Dairy Free Alfredo Sauce

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by aerobicon

This is a pretty simple recipe. It's a pretty small batch, so you may want to double it. The recipe needs no dairy-free cheese, but feel free to add some or sprinkle on top.

So, I have a dairy allergy, and thus am always looking for substitute foods. Thank you for this attempt, but you have to fix a few things. The nutritional yeast should be 3 tsp not 3 tbsp (it would be solid powder if you did tablespoons). Should have a little bit more soy milk (and make sure you don't use vanilla soy milk, gives it a weird flavor). I highly suggest pairing this with sausage (hot Italian) to cover up any differences you may have if you have had Alfredo (with milk) before. We added soy Parmesan cheese and onion to give this more flavor.
