Vegan Sauces: Simple Vegan Alfredo Sauce


Vegan Sauces: Simple Vegan Alfredo Sauce
Backpacks and pencils are showcased once again. You may very well catch a glimpse of a pumpkin or a black cat at this time as well. August is only half over, but in the back of many of our minds is the nagging or nostalgic thought of Autumn.

I try not to rush the passing of these sweet warm days in flip-flops, yet I can’t help but pull my cookbooks out and think about all of the wonderful things I will be creating in the kitchen.

This is an oldie but goodie that I put on all kinds of things; roasted veggies, cauliflower rice, zucchini noodles, and I even dip plantain chips in it. I can whip it up in moments, and it turns the simplest foods divinely satisfying.
