WHAT IS ALFREDO SAUCE?

Alfredo sauce is a creamy thick sauce that’s usually used for pasta dishes.

This homemade vegan alfredo pasta comes out in about 10 minutes. 10 minutes!! That’s all you need to whip up this quick yummy dinner.

What makes this sauce so creamy?

Cashew Nuts!
Then, with a bit of garlic and nutritional yeast flakes – we achieve the perfect creamy cheesy flavour!

As you begin to cook vegan more and more, you will realize very quickly how handy cashew nuts are. They are naturally creamy, so you can make all sorts of creamy recipes with cashew nuts. I love making cheesecakes as well out of cashews. They are amazing. A vegan stable for sure.
