Easy Homemade Tofu Alfredo Sauce

Easy Homemade Tofu Alfredo Sauce

Looking through old pictures today made me really miss traveling! The last time I went abroad was in September. After a Scandinavian cruise, a friend and I went to Rome to stay with another friend that was studying abroad there. It was glorious.

We drank wine.

We ate gnocchi.

We ate entire pizzas by ourselves (well, I did.)

We ate peanut butter and Nutella sandwiches. (Best sandwich… ever.)

We hung out with the Pope.

 

We ate gelato twice a day.

We snuck a picture of the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel.

 

One thing we did not do is eat pasta.

I know, I know. I’m a bad Italian. But honestly… I’ve never been a huge pasta fan! When I had a random craving for pasta recently, I tried to satiate my craving with this bag I found at Whole Foods.

 

The ‘pasta’ was pretty gummy and weird, but the sauce was pretty delicious!

Tofu Alfredo Sauce

Ingredients:

  • 1 block silken tofu (don’t worry about pressing it)
  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 clove garlic
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Almond milk to thin, if necessary

Directions:

Process all ingredients in a food processor. It should make enough for a bag of pasta, so I had some leftovers.

 

I used to eat this sauce constantly a few years ago when I went vegan for the first time. Even though I’m not vegan anymore, I still love it! Eating it makes me very nostalgic for that time in my life

 

I topped it with capers. The capers made up for the weird texture of the pasta!

I’ll take spaghetti squash over regular spaghetti any day.

This was my dinner a few nights ago- half of a spaghetti squash mixed with hummus and topped with spinach, eggplant, caramelized onions, and tofu.

 

So filling!

 

Now if only I could find something I liked more than gelato…

Do you like Italian food? Pizza is a major food group in my diet… so yes!
