Edamame Fettuccine with Shiitakes, Chard, & Tahini

by Chef Hans

Sit down, Fettuccine Alfredo! You too, Mushroom Stroganoff. Seriously, this one-ingredient edamame fettuccine has an incredible mouthfeel, and not just compared to other gluten-free pastas. It doesn't get mushy or stick together like wheat pasta can. Harnessing the umami flavors of roasted mushrooms, sautéed chard, and creamy tahini, this vegan dish is more savory than cream sauce. If you follow these directions, you're in for a treat. Gluten Free and Vegan, it can also be made peanut free by switching peanut oil for another oil with a high smoke point, like avocado oil. We used peanut oil just to crank the richness up a notch. For soy free, choose a different noodle.

For best results, we recommend a cast iron skillet (you can use two, or repurpose the one for different elements of your preparation), or you can use a roasting pan to go in the oven and any skillet for the stovetop, if that's what you have in your kitchen. You'll be cooking the mushrooms and chard separately before combining them, and preparing your dressing in the blender.
