This pasta tastes so creamy delicious. I love making a big batch for my whole family. Keep scrolling for this Vegan Baked Cashew Alfredo Pasta Recipe.
Cashews are the best plant based ingredient for sauces. These healthy nuts only need about 4 hours of soaking time. This is shorter than most other nuts. They make great vegan pasta sauces.
This is because they are more porous than others. Cashews absorb liquid quickly making them easy to blend. Cashews are a main ingredient in this baked vegan Alfredo sauce and similar vegan recipes.
These cashew nuts are rich in protein, fiber, and calcium. Also vitamin E, C, and K. They are also abundant in various B vitamins. No wonder they are used for vegan cheese sauces!
Other ingredients include vegan butter, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, and black pepper. You also need water and pasta noodles of your choice.
Instructions are easy for this dairy free pasta recipe. Start by Soaking cashews for a Minimum of 4 hours. Then Drain cashews from water in a medium mixing bowl. Keep the cashew water!
Blend cashews alone first then add butter. Add cashew water back in and blend. Next Add all dry ingredients and blend until smooth. Then cook pasta noodles of your choice.
You need to Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Put pasta in a baking pan and smother with cashew sauce. Lastly bake for 25 minutes! I like to sprinkle to top with more nutritional yeast.
