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.

Love it. The recipe makes a HUGE amount, I wonder if it would freeze? I prefer less garlic because I'm not hugely keen on it. Very quick to make and is very tasty.

Definitely freezable. Also, you can dehydrate it and use it as raw parmesan cheese :)

Jennifer, the only nut that will do instead is macadamia nuts

Made this today, and it was great except I'm not a huge fan of thyme...can't wait to try it with fresh basil or rosemary...or maybe just copious amounts of black pepper! And can't wait to try it with a vitamix instead of my sub-par blender...I'm sure that'll also make a difference!

Hi Mel! You'll love the Vitamix if you get one. I too had a sub-par blender for my first 6 months fully raw. They are awesome and worth it when you can swing it.

If your blender really sucks, next time you can try soaking the cashews in warm water for 45 minutes or so before blending (to soften them up). (Pat dry before using.)

I love Thyme, but I have a few things that I really can't stand. Like pears! We all have our preferences. We humans are fascinating!

Your alfredo looks yummy. Can I have a bite? :P

Very good for raw and non raw dishes. Love this in place of Alfredo/cheese sauce on cooked pasta.

To me, I think this raw alfredo totally appeals to non raw people. Am I crazy or does it actually taste like alfredo sauce?? I think it does, but it has been a long time since I've had the "normal" alfredo taste in my mouth :)

I love your site. it has been so much fun exploring raw foods! I do have one question though, is there any way a nut-heavy diet can clog up your digestive system? Is it okay to use the nut heavy entrees for 3 meals in a day? just wondering....

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.
