Easy Dairy-Free Alfredo Sauce


Description

This homemade Easy Dairy-Free Alfredo Sauce recipe is vegan, nut-free, & made with only 7 simple ingredients. You'll never guess the secret healthy ingredient!


Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 2 medium white potatoes, peeled and cubed (about 3 cups)
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 /2 cups dairy-free milk alternative (I used unsweetened almond milk)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast

Instructions

  1. In a microwave-safe bowl, add potatoes and 1/4 cup of water. Heat on high for 8 minutes, or until a fork tender. Drain off water.
  2. Add potatoes and remaining ingredients to a blender.
  3. Blend on high for 1 minute, or until smooth.
  4. Add to pasta, or refrigerate for up to 4 days.

Notes

  • If sauce is too thick or gummy, add a couple tablespoons of warm dairy-free milk, or pasta water if applicable.
  • This sauce is pretty garlicky. If you're not a big garlic fan, omit or use 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder instead.
  • Using a creamy potato like a white or yukon gold helps prevent the sauce from becoming too gummy.
