This luxuriously creamy vegan pasta recipe is soy-free, nut-free, egg-free, & dairy-free!
You definitely don?t need to be a vegan to enjoy this lightened-up alfredo sauce.
It?s shockingly rich and creamy, without any heavy cream in the recipe. While most vegan pasta recipes call for either cashews or tofu to replace heavy cream, this sauce can also be made without either ingredient. Instead, it gets its creaminess from the media?s favorite vegetable of the moment: cauliflower!
If you haven?t tried thickening a sauce with the versatile cauliflower, I can?t recommend it highly enough. It lends a delicious creaminess without all the extra fat and calories, and it sneaks in a healthy vegetable serving you won?t even know you?re eating!
If you?re not a vegan and are wondering about how it might taste, I can tell you I?ve served this recipe?and my even easier Cauliflower Alfredo Sauce recipe?to many non-vegans, always with positive reviews and requests for the recipe.
This healthy alfredo recipe is deceptively easy to make, and the entire thing can come together in under 20 minutes, making it an excellent weeknight meal.
I wanted something a little fancier than my regular cauliflower pasta sauce recipe this time, and we turned the meal even fancier by finding a quiet park in which to eat alfresco. I served the meal with a simple strawberry salad. And thankfully I remembered to bring silverware, because forgetting things is my specialty.
I love how the sun stays out so late in the summer months. You?d never guess that this photo was taken at 7 in the evening:
Side note: To everyone who?s been asking about how I curled my hair in the picture, it was incredibly easy to do. I used the NuMe 32mm Classic Curling Wand, which conditions hair while it curls by disbursing negative ions through the barrel, resulting in super shiny hair with less damage than you?d get from a regular curling iron.
