This is the best 10-Minute Creamy Vegan Alfredo Pasta sauce you’ll ever have- It’s rich and creamy, yet highly nutritious, and perfect for pasta dishes.
Creamy, dreamy pasta! Yes, this sums it up pretty nicely. Today I am presenting you with the best dairy-free Alfredo sauce recipe that I’ve ever made!
This healthy Alfredo sauce is also perfect as a meal-prep option for a wholesome, delicious lunch, or dinner. It can be served with pasta ( I served it with spinach and home-dried tomatoes ) however, you could also serve this sauce with spiralized zucchini or carrot instead, for a low-carb version.
WHAT IS ALFREDO SAUCE?
Traditionally, Alfredo sauce (i.e. Fettuccine Alfredo) is a dairy-filled Italian pasta dish. The main ingredients include butter and cheese, which then became butter, cream, and cheese when it was popularized in America and other parts of the world. The result is a rich, decadent (but fairly unhealthy) sauce.
This Vegan version, however, is a lot healthier, a lot easier to make, and so delicious!
What makes this sauce so creamy?
Then, with a bit of garlic and nutritional yeast flakes – we achieve the perfect creamy cheesy flavor!
To make a pasta dish with the sauce, simply add the sauce to your cooked pasta, add desired veggies, and cook on the hob for a few minutes. The sauce will also thicken!
