Cashew Alfredo Sauce

Cashew cream makes a rich and delicious vegan alfredo sauce.
Yield about 3 cups
Time 15 minutes
  • blender
  • medium saucepan
  • whisk
  • 4½ c cashew cream  (or 4 c water + ½ c cashew butter)
  • ½ c white wine
  • ⅓ c nutritional yeast
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 t salt
  • 1 t nutmug
  • pepper

Blend the water and cashew butter to make cashew cream, then blend in the remaining ingredients.

Simmer over medium-low heat, whisking frequently, for about 10 minutes, until thickened.

Notes The classic recipe featuring alfredo sauce is of course fettucine alfredo – this is enough sauce for about 16 oz (one pound) of pasta.

Alfredo sauce is also amazing in spinach-based dishes like crêpes florentine (shown) and spinach lasagna.

Variations: Add peas and/or mushrooms.
