Directions

  • 1. Throw all ingredients in the blender and blend 'til they get alfredoey! It'll get really nice and creamy, so keep blending... And you're done!
  • 2. Serve over raw vegan "noodles!"
  • Raw Noodles
  • Of course, you know that raw "noodles" are simply spiralized zucchini or squash. (Or kelp noodles that you buy at a store.)
  • If you don't have a fancy spiralizer nor any kelp noodles on hand, just do what I do: peel the vegetable and discard the peelings. Once all of the tough peel has been removed, just use your vegetable peeler to make "noodles" out of the remainder of the vegetable. I usually discard the really seedy core though. Zucchini makes the best noodles.
  • I'd recommend zucchini. They have the best texture and their taste is quite bland and it takes on the sauce's flavour very nicely. But please don't use cucumber for the noodles! (Cucumbers are too wet; avoid cucumber noodles.)

The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

I miss cheese, I really do. But I tell ya, this raw alfredo sauce recipe has a cheesy, creamy texture that is oh, so alfredoey.

I can honestly say that I like this alfredo sauce more than SAD (standard American diet) alfredo sauce. HONEST!

If you've tried my raw mayonnaise recipe the taste is quite similar, although this alfredo sauce is quite garlicky, whereas the raw mayo does not contain any garlic. Enjoy this absolutely delicious alfredo sauce recipe.

This recipe is quite large, and it actually keeps in the fridge really nicely.

This recipe works best with zucchini "noodles" (see below for more info) or with raw vegan kelp noodles.

Toppings

Sometimes I top my alfredo sauce and noodles with vegetables. Your taste-buds will let you know what topping you might like to try on your pasta.

My husband prefers broccoli and red pepper. I love parsley, mushrooms, tomatoes, and olives. To each his or her own! Edit: Actually, I love black pepper and parsley and that's it! Simpler is better!

But for your first time just try it simple: raw alfredo noodles and sauce.

Hi Liz, most people find that having nut-heavy recipes for all meals is not well suited to the body and they move towards less and less nut-based recipes the more in tune they get to their body. For me, I usually have no nuts at breaky (usually a green smoothie), not many nuts at lunch, a heavier dinner (nut-based) and then sometimes a nutty dessert.

Soooooo good, tastes way better than the real thing. I mean I was eating it with a spatula. Added a little more garlic , sub fresh parsley instead of thyme and half a tsp more himilayan pink salt. Thank you muchas!!!

Rawmazing!! My other half (only raw if I'm serving it to him..lol) loves this. We've had it on the kelp noodles and zucchini noodles. Used it as "mayo" on veggie burgers, too.

Do you heat it or just eat it cold?? I'm pretty sure raw food is supposed to be unheatened so that's probably considered as a stupid question. But eouldn't it feel weird to eat it cold? Do you cook the zucchini for a couple of minutes? And here I thought zucchini and squash were the same vegetable :sSs haha

Hi Rebecca,

Great questions! When it comes out of the blender, is it warmish -- not too cold. Also, no need to cook the zucc. It's not too weird cold, I promise. Think of it more like pasta salad if that helps your mind get around it :)

I made this tonight, it was GOOD! I couldn't use the garlic because I'm allergic to it & I didn't have any thyme spice. Even with these omissions, it was fantastic, rich & creamy just like true Alfredo sauce. I'm the only one eating it but I made the full recipe so that I can thin it out with a little bit of water & use it as a salad dressing.

This was really great! Thank you so much for this recipe! I am working on becoming completely raw and this recipe will definitely become a staple. It was different...but in a good way! I am used to eating pasta while it's hot, of course, but eating the raw zucchini noodles with this sauce really satisfied my pasta craving.
