm still new to the game but I just found out that I'm allergic to cashews :(

TWIN MAMAS - anything I'm missing?! 👇🏼👇🏼 #twinpregnancy #hospitalbag #31weekspregnantwithtwins #monoditwins #twinpregnancy #pregnantwithtwins #31weekspregnant #expectingtwins #identicaltwins #identicaltwinpregnancy ⁣


we're a month into summer and the zucchinis are LARGE. 👏🏼 they grow like weeds this time of year and there's only so much zucchini bread, soup, and fritters you can make - time to spiralize them! if you're new to spiralizing and not sure the best way to approach cooking spiralized zucchini, here are my top 3 ways to cook zoodles 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼⁣

1️⃣ SAUTÉ -  this is my favorite way to enjoy zoodles. toss them over medium-high heat until al dente (with or without cooking oil.) the moment you notice them getting soggy, remove them from heat, drain into a colander, and pat dry. I recommend pouring a sauce on top instead of tossing with a sauce, to avoid extra wateriness. I LOVE a bolognese over zoodles.⁣

2️⃣ SIMMER - zucchini noodles don't get soggy in soups, they cook evenly and they are an easy way to add veggies into soups. just add them to the end of the cooking process (3 minutes is all you need to simmer until al dente.) think chicken "zoodle" soups and "zoodle" ramens! ⁣

3️⃣ RAW - you can eat zucchini raw! in the summertime, there's nothing better than a cold zoodle salad, and I love simple pesto zucchini noodles or you can try an Asian-inspired Thai dressing like a peanut sauce.⁣

what are YOUR favorite ways to enjoy zoodles?! #zoodles #zucchininoodles #spiralizedzucchini #zucchinirecipes #spiralizerrecipes #spiralizerrecipe #spiralizer

do these veggies make my belly look big? 😛🤰🏻 🧅🥒🍅 be honest! #29weekspregnantwithtwins #monoditwins #twinpregnancy #pregnantwithtwins #29weekspregnant ...

I'll admit, it's been a minute since I posted a spiralized zucchini meal on here, so I'm throwing it back (and bringing it back!) with this MEDITERRANEAN CHICKEN with SPIRALIZED VEGETABLES 🍅, originally made for the blog by my friend @skinnytaste! 🙏🏼⁣

I love the simplicity of this zoodle dish, it's one of those "what the heck am I going to make for dinner tonight?!" 🤔 kind of meals. you can bulk this up with some grains or some grilled potatoes, too!⁣

search the blog for the recipe! 🖥️⁣
