Vegan Fettuccine Alfredo Recipe

Last Update: September 27, 2022

Eating vegan means ditching cream, but it doesn’t mean you can’t indulge in crave-worthy meals. Alfredo sauce is typically made with a trifecta of butter, cream, and Parmesan, but our sauce thickens up with a little help from cooked cauliflower and spice cabinet staples like garlic powder and nutmeg. Nutritional yeast brings the cheesy flavor, and silky oat milk blends everything to the perfect texture. Need to make it gluten-free? Just swap in your favorite brown rice pasta for a bowl everyone can curl up with.

Vegan Fettuccine Alfredo

1 pound fettuccine
