If you have alfredo lovers in your household but would like a healthier option, try this Cashew Alfredo Sauce made with Glenda’s Farmhouse cashews.



    1. In hot water, soak the Glenda’s Farmhouse cashews for 20 minutes.
    2. Drain the cashews and place in a high-speed blender.
    3. With the cashews, add the arrowroot starch, yeast, garlic, salt, parmesan, and 1 cup of almond milk.
    4. Blend to smooth, scraping sides. You’ll taste and adjust as you like - garlic for zing, yeast or parmesan for cheesiness, salt for saltiness, and more almond milk to thin as needed.
    5. At this stage, you can add pasta to cook with sauce.
    6. Pour the mixture into a skillet and cook on medium-low heat for about 5 minutes. Stir frequently to avoid scalding.
    7. The sauce will thicken and bubble as it cooks.
    8. Add almond milk as needed (about ½ cup).
    9. Serve with veggie noodles or pasta of your choice. Top with parmesan and roasted tomatoes.


  • Tapioca starch or cornstarch can substitute for arrowroot.
  • Store in the fridge for 3-4 days or freezer for up to 1 month.
  • Swap out vegan parmesan in a blender for onion.
  • Top with mushrooms, tomatoes, garlic, and chili pepper for additional flavor.
  • Can also serve over steamed rice and vegetables.
  • A touch of basil in the blender will add a pesto flavor.
  • To keep it vegan with an homage to tradition, pair with vegan Italian sausage or vegan chicken.
