That is how to describe this beautiful vegan Alfredo recipe. And it is easy to make so anyone can do it!
I will suggest having a good blender to get it ultra creamy & dreamy. But if you have yet to invest in a fancy blender, soak the cashews beforehand and do your best.
I love this recipe because – in addition to being delicious – this vegan Alfredo is made with simple plant foods. Only 6 ingredients, plus a couple spices creates an easy vegan dinner in under 30 minutes.
To make this simple vegan dinner a complete meal, add in lots of veggies. I love to heat frozen broccoli and peas to add to the pasta, but feel free to use whatever is your favorite, or whatever you have on hand.

The cashews and hemp seeds provide a creamy base, while the starches from the steamed potato thickens the sauce. Nutritional yeast add a touch of cheesiness. Then all you need is garlic, salt, and pepper for flavor! Easy peasy.
Since this plant based Alfredo sauce is gluten free, simply use gluten free pasta to make this a quick and easy gluten free vegan dinner!
