Vegan Cheese Sauce

Vegan Alfredo Pasta

Guys, I have a confession to make. There is a possibility that I made this Alfredo sauce 3 times in the last 3 weeks and I’d be ready to make it again. This creamy vegan cheeze sauce is so flavorful and thick that it could actually pass as real cheese sauce.

I have made it with farfalle, with gnocchi and with maccaroni so far and also added some broccoli to it, which was an awesome combination. I also might have dipped some nachos in the leftover sauce… You see this one is truly versatile and quite addictive.

  • 2 garlic cloves (optional)
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp fresh herbs (rosemary, thyme), chopped

Instructions:

  1. Soak the cashews in hot water for a few hours or over night if you don’t have a good blender.
  2. Chop the onion and cook it in 1 cup (240 ml) of the veggie broth in a pot over low – medium heat. After a few minutes, add the garlic and cook until almost all of the broth is evaporated.
  3. Add the drained cashews, onion & garlic, salt & pepper, herbs, nutritional yeast, lemon juice and 0.75 of the remaining broth to a blender and blend until smooth. Add more broth if you’d like the consistency to be a bit thinner.
