Recipe 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.

Are you concerned about consuming too many nuts like the cashews?

Hi Cindy! Everything in moderation! For example, have a giant batch of healthy zucchini noodles, small amount of alfredo sauce and huge green salad on the side. Yummy, healthy, delicious!

Hi! Recently I've started to eat more unprocessed and healthy food and I am soooo glad that I found you!ntries people mean something The recipe looks great but I don't know what exactly do you mean by cup? Is it typical 250ml (so for water it would be 1.5x250ml=375ml)? In Poland usually we don't use 'cup' as a measure that is why I am asking :)) I can't wait to cook this!

Hi Ewa, 1 cup = 250ml. You did the math right! Hope you like the sauce!

I must say I was skeptical about this, I'm a big regular Alfredo fan, but this dish really hit the spot and was absolutely delicious! I have used zucchini and yellow squash both, spiralized, and love it. My husband, who has always been a big meat eater, was delighted with the taste in this and we both were very satisfied after, no need for anything else. I am finding it unreal how good your dishes are!!! I served this to a very picky co-worker today and she loved it too. She couldn't believe she was actually having seconds!

I did add in some nutritional yeast to boost the "cheese" flavor and also an extra clove of garlic (we love the stuff). All your recipes are SO good! Thanks so much for sharing your creativity!

Are there any nuts I can substitute for cashews in this recipe. My son is allergic to cashews, but the reviews make me want to try this recipe sooooo bad! lol

Hi Vio!

The best substitution I can offer for this one is macadamia nuts :)

Hello Rawtarian. When you talk about the thyme 'spice', do you mean the leaves or the powder?

Hi Santiago,

The thyme spice I use is dried and comes in a bottle. The leaves look like little pine needles :)
