Alfredo Sauce [Vegan]

This is the first in a series of pasta sauces that I've attempted to make vegan. Nonvegan alfredo sauce is mostly dairy products, so recreating it without using ANY dairy, can seem daunting. But, it was very simple and required hardly any ingredients. And, it was so yummy that Adam and I both agreed that nonvegan alfredo is not something we will miss.

1/4 cup Vegan Butter
1/2 cup Vegan Cream Cheese (I love the one from Follow Your Heart)
3/4 cup Soy Creamer
1/2 cup Vegan Parmesan Cheese
1 tsp Garlic Powder

On low heat, melt butter in a small to medium saucepan. Add cream cheese and wisk while it melts. Mix in garlic powder amd creamer. Lastly, wisk in parmesan cheese and continue cooking for a few more minutes. Remove pan from heat and and allow sauce to thicken.

We poured this over 2 1/2 cups of cooked pasta and mixed in some sun-dried tomatoes. It was incredibly delicious. Broccoli or asparagus would be other great additions.


  1. Hey! Saw your recipe on VegWeb and it looks great! I have had the hardest time making a good vegan alfredo, but this one looks really good! What kind of vegan parm did you use?


  2. I love this recipe because there's not a lot to it. And it doesn't have flour like most recipes I've found so it stays cheesy. I used this cheese. I found it at whole foods.

  3. Hey I just so happen to have that in my fridge. I'm going to make the recipe very soon. THANKS!
