The ultimate Vegan Alfredo that will blow away all your guests, shock them that it is dairy-free and takes just 20 minutes to make. Rich, creamy, decadent and just 7 ingredients and without any butter or oil!
Sometimes the most amazing recipes happen as the result of impromptu recipes. This recipe is one of those times. I was planning on making my Vegan Garlic Alfredo for dinner one night, but realized I was too low on cashews (gasp!) and out of lemon juice. So, I decided to just throw together some ingredients and wing it with what I had and holy moly, this one turned out richer and sooo amazing. I double dare you to make this for somebody (don't tell them it's not full of butter or cream) and tell me they don't love it. While I love my original (it's the most popular recipe on the blog).
HOW TO MAKE VEGAN ALFREDO
To make this vegan alfredo in just 20 minutes you will need:
- cashew butter
- vegetable broth
- brown rice flour
- apple cider vinegar
- some dried Italian herbs
- garlic powder
- nutritional yeast
- apple cider vinegar
It's quite different than my original, which uses a lot of cooked onions and garlic, this one does not. But this one with the rice flour makes it so creamy. My husband scarfed it down SO fast and said "this is the best you've ever made". We both debated on me calling it "Restaurant Style Alfredo". It is just that good.
You will start out by adding the cashew butter, brown rice flour, apple cider vinegar, Italian herbs, nutritional yeast, salt and just blend them up in your blender. I used my Vitamix.
Add them to a pan and it will be very thin (like water), as in the above picture, but after just a few minutes of cooking, it will turn out creamy and fabulous like this.
I'm not kidding that it comes together in 20 minutes. It took exactly 19 minutes to do the pasta from start to finish and only 12-15 minutes for the sauce.
This is also perfect for all of you that don't have high powered blenders needed for raw cashews in so many sauces.
This alfredo sauce is so healthy, gluten-free and 100% oil-free. It is also just 8 ingredients (+salt).
