Please don’t mind my super quick and not very pretty picture of this vegan Alfredo.. It was an instagram picture taken pretty late at night, haha! This is THEE best Alfredo recipe. Seriously. It is a must try.

Ingredients

  • 1lb fettuccine noodles (cooked according to package instructions)
  • 1 can coconut milk (or approximately 1 and 1/2 cups)
  • 1/2 cup raw cashews
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast flakes
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 pinch garlic powder

Directions

Step 1
Cook and drain fettuccine noodles according to package instructions. I usually add a tiny bit of olive oil to the noodles as they cook to prevent them from sticking together. Of course, most of it drains off of them. Return drained noodles to a pot or large skillet and set aside away from the stove.
Step 2
In a blender, combine remaining ingredients and blend until very smooth.
Step 3
Pour blender contents over fettuccine noodles in the pot or skillet and place on medium heat.
Step 4
Cook until sauce begins to thicken slightly–this usually only takes about 2-5 minutes. Be careful not to let your sauce boil for too long, as this results in a clumpy sauce. This sauce will thicken a little more as it cools.
Step 5
Serve hot and enjoy!
