Tuna Alfredo

Tuna Alfredo is a nice gluten free and dairy free alternative to the real thing.  To make it the real thing simply use all purpose flour to replace arrowroot powder, regular pasta, and milk instead of almond milk.  I like to serve this on a cool spring or autumn day, when people are craving pasta.

Tuna Alfredo Recipe

3 cups uncooked rice macaroni
2 tbsp. olive oil
1 large onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 c. celery, chopped
1 cup sunflower seeds
2 cups almond milk
2 cans of tuna with liquid, mashed
2-3 cups finely chopped broccoli
2 tbsp. arrowroot powder
Salt and pepper (to taste)
Parmesan cheese, grated (optional)

Saute celery, onion and garlic in olive oil in a skillet. Add sunflower seeds. Cook till sunflower seeds are toasted. Mash tuna, and add with liquid and almond milk to the skillet and mix well. Sprinkle in arrowroot powder to thicken sauce.  Add chopped fresh broccoli and cook five minutes. Salt and pepper to taste. Serve over pasta.
