This turned out crazy good and super cheesy-tasting.

I’ve decided to try to cut dairy as much as I can for my overall health, weight loss, and health of my growing baby!

But I LOVE dairy.  Feta Cheese on my salads, Yogurt with my fruit in the morning or in a smoothie, and especially CREAMY CHEESY ALFREDO for cheat days.

However, I found out how to make a delicious VEGAN alfredo.

I’ve tried a few recipes – but this one is my favorite so far.

Vegan, Gluten Free Dairy Free


  • 1 White Onion, Chopped
  • 4 Cloves Garlic, Minced
  • 2 Cups Vegetable Broth (chicken if you aren’t vegan)
  • 1/2 Cup Cashews, Raw
  • 1/4 cup Nutritional Yeast
  • 1 Tbsp Lemon Juice
  • 1/2 Tsp Salt
  • 1/4 Tsp Pepper


  1. First soak 1/2 cup cashews for about five hours- unless you have a great blender!
  2. Boil 1 medium onion in 1 cup broth until tender.
  3. Then add your 4 cloves of garlic.
  4. Simmer until water disappears, but don’t burn your onions and garlic!  I make sure to stir it until the water disappears.  This is really the only time-intensive thing about this whole recipe!
  5. Put the 1/4 cup nutritional yeast, dash of salt and pepper, onions and garlic, 1 tbsp lemon juice, and a 1/2 cup broth to blender and blend until creamy.
  6. WHOA!  Some people add a little Dijon mustard and avocado to kill the nutritional yeast but nutri-yeast is good for you- and it really grows on you if you’re having a hard time adjusting!

Bon Apetit!
