Vegan Alfredo Sauce
Recipe Type: Main
Make with a rich and creamy almond beverage instead of dairy, this vegan pasta sauce is the a perfect substitution with delicious spiced and nutty flavors.
  • One medium sized head of organic cauliflower, washed & cut into florets
  • 1 cup of Dream Ultimate Almond beverage (unsweetened)
  • ¼ cup of nutritional yeast
  • 1-2 cloves of garlic, peeled
  • Pinch nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon of Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon of lemon juice
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • ⅓ cup fresh or frozen organic green peas
  1. First, bring a large stockpot of water and a few pinches of salt to a boil for your pasta. I used a gluten free pasta.
  2. Next up:: In a steamer basket/pot on the stovetop, bring your water to a boil and steam your cauliflower until fork tender (4 minutes or so). Then carefully drain and set that aside. Into your high powered blender or Vitamix, add your cauliflower, Dream Ultimate Almond, nutritional yeast, garlic, nutmeg, Dijon and lemon juice. Blend until smooth and creamy.
  3. Taste the sauce once you're done blending. Add salt and pepper to taste and blend again quickly to incorporate. Then reserve the sauce until your pasta is done cooking. If using a gluten free pasta – drain in a colander and do a quick rinse (a trick I learned when using gf pastas). Then add to pasta to a large serving bowl. Top with your sauce and peas (I normally let the peas out at room temperature while I’m prepping the sauce so they thaw a bit). Give it a good toss to coat the noodles with the sauce. Season with fresh ground pepper and enjoy!
