vegan broccoli pasta alfredo

This is the second time I have made this dish and I really love it. I love the creaminess of the alfredo sauce and the fresh broccoli in this pasta. The last time I made this sauce, I wasn’t sure if it would turn out well again, but it was quite easy this time and I’m feeling more comfortable making non-dairy sauces.

I hate cooking with 3 or 4 different pots and pans for one dish, so I try to combine what I can when cooking. First, I boiled the (angel hair) pasta and chopped fresh broccoli together. While the pasta was boiling, I began with the base of the sauce.

Start by warming a couple Tbs of (earth balance) vegan buttery spread, then add 1-2 cloves of minced garlic. Sauté until light golden. I then added a few Tbs of whole wheat flour, stirring well to a creamy paste, slowly adding soy milk for the amount you would like to make. Stir well and add 1-2 Tbs of Tofutti cream cheese, parmesan (I use rice parmesan), salt & pepper to taste. I also add about a Tbs of ground flax seed. Continue to stir the sauce on low heat, while you drain the pasta & broccoli. Add pasta & broccoli and fold into the sauce. I also added a Tbs of chopped parsley because I love the lemony-peppery taste.

    This looks really delicious. I’m currently a vegetarian wannabe. I really get grossed out by meat and I try not to make it as often as possible. I am going to try this out! The only thing I’ll need to pick up from the store is the tofutti. Thanks for sharing!

    Thanks Kristan! That is great that you’re going to try this dish. I’m sure you’ll love the tofutti cream cheese also, I cannot tell the difference! I hope you enjoy the dish.
