Dairy free alfredo sauce is just as decadent as the high cholesterol, saturated fat alternative. Eating whole food plant-based is not a sacrifice–it’s a matter of education. A good recipe makes all the difference.
Here’s my favorite for classic alfredo sauce, never mind that it’s dairy free and full of fiber and nutrients. If you are having trouble finding some of the ingredients, check my Amazon shopping list. If you find that tahini is too expensive, you can order raw hulled sesame seeds, store in your freezer and substitute the real thing for store-bought (which often contains added oil).
Serve dairy free alfredo sauce over spaghetti squash, pasta, steamed greens or whatever you like.

Directions for dairy free alfredo sauce
Chop all vegetables and assemble other ingredients so everything is at your fingertips.
In a medium size pot, sauté onion, mushroom and garlic with 3 Tbsp. of water, stirring frequently. Add extra water if necessary to avoid sticking.
Add cauliflower, mushrooms, radishes, lemon juice, onion powder, garlic granules, ½ cup water and the nondairy milk to the pot. Bring to a boil over high heat. Cover and simmer at medium-low heat for 15 minutes.
Transfer the contents of the pot and add the remaining ingredients to a blender. Blend until super creamy and smooth, about two full minutes.
