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.

Hey, I am very new to all of this and just interested to know how much this recipe makes? It seems like a lot of nuts to consume. How many people would it feed? Does the sauce keep? Cheers:)

Hi Estella, so glad to have you in TRK! Welcome. :)

Great question. If you are using this recipe as a "pasta" sauce then it'll probably make approximately four medium-to-large servings.

This recipe does keep very well in the fridge - for approximately 3-4 days. Just stir it briefly before using. Store in fridge tightly sealed.

YES! This is amazing. I'm still new to the raw life, and whenever I am tempted to go back, I just make one of your recipes and instantly the temptation vanishes!!!!

For this, I used pumpkin seeds because I didn't have pine nuts and I used fresh basil because I had no thyme, and it still came out phenomenal. THANK YOU!

I made zuchini noodles, tossed in some olive oil and salt and then added this sauce. I also used it as a veggie dip. Fantastic!

Another Rawtarian home run! I was absolutely shocked at how creamy this turned out! And it really sticks to the zucchini pasta, which is excellent!

Hey Mike! Haha yes, it's a nice one. It's the cashews that make it so creamy :)

Second time trying this. I liked it more this time. I rinsed my zucchini in warm water which made them limp like pasta. Yummy!

In the comments I saw mention of making a substitution for nutritional yeast in the recipe. I don't SEE any nutritional yeast listed in the recipe ingredients. Has there been a change in the recipe? Just wondering as I've used nutritional yeast before in a mixture to sub for Parmesan cheese. It sounds like it might be a positive addition to a raw Alfredo sauce.

Hi Jane, this recipe does not and never has called for nutritional yeast. However, I do have a similar recipe that is really yummy that does use it. In the app look for "macaroni" and you will find it. Here's the website link: http://www.therawtarian.com/raw-macaroni-and-cheese-recipe

I know the cashews shouldn't be soaked...but should the raw pine nuts be soaked or not?
Thank You

I LOVE YOUR RECIPES!! I am on a special diet and there are a few things that I am allergic to that are common in many of your recipes. Typically when a recipe calls for cashews I substitute with macadamia nuts. What do you think? What would you substitute for dates? Also, what would you use as a black/white pepper substitute? Lastly, what would you use in place of nutritional yeast?

Thanks!

Hi Kristin

1. Instead of cashews you can use macadamia nuts

2. Instead of dates... that's a hard one. It definitely depends on the recipe! Usually dates serve two purposes - to bulk up the recipe, provide stickiness and most importantly, to sweeten

3. Pepper substitute? I would just omit

4. Nutritional yeast - there is no easy replacement for nutritional yeast
