Raw alfredo sauce recipe
Posted in: Raw Savory Sauces and Condiments
2 cups unsoaked cashews
1/2 cup pine nuts (or just use more cashews if you don't have pine nuts)
1 tablespoon lemon juice
3 cloves garlic
1 1/2 cups water
1 teaspoon thyme spice
1 teaspoon sea salt
1. Throw it all in the blender and blend 'til it gets alfredoey! It'll get really nice and creamy, so keep blending... And you're done!
2. Serve over "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 for the love of God don't use cucumber for the noodles! (Cucumbers are too wet; avoid cucumber noodles.)
The Rawtarian's Thoughts
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, as seen in this photo.
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.
