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.

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

What is the black stuff in the picture? Looks like some black pepper but the bigger seed looking things are what I am talking about. Hey I love your site. I am not ready to go fully raw yet but I am diabetic and your recipes more than quench my sweet tooth and my blood sugar does not go sky rocketing over the moon. I love all the recipes so far so you may get me yet. Thanks for helping to improve my health my dear.

Just tried this recipe tonight and I sliced yellow squash, cucumbers and carrots in thin slices and them drizzled the sauce over it. Also chopped some fresh garden tomatoes over it and it was good. I don't know if anyone has ever tried this but I was thinking about trying it over raw rice - the Lotus forbidden black rice that you can soak overnight and then I drain it over the course of the day to eat for supper. Typically I serve it with an olive oil basil sauce or an olive oil chili powder sauce but I want to try it with the alfredo! Just wondering if anyone has tried it yet!

This recipe is incredible! My husband and I tried kelp noodles and were so surprized by how crunchy they were. Is that how they should be or was it a bad batch? Everyone is always talking about kelp noodles but I have never heard mention of such an extreme texture.
