Fettuccine Alfredo, a simple yet delicious Italian favorite. Alfredo sauce is the most perfect base sauce for anything and everything and I can’t get enough of it. Veganzing Alfredo sauce to where it ACTUALLY tastes like Alfredo sauce is the probably the most amazing feeling ever. Now you can enjoy this Vegan version that’s also gluten free AND oil free; healthy & tasty!
Does it really taste like Alfredo?
I’ve tried LOTS of Vegan Alfredo sauces and have tried making this sauce several times and none of them came close to actually tasting like Alfredo sauce, until I made this one. It’s been approved by non-vegans too!! The key is to follow the ingredients exactly without any substitutions – if you want that Alfredo taste.
What else can I use Alfredo sauce with?
EVERYTHING!!! This sauce is just out of this world amazing. It goes great with almost any kind of pasta and you can add your own additions like sautéed mushrooms or even Gardein chicken strips to make Chicken Alfredo. You can also use this sauce to make your very own Vegan White Sauce Pizza…can I just say that it’s just the most amazing thing ever!
How do I get the sauce to be extra creamy?
Vitamix! It’s seriously the best blender in the market in my opinion. I use it for all my sauces, dips, cheeses, and soups. It’s the only blender I’ve used that actually makes my cheese sauces extra creamy and lump free, even when I throw raw cashews (without soaking) in there. If you don’t have a Vitamix, then I would strongly suggest to soak your cashews in boiling water for about 10 minutes and use a good quality high speed blender (Instant Pot Blender is my second favorite and much more affordable than Vitamix).
