Dairy-Free Alfredo Sauce

When you’re in the mood for a dairy-free alfredo sauce (i.e. something creamy, cheesy and actually not bad for you) try this one. I made it last weekend using the version in this Eggplant Parmesan recipe from Fat Free Vegan, then used the leftovers on my Loaded Baked Potato for lunch the next day. I think I might have become slightly addicted because I started craving it and also started mucking with the recipe.

So I came up with this version the very next day to put in our Vegan Baked Ziti and after finding myself eating it by the spoonful I decided I had a problem. I had to photograph it in a hurry and pour it on the Vegan Baked Ziti before I ate it all.

We’ve used this dairy-free alfredo sauce in the following recipes:

You could also use it for the following:

  • Pour it over tortilla chips and top with corn, black olives, salsa, and jalapenos for a tasty nacho dish
  • Steam broccoli and cauliflower and pour it over the top as a side dish
  • Drizzle some over a corn or whole wheat tortilla with beans, lettuce, tomatoes, and veggies for a healthy twist on a quesadilla

This is a little different from our first Cheezy Sauce as it is soy-based and has a slightly different flavor.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
