I mentioned about a week ago that I finally perfected my dairy free alfredo sauce recipe, and a lot of you requested a recipe, so here it is.
[I apologize for phone pics, but I didn't get a chance to make it when I could use my good camera]
3 cups So Delicious unsweetened coconut milk
2 TBS nutritional yeast
2-3 TBS Earth Balance soy free butter substitute
2 TBS flour [I use King Arthur unbleached all-purpose]
salt and pepper to taste
Step 1: whisk together 1 cup coconut milk and 2 TBS nutritional yeast …
… until it is smooth.
Step 2: melt 2-3 TBS of Earth Balance butter in a pan over medium heat
Step 3: once the butter is melted, whisk in 2 TBS flour to make a roux
Step 4: once you have a thick, creamy roux, whisk in your milk/nutritional yeast mixture …
… as it continues to thicken, turn heat down and add the remainder of the milk + let it simmer until you reach your desired consistency.
I add this to pasta with chicken and broccoli or tuna and peas … the kids LOVE it!
I can get all of these ingredients at our local Publix, but I buy the nutritional yeast by the pound at Whole Foods because it’s cheaper that way.
