Turnip Pasta with Brussel Sprout Alfredo {Vegan, Gluten-Free}

Turnip Pasta with Vegan Alfredo Sauce

I love to use my spiralizer to create some beautiful and low-calorie vegetable pasta dishes such as this zucchini pasta, butternut squash pasta, zucchini ribbon salad. Since turnip is one of  my favourite vegetable, I decided to try turning it into pasta. Turnip is a pretty hard vegetable, but it passed the spiralizer test without any trouble! I was so happy to get those bright yellow noodles!

This delicious pasta is topped with a simple vegan Alfredo sauce and crispy brussel sprouts.

Turnip pasta topped with brussel sprout Alfredo sauce is the perfect gluten-free and vegan meal.
Serves: 4
  • 1 medium turnip, peeled
  • 1 tablespoon grapeseed oil
Brussel Sprout Alfredo
  • 15-20 brussel sprouts
  • 1 tablespoon grapeseed oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 2 cups vegan alfredo sauce
  1. Preheat oven at 400 degrees F.
  2. Spiralize the turnip using the small noodle blade of a spiralizer. Turnip is a hard vegetable so make sure it is well secured on your spiralizer to facilitate the process.
  3. Toss grapeseed oil over turnip noodles and mix until noodles are evenly coated.
  4. Bake the noodles on a parchment paper line baking sheet for 20-22 minutes, or until the turnip is al dente.
Brussel Sprout Alfredo
  1. Wash brussel sprouts and remove the stems and outside leaves.
  2. Cut the sprouts into quarters.
  3. Place grapeseed oil in a frying pan over medium heat and cook the brussel sprouts for about 5 minutes.
  4. Add garlic and vinegar. Cook for another 5 minutes.
  5. Incorporate the vegan alfredp sauce and cook on low heat for 5-10 more minutes. If you see that the sauce is too thick, you can add water to make it creamier. To do this recipe, I added ½ cup water, but the amount will depend on the original thickness of your alfredo sauce.
  6. Serve the sauce over a bed of roasted turnip pasta.

    Made this. Very tasty. Had it on combo of spaghetti squash and spiralized rutabaga. Very satisfying. Love how vinegar is in there- great flavour for brussel sprouts.
