Creamy Vegan Alfredo Sauce
Prep time: 10 minutes Cook time: 10 minutes
1/4 cup flour (gluten-free all purpose or wheat)
1/4 cup olive oil
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1/2 cup non dairy milk
3/4 cup-1 cup water, as needed
1/2 tsp salt
2 Tbsp nutritional yeast
1 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp soy sauce, tamari, or coconut aminos
black pepper to taste
1. In a small saucepan, heat flour on low heat, stirring with a wooden spoon for about 30 seconds until it smells toasty. Add oil and stir to combine into a thin paste. Add garlic and cook on low heat for 1-2 minutes, stirring constantly until it begins to bubble slightly.
2. Keep on low heat and add non-dairy milk, stirring in slowly. It will thicken up. Begin to drizzle in water, whisking as you go until you have a thick, rich sauce consistency, adding more water as needed. Add remaining ingredients, salt through black pepper and stir well to combine. Keep on low heat, letting it bubble gently until serving time. It will be velvety and delicious.
3. Pour over favorite pasta with mixed veggies, broccoli, or rice. Enjoy!
