It’s pretty hard not to love spaghetti especially if you are a fan of Italian Cuisine. We are usually served spaghetti in tomato sauce, meat sauce or Alfredo sauce but I wanted to shake up my spaghetti routine a bit and create something unique. Immediately, the idea of Italian Mexican Fusion, struck me and I was excited to create this new recipe ALMOND SAUCE SPAGHETTI with CORN SALSA.
I decided to go with quick and easy Corn Salsa because the warm sunny weather outside was shouting for something cool, refreshing and light food and of course it had to be healthy. (This corn salsa is my very own version).
I know I am always on a lookout for quick and easy recipes but don’t we all want to spend minimum time in the kitchen near the flame and yet get some interesting and healthy food? I vote for it. 🙂
Since summer is just around the corner my craving for corn on the Cobb was getting at a height. I tossed some sweet corns, red onions, green peppers, tomatoes, and my favorite spice jalapeno peppers, along with some cilantro and citrus.
I think I want to dip a tortilla chip into it right now! 🙂
I decided to go for some creamy, smooth and nutty sauce for my spaghetti and decided on cooking Almond Sauce. It seriously took me only 5 minutes for this sauce. In fact this sauce was ready even before my spaghetti was boiled. Doesn’t that sound easy?
So for healthy Almond Sauce which I wanted to make oil free and vegan I heated a nonstick pan and combined unsweetened almond milk and almond flour. (Make sure there is no lump). Added garlic, salt and pepper and gave it couple of boils and Almond Sauce was ready. Amazing, so quick, so easy and so healthy. No oil, no white carb and most importantly no butter. A low calorie protein rich sauce.
I opted for 100% whole wheat spaghetti for healthy option you can choose any spaghetti of your choice. Just pour the hot Almond sauce over the boiled spaghetti and top it with cool corn salsa and Italian Mexican Fusion dinner in ready. 🙂
Almond Sauce Spaghetti with Corn Salsa tasted warm and cool with salty, nutty and mild tangy flavor. A true healthy fusion meal with so much flavor.
