Vegan Fettuccine Alfredo

This delicious vegan fettuccine alfredo is my go-to meal when I’m cooking for a group of people. Not only is it super easy to make, but even picky eaters and skeptics of vegan food love it. Everyone is usually surprised that there’s no cheese in it, since the nutritional yeast and cashews create a convincingly cheesy taste and texture. I usually add kale, because kale goes fabulously with the sauce, but you can sub with any of your favorite vegetables.

  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 tbsp teff flour or other gluten-free flour
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 onion or 1 shallot, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 1/4 cup + 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 7 stalks kale, chopped or ripped into small shreds
  • 12 to 16 oz fettuccine pasta

Add the cashews, water, white wine, nutritional yeast, teff flour, sea salt, onion, garlic, and 1/4 cup olive oil to a blender. Blend on highest setting until smooth.

Put the kale in a bowl, add 1 tbsp of olive oil, and massage oil onto the leaves.

Heat alfredo sauce over low heat until thick, about 5 minutes. Add a few pinches of sea salt to taste.

Once the pasta has been cooked and drained, return to pot and top with the kale. Pour the sauce over the pasta and kale, and mix well. Garnish with ground black pepper.
