Holy holy holy you guys. This is the ultimate vegan alfredo sauce to make. It doesn’t have any cauliflower in it either like most do.

We are keeping things pretty simple and tasty over here with cashews, broth, onions, garlic and a few other easy ingredients. And this recipe comes together so quickly. You don’t have to soak the cashews overnight, just for a few minutes while you cook the onions and garlic anyways. So you can 100000% prep this as a last minute meal. You know me, I have zero patience when it comes to things like that. Plus sometimes ya gotta be a little spontaneous with what you are eating.

If you are not vegan (like me) and want to add some protein to this dish – you totally can. I love adding some cooked chicken or you can even add some tofu for a meatless option.

This is one of those recipes that tastes super indulgent yet it’s not. And it will satisfy your comfort food craving for something yummy.

I cannot wait to hear what you guys think!!

  1. Delicious! I tried it with chicken broth as I am not vegan. It added to the flavor. I added more cashews to make it creamier. Added it to egg noodles. Yum.

  2. This recipe is easy to follow and healthier than any alfredo sauce I’ve ever made! Happy to try healthier variations of my fave recipes! Thank you xx
