Alfredo Adoration

Hello my almond butter loving friends. If you're new to HEAB, you may like to subscribe to my RSS feed or receive my posts via email. Thanks for reading!

I grew up on Fettucine Alfredo and Spaghetti Carbonara, and for some odd reason, did not like marinara sauce at all.  My pasta had to be covered in cream and lots of it.  These days, I love my Marinutta, but sometimes, I crave that creamy dreamy goodness.  Please allow me to share with you my quest for the perfect non-dairy Alfredo Sauce…

Attempt #1

Where's the sauce?

After discovering soy-free Earth Balance, I immediately whipped up a batch of Chocolate Covered Katie’s Three-Ingredient Alfredo Sauce and served it over steamed veggies with roasted onions. Katie’s sauce always looks rich and creamy, but mine turned out a bit too thin.  I want to try making it again because I did love the taste.

Attempt #2

MimicCream - please come to Nashville!

MimicCream - please come to Nashville!

A couple of weeks ago, I used my MimicCream samples to make the above Alfredo Sauce.  The recipe was easy as well as delicious, but alas, I cannot find MimicCream in Nashville.  It’s available online, but I already spend so much money on groceries, that I have outlawed online food purchases.  Hey Artisana & Futters Nut Butter people, that includes you. Please start selling your products at the Whole Foods in Nashville. Thank you.

Attempt #3

I’ve had Gena’s Alfredo Sauce bookmarked forever, and why I just now tried it, I’m not sure.  Thank you Gena!  I’ve been pouring this sauce on everything, and I always top it with Marissa’s Vegan Italian Spice Parm.  Please try this combo!
