Roasted poblano and corn is one of my favorite flavor combinations. I find that roasting the poblanos brings out a smoky flavor that is complemented by the sweetness of the corn. The inspiration for this dish is those amazing flavors, and a dish called rajas con crema.
Instead of using crema for this recipe I have used the Primal Kitchen Garlic Alfredo sauce, which helps get this recipe done in less than 30 minutes! This is super important for me, because sometimes between work and homeschooling I don’t have much time to put dinner on the table. Plus the kids love pasta!

I’m always on the lookout for new vegan-friendly products and brands, especially if they help me get dinner on the table quicker. I’ve recently found some that have become a part of my weekly grocery shopping. My absolute favorite is the Primal Kitchen Organic Unsweetened Ketchup which is sweetened with balsamic vinegar, but I also love the Garlic Alfredo Sauce.
This Primal Kitchen version of alfredo uses a genius trick to mimic the creaminess of butter and cream, it has just a little bit of cashews in it!
