    Kree's Note:

    I've been craving alfredo sauce lately, and this is the best non-dairy substitute I've found! Don't tell your family it contains tofu, I bet they'll never guess! The recipe is from www.veganchef.com. You can reduce the soy parmesan to make it healthier, although I wouldn't go below 1/2 cup because it does add a lot of the flavor.

      A really tasty and versatile sauce that could be used with whatever pastas and vegetables you fancied using it with! I used firm silken tofu, soy milk, 1/2 onion minced and 2 cloves garlic minced (rather than the onion and garlic powders, but these would be a great option if time was short), less than a 1/4 teaspoon of salt (taste preference) and I omitted the cayenne pepper (taste preference) and I added a grinding of black pepper. I couldn’t track down vegan parmesan, so I used 3/4 cup of ordinary parmesan. Easy to follow instructions, and there are so few steps! In step two, I added a cup of finely sliced button mushrooms, and kept the sauce over the heat, while stirring, for a good 5 minutes until I was satisfied that the mushrooms (and minced onion and garlic) were cooked, then I added a packet of thoroughly thawed and squeeze-dried spinach. After adding the parmesan, I folded my sauce through some angel hair pasta. Thank you for sharing this recipe, Kree! I just LOVED it, and will be playing around with it and using it heaps more in the future. Next time, I’ll also be thinking seriously about what herbs I could add! Probably thyme and oregano!

      This is the first time I ever cook with tofu and non-dairy... I had a friend who is luctos and was amazed by this recipe.. I grilled some chicken and added to it and it was out of this world. Thank you

      The flavor was great, but the sauce was a little thin. However, my meat-loving DH ate it happily. I think next time I make it, I am going to use a less soy milk--like only 1 to 1.5 cups.
