I have seen many recipes for Vegan Alfredo sauces. This one is largely from Vegan Yum Yum but I did modify the amounts of ingredients to my own taste. Though this isn't a one for one replacement to Alfredo sauce it is an interesting flavor and I think you could do a lot in terms of mixing vegetables into this dish. I especially think that mushrooms would be a winner with this one.
1 pound whole wheat pasta (use whatever shape you like)
Water to cook pasta in
1 cup soy milk
1/2 cup raw cashews
1/8 to 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
3 tbsp low sodium soy sauce
3 tbsp Earth Balance Buttery Sticks
1 tbsp tahini (sesame butter)
3 tsp Dijon mustard
1 1/2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 tsp paprika
1 pinch nutmeg
2 cloves of garlic
salt and pepper to taste
Heat water in a large pot to a rolling boil. Add pasta and cook according to package directions.
While pasta is cooking place all ingredients in either a food processor or high powered blender. Mix on high until all ingredients are well Incorporated and the sauce smooth.
Drain pasta, place in a bowl and cover with the desired amount of sauce.
