There are plenty of vegan alfredo sauce recipes out there, but the soy factor has always put me off making it given I’m not big on imitation milk or cheese. So what makes this one special? It’s a vegan alfredo sauce that’s soy-free, oil-free, gluten-free and it has a healthy dose of protein, is no-cook and only takes five minutes to make.
Pasta bake cake was my attempt at turning a simple bowl of pasta marinara into something a little more exciting. It needed a cheesy element, but trying not to overdo the soy, I pulled out my trusted recipe for cashew cheese – a recipe I first made about six years ago and tastes like a hybrid of runny cheese and what I imagine queso dip to taste like.
You can add vegetables like spinach or kale to the pasta before you bake it, and you can make your own marinara sauce.
I’m going to call it, this is the best vegan pesto around. It is also extremely simple and can be pulled together in the shortest amount of time. You know how that saying goes, hey presto, it’s pesto – well, it’s true.
