I have to take back my former review and put a new rating on this recipe. I must have done something wrong the first time I made this (I think the soy sauce I used at the time was what ruined it), because I gave it another shot and have made it many, many times after that! It's so great! One of my favorite alfredo sauces for sure.

Quite good. Did not taste anything like regular alfredo (of which I am not especially fond) I subbed pureed tofu and water for soymilk, and deleted cashews since I had none. Left all else basically the same. May have over reached on the nutrioinal yeast though, yet I love it so was only a plus. Great recipe!! (Made this because my kids dislike red sauce. Sauteed spinach and vegetables, and served it over spaghetti. My nine year old loved it.)

Mmmm fantastic! This is a definite keeper. Working with what I had on hand I had to make a few subs-- namely walnuts for cashews and sunflower oil instead of Earth Balance. I used 1/3 cup nooch since the other reviews said it needed it, and the recommended amoutns of tahini, soy sauce, and plain soymilk. Due to personal preference I subbed mustard power for Dijon mustard, and just sprinkled in some paprika without measuring it. My blender's a bit wonky so I just ground the walnuts up in my mini food chopper first before tossing everyhting in the blender. I ate this with butternut squash ravioli, they were great together! Thanks for sharing!

This was good, and I liked that it was vegan but free of soy. I made it as directed, except that I subbed homemade almond butter for the tahini. Like SPrins, I found that it came out rather thin, so I added some extra cashews and nutritional yeast. The flavor of the smoked paprika was a little bit overpowering (but that might be because my mother-in-law gave me some really high quality stuff from a local spice shop). Nonetheless, it was a satisfying sauce on some gluten-free spaghetti and broccoli. Recipenapped for Veg*an Swap, March 2010

This turned out really tasty! My husband was a bit reluctant, but he was impressed! The only change I will make next time is to try to thicken it up a bit with cornstarch. It was really soupy, but the flavor is great! Thanks so much for sharing! :O)
