Unbelievably rich and creamy, this easy vegan Alfredo is bound to become a favorite. Be sure to check the ingredient list on your unsweetened almond milk, as some contain vanilla flavoring even if they aren't labeled as such. For this recipe, you'll want almond milk without any vanilla.

  • Meanwhile, bring a large saucepan of water to a boil. Cook fettuccine according to package directions. Drain well. Return the pasta to the pot.

  • Transfer the cauliflower and garlic to a blender. Add broth, almond milk, oil, mustard, salt and pepper. Blend until very smooth and creamy. Pour the sauce over the pasta and toss to coat. Serve topped with herbs.

Tips

Tip: Chicken-flavored broth, a vegetarian broth despite its name, is preferable to vegetable broth in some recipes for its hearty, rich flavor. Often called "no-chicken broth," it can be found with the soups in the natural-foods section of most supermarkets.

It's dishes like this that get people making fun of us. Please can we just call it "pasta with cauliflower puree sauce" because it's not remotely Alfredo. Two stars because at least pasta tastes good (but semolina pasta is much better). Basically this is a dish for people who have been eating vegan so long they don't remember what dairy tastes like.

This was great. Like Lisa said in her comment don't expect full on Alfredo sauce flavor. The texture is spot on but the taste is a tad different - but delicious! I added mushrooms which were a great taste compliment. Also I topped with chives. Read More

This is a good recipie is not like an Alfredo but it s great as a healthy pasta option. For creamier results add 1/4 cup of soaked cashews (you can soak this overnight or with hot water around 30 min) well drained. The cashews really make this recipe super creamy. Read More

I love this twist on alfredo. It's definitely not going to taste like a traditional alfredo it's lighter and healthier and has veggies though! A lot of my friends can't eat dairy and this is a perfect creamy sauce for me to make when they come over. Read More

Wonderful! The sauce could use a little nutritional yeast to give it a more cheesy flavor. I also found that it makes too much sauce for 8 oz. pasta. 16 oz pasta was perfect and fed 5 adults as a main course. Read More
