Rich and Creamy Lowfat Vegan Alfredo

What you need: 

1 (12 ounce) package lowfat silken tofu
3 tablespoons vegan butter-flavored powder
1/4 cup vegan parmesan
2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
veggie broth, as needed
salt and pepper, to taste
1 cup cooked pasta, divided, to serve

What you do: 

1. Blend all sauce ingredients, adding enough broth to make a smooth and creamy consistency.
2. Heat gently. Serve over pasta.
Variations:
Spinach Alfredo-Add one 10 ounce package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained, after blending. Adding it before blending makes it look rather disgusting, like green slime. It still tastes good if you can get past the color.
Tomato Alfredo-Substitute low-sodium vegatable juice blend for broth, and add tomato paste to taste. My vitamin-hating, junk-food-loving son pronounced this a keeper.

Preparation Time: 
5 mins
Cooking Time: 
Servings: 
4

SO HOW'D IT GO?

YUM.  I'm not a vegan, so I used regular parmesan and margarine and omitted the yeast flakes.  This so good on pasta, and even better on raw veggies!

This was amazing!! I added garlic, sundried tomatoes and grilled portabello mushrooms, sliced them and put them on top.

Tip: pay attention to the "heat slowly" tip, I heated mine a little too fast and it curdled...but it still tasted amazing.

Thanks!!!

Definitely heed the warning to "heat gently." I heated a little too un-gently and turned my creamy sauce into a clumpy sauce. Still tasted OK though.

Don't even worry about the butter powder.  Since you have to heat it, good ole earth Balance works great.  I added some garlic and a little onion powder since I seem to add this to everything.  Good for Tofu-phobes!

This was really good.  I didn't have butter flavored sprinkles, so just used Earth Balance.  Also was out of veg broth, so used soy milk instead.  Next time I may up the NY just a bit to give it a more cheesy flavor, but this was seriously a great alfredo that could fool most people.  I'll definitely be making it again!

I tried this alfredo and was pleased, but for some reason I felt that something was missing. It was creamy and cheezy but something was off. I added garlic to the sauce and when I was about to mix the sauce with the pasta, I also tossed in some steamed asparagus. It was really yummy with the asparagus, but like I said I felt some other seasoning was missing.

Another VegWeb favorite.  I used non-dairy creamer instead of the veggie broth and threw in a garlic clove and some EB.  I served this sauce with bowties, sauteed onions, and some ever so gently wilted spinach.
