Vegan Alfredo? You betcha!!!

Be Saucy With My 'Vegan Herbed Tofu Alfredo Sauce' Recipe

What you will need:

1 14oz container of firm tofu
4 tbsp Earth Balance (or any vegan buttery spread)
2 tsp dried Italian Seasoning
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 Edward & Sons Low Sodium Veggie Bouillon cube       dissolved in
1/2 cup hot water
1/2 cup nutritional yeast flakes
salt and pepper to taste (optional)

What to do:

Blend all ingredients thoroughly in your blender. Pour into a medium sized saucepan. Heat on low-medium heat until thoroughly warmed, stirring frequently. Season with sea salt and pepper to taste, if you wish to.

Serving Suggestions:

-Serve over pasta like fettuccine or any of your favorite pastas

-Serve over baked potatoes or over any vegetables just like you would with cheese sauce

-Use as a white sauce on pizza or with red sauce as "cheese dollops" on veggie pizza!

Recipe Tips: 

-Cube up tofu prior to placing in blender, that will make it easier to blend. 

-Using firm tofu keeps this sauce nice and thick avoiding having to add any thickening agents, such as corn starch or flour.

-You can make this recipe in advance and store in the fridge in an airtight container after blending. Just heat over the stove in a saucepan when you are ready to use it.
