Healthy vegan alfredo linguine recipe that is oil free, weight loss friendly (410 calories), done in 30 minutes, and budget friendly ($1.29 per serving).
The easy vegan alfredo sauce is made with herbs, spices, cauliflower, and cashews. The nuts and vegetables give the sauce a creamy texture. Make sure you soak the cashews well so they blend into a cream sauce better.
In the picture below, the alfredo sauce has a green tint to it because I blended parsley into it (kind of like a green smoothie). But if you leave the parsley out and add it after blending it will look more like a normal alfredo sauce.
This vegan alfredo sauce is much healthier than typical cheese alfredo sauce because it only contains cauliflower and nuts. The sauce is made with whole plants so you’ll automatically ditch the cholesterol and extremely lower the saturated fat content.
