Easy Vegan Alfredo Sauce Recipe: Cauliflower Cashew Alfredo Sauce | Soul in the RawVegan Alfredo Sauce Recipe: Simple, Delicious, and Oh So Healthy

Just a little note on this divine vegan alfredo sauce. When you make it, remind yourself how healthy it is (it will be very difficult to remember since this sauce tastes so good!) This vegan alfredo sauce contains beans, nuts, and even cruciferous veg.

Because we are using steamed cauliflower, it is a good idea to make sure we follow one of Dr. Greger’s methods for cooking cruciferous vegetables, to maintain their health benefits (specifically to maximize the levels of the cancer-fighting enzyme, sulforaphane).

One way is to pre-chop the cauliflower 40 minutes before steaming, but I think that is way too time-consuming. Another is to add a pinch of mustard seeds (ground up) to the dish, which is perfect! I totally forgot to do this in the video, but you will remember, right? (Yes, you will. I will put it in the recipe, don’t worry!)

How to Use The Vegan Alfredo Sauce in Meals

Also, here are some ways to use this delicious vegan alfredo sauce in your plant-based meals:

  • Add it to zucchini noodles, like in this recipe:
  • Mix it with your favorite whole-grain pasta. Mine is this one.
  • Use it in my delicious lasagna recipe. 
  • Add it to an Italian-themed buddha bowl, with olives, roasted eggplant, tomatoes or sun-dried tomatoes, cucumbers, and greens. Yum!

Can’t you tell how much I adore this recipe?
