We’re getting to that point in the year where winter seems like it’s dragging on. At least where I live, it feels like winter lasts until April. Well, ok it starts to warm up a bit in March.

February is what I like to think of as that “final stretch.” You can see the light (or in this case the sun) at the end of the tunnel, but we’re not quite there yet!

It’s during these “final stretch” days that I like to indulge in some more carb-loaded cozy warming foods…like this vegan truffle alfredo.

One thing I love about this dish is it’s so simple to make.

I’m serious you guys…

The sauce is easier to make than a traditional alfredo sauce and is all done in the blender.

I’ve been a sucker for blender recipes lately. (like this blender chocolate quinoa cake) Using a high-speed blender (like this one)to make recipes is like the ultimate cooking hack! Not to mention there’s way less clean up involved.

This vegan truffle alfredo uses cashews for the base of the sauce, so it still has that really rich creamy texture that we all want from an alfredo. I also added some truffle oil to the sauce just to make it something a little extra special. (oh, and also because it tastes ah-mazing)

This vegan truffle alfredo is:

  • High in healthy fats
  • Loaded with fiber
  • High in protein
  • Dairy-free, gluten-free, whole30 approved (pretty much suited for most diets)

I’ve served this with gluten-free fettuccini pasta, but feel free to use any type of pasta you love! You can even get a little crazy and add some peas or asparagus to your pasta dish!
