Today I’m thrilled to have an amazing guest blogger, Sophia from Veggies Don’t Bite, share this wonderful Vegan recipe with us! I had the pleasure of meeting Sophia a few months ago at one of my 5:45AM workout sessions. We started chatting after class and I found that not only does she have an amazing food blog, but she also mainly eats a gluten-free and vegan diet! She writes from the heart, takes beautiful mouth-watering pictures, and develops great recipes on her blog that cater towards all types of diets! Here is her post and recipe for Vegan Creamy Mushroom Alfredo Sauce with Spaghetti Squash & Noodles!
It’s no secret that my family loves pasta. Any type, any toppings, any sauces. I have experimented with quite a few types but the one type I had left was a creamy white sauce to satisfy our non-vegan Alfredo cravings. Although a cream based pasta dish tasted so good going down in my pre-vegan days, it always made me sick. So coming up with a veganized version of Alfredo has always been on my bucket list.
My Cashew Walnut Cream Sauce takes center stage in this recipe. It’s such a great base for any time you need to get that creamy flavor without all the dairy. It’s so versatile and was a perfect addition for this mushroom Alfredo. A little white wine and some garlic really upped the flavors, and once the mushrooms were added back in, it made for an amazing sauce that in no way tastes vegan! This is a really simple sauce to make, and if you have the Cashew Walnut Cream base already done, it is even faster. The great thing is that in the time it takes for the spaghetti squash to cook, you can prepare the sauce. By the time your sauce is simmering, the squash is done so all you have to do is cook up some pasta and you have a delicious meal that will wow even your non vegan friends! I hope you enjoy this as much as we did!
