This recipe was designed to impress eaters of all ages and preferences. Any suggestions? This is my go-to pasta dish to make for people who arent vegan! I recommend veggie broth or just omitting it! It was just as decadent as the original, but no animals were harmed and we made a much smaller environmental impact. Thanks for sharing! Before blending, it was very clumpy as was mentioned in the recipe, but after blending, the sauce became gelatinous and slimy. Thanks! I substituted 1 to 1 flour for arrowroot. I have made this dish three times and each one turned out delicious! Ah! I hadn’t eaten brussels sprouts in awhile and was just thinking about them when I saw this recipe. My New Years resolution this year was to incorporate more veggies in both my husband’s and my diet. I sprinkled nutritional yeast on the sprouts that I had cooked with walnuts. Thanks for sharing! Brilliant recipe, is officially a staple in our household. Yum! This was a marvel! What if you don’t have a blender, can this still be made with the same success? So glad I didn’t!! I just tried this recipe. Tag @minimalistbaker on Instagram and hashtag it #minimalistbaker so we can see all the deliciousness! Can this be made without it or can something else substituted. Thanks so much for a great recipe. It did end up delicious, in spite of me. I just wanted to keep it GF. It’s my first time doing a completely vegan meal. I cook for two picky young boys and fussy husband, and the extra predicament is that I am going vegan again. Any ideas if it would change the flavor? I used store bought alfredo instead (because I’ve never made it from scratch and it’s a weeknight so I have no patience for messing up ? I will try it. Why wait til next week…im making this again tomorrow. Thanks! I made it according to the recipe with very minimal changes at the end. Xo. :). Well, except i m a garlic lover so added more powder n parm while blending. I made this, and it was my first time making an actual recipe. One of the most delicious recipes I’ve ever made. I had this tonight with sweet potato noodles! I added cashews this time when blending it just because I had some and came out delicious. My younger brother who is not vegan loved it and ate a huge bowl. This was a hit! Whoop! one of the best pastas I’ve made while vegan. Can’t wait to make this! It only requires 30 minutes and 9 ingredients. Gustavo Woltmann. I’m cooking this for the second time tonight to serve with lemon soused asparagus to my adult omnivore children. I plan to make this in the future. Will definitely make again! Tonight was my second time making this recipe and just like the first time I wasn’t disappointed. Quite honestly, this is the best that I’ve ever had. My eighteen year old refers to it as ‘vegan sorcery’ ?? This was great! Thanks for sharing! It was like a warm, cozy hug-the perfect comfort food. I can’t wait to try it exactly as written. This sauce is incredible and really satisfying. Do you have a favorite vegan cheese brand? I will try to serve it tonight with my friends. Thanks! I made this tonight! Made this tonight for my family (2 who can eat everything, 2 who can’t eat dairy/gluten) and adapted it to be gluten free. Hi Skye! It’s all plants!! We made this recently for friends – neither of which are dairy-free – and they devoured their whole plates. Soon!! :)<3, Thanks for this … have a Yam in the fridge waiting for a purpose so will amend This sauce is amazing! It’s one of my favorites! It’s pretty critical. Hi, This was my first attempt at a vegan Best alfredo sauce ever! I also added puréed butternut squash to the sauce for an extra nutritional (and colorful!) I threw in some corn (cuz I didn’t have any peas and wanted comfort food) and added a side of zucchini. If you didn’t know it was vegan, it tasted exactly like alfredo sauce (or better!) Yay! My family has been vegan for over a month now and Carbonara was always my 5yo’s favourite dish (I used to make the sauce myself, the traditional way using egg yolk and parmesan). Second time I’ve made this and just WOWS me every time. The penne pasta I used, had cauliflower, fava beans, and rice. Next time, would you mind leaving a rating with your review? I doubt that makes a huge difference though. Perfect! I tried making this this afternoon and it freaking rocks!! So creamy, rich and filling. Made this last night for myself and my husband. Will definitely make it again. And I agree- a clean plate from someone who doesn’t share your diet is just about the best complement you can get on a dish. Also have you heard of vegan meringue from the water of chickpeas? Dana, your recipes are THE best. I roasted veggies I had in the fridge instead of brussel sprouts. I have never taken the time to comment on a recipe and figured it was about time. He is lactose intolerant so he enjoyed the chance to have alfredo. My whole family enjoyed the dish, including the dogs and myself. The sauce should thicken, at which point you can lower the heat to low and simmer until pasta is cooked. Thanks so much for the lovely review! At first the sauce had a little off-taste to it. It was very simple to make and everything came together quickly.

Now is it the answer to getting my husband to eat Brussel Sprouts? Try this one next! However, because of not being vegan I did change it slightly so I will post what I did here in case someone else wants to do it as well. too much pasta?? Can we use almond meal instead of the flour? Next time would you mind adding a rating to your review? Creamy, saucy cashew alfredo in 30 minutes! Then I added colby jack cheese (about a cup). Let us know if you give it a try! I followed the recipe & like the idea (Brussel sprouts with cream sauce), but it seemed like the nutritional yeast overpowered all other flavors. Now that I look back at the recipe – I did use cornflour instead of cornstarch – could the be the reason? This recipe is one of my most favourite “cheese” sauce alternatives. Unreal. Thank you for making my new vegan lifestyle a delicious adventure! The balance of flavours is perfect and I wouldn’t tinker with it as some have done. It was so good and so simple. I will never stop making this recipe. It was very creamy, but my family didn’t care for it. Wouldn’t change a thing.. will definitely make this again! incredibly good with zucchini pasta! Any starch (like tapioca or potato flour) should work as well. Does it matter what type of white wine I use? I could not believe how indulgent and filling it was! My 13 yr old daughter who is suspicious of everything I serve loved it. Thank you so much for this recipe. Husband and I loved it!! Thanks so much for the lovely review! Simple methods, and big flavor! And yes, you should be able to use it in other dishes too! Yay! This was an outstanding recipe!
