The creamy, vegan, alfredo sauce we love
This pasta sauce is absolutely not alfredo.
But if you don’t do dairy, THIS recipe is the next best thing.
It’s creamy, it’s cheesy, it’s vegan alfredo sauce.
And let me be the first to say, it’s really, really good.
Another cauliflower recipe that's great in a Vitamix
This is the 8th cauliflower recipe we’ve made in the last eight weeks. So to say we’re overdone on cauliflower is an understatement.

It tastes like alfredo!
It’s definitely a Vitamix-friendly recipe, but can be made in any blender.

P.S. The quick video demo really makes this sauce come alive.
