Before our diet change, Dave hated creamy things. Especially creamy sauces, anything involving mayonnaise, as well as melted cheese. So in some ways, eating vegan works out well for him.
ME, on the other hand… I looooooove creamy things. I used to be a big fan of alfredo’s, mac and cheese, and had no qualm with mayonnaise. Giving up dairy was a little sad for me : ( But! I would never choose to go back. It really has made a huge difference in my life.
So in an effort to try something new for Dave and to appease my cravings, I came up with an AMMMMMAZZZZING alfredo alternative that is both light and absolutely full of flavor!
I very often hear that people don’t like the taste of nutritional yeast, so I opted to leave it out. I stuck with a simple tablespoon of lemon juice for this one. I really wanted to make this sauce as easy as possible- no excessive chopping of garlic (after 4 bulbs I’m usually spent), no soaking cashews and needing a high-speed blender, and no crazy unusual ingredients. Just simple stuff that most everybody can find.
