Supplies You'll Need:


  • Add the cashews, nutritional yeast, water, mustard, and garlic to the blender. 
  • Blend until the mixture is smooth and creamy. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • For serving: Heat the vegan alfredo sauce in a large frying pan, over medium heat until warmed through. Toss with your favorite pasta, and enjoy! 


Don't be scared of the nutritional yeast - it adds a wonderful cheesy flavor to the pasta. 
Variations - To make a vegan mushroom alfredo sauce (as pictured), simply saute some fresh mushrooms in the frying pan before adding the blended sauce. Mix it all together to heat through and serve. Yum!
