Vegan Fettuccine Alfredo

Say hello to the creamiest Fettuccine Alfredo recipe of all time! Made with 100% plant-based ingredients, it has an incredible flavor that will leave your family and friends pleasantly surprised at just how good it is.


– 1 C of raw unsalted almonds – 3 C plus 2 tablespoons water divided – 1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil – 1 medium yellow onion diced – 5 large cloves garlic minced – 4 C low-sodium vegetable broth or the equivalent amount of vegetable bouillon and water – 16 oz of fettuccine – 4 tsp cornstarch – 1 tbsp salt only if using low-sodium broth – 1 tsp ground black pepper – Freshly cracked black pepper to taste for garnish – ½ C finely chopped fresh parsley for garnish

Using a high­powered blender, blend the almonds and 3 cups of water until a creamy milk forms. Over a large bowl, pour the liquid through a nut milk bag to strain out the pulp, and gently massage the bag until all the milk has passed through and only a thick crumbly clump of almond pulp remains. Set aside the silky­smooth almond cream and discard the pulp (or save it to use in another recipe).

Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and sauté for 2 to 4 minutes, until soft and fragrant. Add the vegetable broth and homemade almond milk, increase the heat to medium ­high, and bring to a boil.

Add the fettuccine to the pot and cook uncovered for the amount of time suggested on the package or until the noodles are cooked and tender. This will take 9 to 12 minutes but can vary depending on the type of pasta you use. Stir the pasta frequently to prevent it from clumping and sticking to the bottom of the pan.

While the pasta is cooking, mix the cornstarch and 2 tablespoons of water in a small bowl until the cornstarch dissolves.

Two minutes before the pasta is done, add the cornstarch and water mixture, salt, and ground black pepper to the pot. Cook for 2 to 5 minutes, until the sauce starts to thicken.

Turn the heat off and allow the pasta and sauce to rest on the stove for 5 minutes to thicken. If the sauce is still very liquid, turn the heat on while mixing the pasta and sauce for another 1 to 2 minutes—but keep in mind that the sauce will continue to thicken with time. Plate the pasta and garnish with the cracked black pepper and parsley.
