Engine-2-Friendly, Oil Free Vegan Alfredo Sauce

4 Aug

Gotta give props to the Happy Herbivore cookbook yet again—thanks for another great recipe, Lindsay!


I have to say, I was extremely skeptical about her Fettuccine Alfredo recipe because I have tried to do this in the past and most of the recipes that did not involve heavy use of macadamia nuts just straight up sucked. This was a pleasant and delicious surprise, and took 5 minutes to whip up in the Vitamix and then heat up on the stove. I did not tamper with the seasonings at all. Here’s a link again to her website, where there are lots of free recipes to try: http://happyherbivore.com/recipes/. Unfortunately, this one is not free but you should just BUY THE BOOK. So worth every penny if you want simple, satisfying, healthy plant-based recipes. Also great if you, like me, are following the Engine 2 plan of plant-based eating. There’s not a ton of recipes in the E2 book (Rip: please come out with a huge, companion recipe book!) so this is my go-to cookbook and has been for the past year. I think tonight I am making Hippie Loaf–I will let you know how it turns out!

I decided to use some vegan butternut squash ravioli that I had in the freezer since I had no fettuccine on hand:


These are delicious—just don’t let them get freezer-burned. Here’s the ravioli before I loaded the veggies on:


I sauteed what I happened to have on hand in the fridge: diced carrots, broccoli, snow peas, mushrooms, peppers and onions. Finished result:
