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!

  • I have looooved seeing the guest blogs! Mostly because it's awesome to see links to other blogs to follow with such great content!
    • That's great to hear! Thanks for the feedback!
  • Just curious. What kind of sprouts did you use for garnish in the above pictures? Alfalfa? Some kind of bean?
  • Glad to see you coming back to post yourself soon, Ali, but these guest posts have ALL been a delight. :-)
    • Thank you so much, Allison! We're so happy you enjoyed them.
  • 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!
    • Hi Jenn! It will be al dente, not crunchy! You want to cook those noodles through!
  • It would be great if you could include the nutrient information please.
    • Hi Marcie, because this is a guest post, we will not be providing nutritional information for these recipes.
  • 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
    • 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
  • Looks great, but I can’t do almond milk... any suggestions for a good substitute? Thanks!
    • 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.
    • Any other nut milk or whole milk will work!
  • 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!!!!
    • Yay! We're so happy to hear this! It's an awesome recipe!
  • 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.
    • You're so welcome! Thanks for giving it a try!
  • 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 :(
