White Bean Dairyfree Alfredo Sauce

Living dairy-free has its benefits.  I feel healthier and lighter.  Living this way also gave me a chance too be creative and a purpose to experiment to replicate my favorite dishes.  Here is a recipe that I thought was decent, but I would still need to do a few changes to make this awesome.  I love my full fat cheesy cream sauce but it is full of fats.  This version is easy and lower in fats and full of fiber.

What you will need is a good old can of beans.  Drain and rinse these babies.

Add the beans, some vegan butter, garlic cloves, nutritional yeast and soy milk to a blender.  Earth balance makes a great vegan butter that you can use to bake and cook.

Blend these ingredients until smooth.  Pour into a sauce pan and cook until it bubbles.  That’s it. You are done! You can also add various ingredients to make this dish awesome. I added shrimps to my sauce.  I found that this sauce was pretty nice. It did taste like beans and got a little gritty after you let the pasta sit with the sauce. It wasn’t as creamy as regular alfredo and wasn’t as silky as a cauliflower sauce but it was really simple and different.
