I love Alfredo sauce but dairy based Alfredo is too taxing on my digestive system so I’ve created a recipe that makes both my taste buds and my tummy happy!
Serve over prepared spaghetti squash or zucchini noodles or use as a sauce for Zucchini Flat Bread Pizza with chicken and Herbed Summer Veggies.
Vegan Alfredo Sauce
- Yield: 4 Servings 1x
2 1/2 cups raw cashews
1 Tbsp. coconut oil
1/2 cup white onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced

1/2 tsp. fresh ground black pepper
1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
Place raw cashews in a bowl and cover with water. Allow them to soak for at least 30 minutes.
In a small sauce pan over medium heat add the coconut oil. Saute the onion until it is wilted and golden, stir in garlic and saute for a couple minutes.
Drain and rinse the cashews. Place the cashews in a high powered blender with 1 cup of the coconut milk. Blend until smooth and creamy.
Add the sauteed onions and garlic, lemon juice, sea salt and pepper. Blend until smooth and creamy adding remaining coconut milk a little at a time if needed.
Add parsley and pulse a couple times until mixed in.
