Vegan alfredo sauce?? What the what?? This vegan alfredo is bomb!! Try it! It would be even better with homemade pasta!
Vegan Alfredo Sauce
- 1 white onion, chopped
- 4 garlic cloves, crushed
- 1 bag cauliflower rice (see note)
- 2 cups vegetable broth
- 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
- 1 tablespoon fresh squeezed lemon juice
- 2 teaspoons sea salt
- 1 teaspoon soy sauce
- 3/4 c. cashews (soaked overnight or boiled for 20 minutes)
Heat a bit of water in a medium size pot over medium high heat. Add the onion and let it cook for 3-4 minutes, or until it is soft and translucent. Add the garlic and cook for one minute. Add the cauliflower and vegetable broth to the pot, Cook until cauliflower is done–about 10 – 15 minutes until it is done.
Transfer cauliflower mix to a heavy duty blender, like a Vetamix, and add remaining ingredients, mix from low speed to high. Blend until creamy. Transfer this back into the medium sized pot and heat for a few minutes until it is hot. Service on your favorite pasta. Enjoy!
Note: This is the cauliflower rice I like to buy at Costco. It works great for this recipe.
