Recipe- Vegan Alfredo

Let me start by saying I have looked everywhere for how to make the best vegan alfredo sauce. I have tried countless recipes, to the point that my husband isn’t even able to tell me which one he prefers because he can’t remember. But now, I must say, I have found the best combination for a delicious vegan alfredo sauce. The key to this sauce is canned coconut milk. When making a vegan alfredo, you have to understand that it can never be fully like the real thing. There’s no vegan heavy cream. (As of now!) But this combination of flavors and ingredients is the best and closest I have come to imitating what was previously one of my favorite foods. It is really good served with some green veggies mixed in and topped with red pepper flakes and meatless chicken, if that’s your thing!

Prep time: 20 minutes

Servings: 4


9 oz fettuccine pasta

3 Tablespoons vegan butter

3 cloves crushed garlic

2 Tablespoons flour

1 14 oz cans coconut milk

1 teaspoons black pepper

1/4 cup nutritional yeast

1 teaspoon parsley

Salt to taste

Spinach or broccoli (optional)

Crushed red pepper flakes (optional)

Meatless chicken strips (optional)


Cook pasta according to package directions.

Melt vegan butter over medium heat. Add garlic and flour and stir well.

Add coconut milk and whisk until flour is dissolved.

Add spices and nutritional yeast and mix again. It will begin to thicken.

Serve immediately with pasta and veggies or with your favorite meat substitute.

Becoming vegan has been a life changing experience for me. Cutting back on animal products gives us the ability to change the world in so many ways. I started this blog to have all of my favorite recipes handy when someone asks, "What do you eat?" I am by no means a professional photographer, but I always enjoy visually seeing a recipe, so I do like to include pictures. I'm a busy, stay at home mommy, but try to find the time to add new recipes. I hope to offer delicious and easy plant-based recipes for those who are having trouble transitioning, already vegan, or simply want to incorporate a few vegan meals here and there. 🙂
