Alkaline Recipe #223: Vegan Alfredo Pasta Sauce

alkaline recipe: alfredo sauce

Oh this is such a new, big hit in our house! Creamy, filling, alkaline, fat-rich and best of all – it takes just minutes to prepare and requires only a few simple ingredients.

But then, that’s the motto for all my recipes – simple, quick, everyday ingredients and delicious of course.

One of my key strategies to make the alkaline diet as easy and effortless as possible for you is delicious recipes that can be used in a bunch of different dishes, and to make any plain and simple veggie dish (be it roast veggies, steamed veggies, grilled veggies, a salad and so on) interesting and so much more filling. And of course, if used on a gluten-free pasta (I LOVE this brand right now) – it’s the perfect alfredo sauce!

This is most definitely a new fave.

It’s fat rich, a great source of vitamin C, K, B6 and B2 from the cauliflower; the powerful antibiotic power of oregano; and the anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer power of the garlic.

Enjoy 🙂

Alkaline Recipe: Vegan Alfredo Pasta Sauce

Serves 6 Dishes


1 medium cauliflower
1tbsp avocado oil
1tbsp coconut oil (or just use 2tbsp coconut oil)
1/4 cup cashews
3 cloves garlic
2 teaspoons pine nuts
2.5 cups almond milk
1 yeast-free, MSG-free vegetable stock cube
A small handful of oregano & basil (fresh) or 1/2 tsp if dried.
Himalayan salt & black pepper to taste
Juice of 1/2 lemon


1. Start by getting the cashews soaking in warm water, this will make them easier to blend. If you can, start this process a couple of hours before you want to cook the dish, but if not then, just for as long as possible with the time you have.

2. Next, roughly chop the cauliflower, mince the garlic and add to a pan with the oil and pine nuts. Cook for 2-3 minutes, and then add the almond milk and the stock cube. Bring the pot to a simmer.

3. Now drain the cashews, give them a rinse and add to the pan too. Simmer everything together for 6-8 minutes.

4. Finally, put everything in a high-speed blender and add the lemon juice, herbs, salt & pepper and once it’s smooth you’re ready to go!

You can use this with gluten-free pasta, zucchini ‘zoodles’ or any other veggie dish or salad. It’s amazing!

    Hi Ross
    I missed the inflammation group email a few days ago but am very interested and not sure what to do for the best. I have m.e. and a recent flare up and i have learned from some of the outstanding alternative medicine specialists who are big advocates for nutrition such as Dr Sarah Myhill and Dr Teti Wahls that the best way to get on the road to recovery is by keto, so i was wondering if there is a way to do keto but still keep things alkaline ?

    I love the whole principle of alkaline living .. I’ve been trying to follow a lot of your ideas and made some of the soups and am cooking with ginger garlic and tumeric all the time. I’ve been making chia pots too but still struggling with my protein and iron despite having at least 1 head of broccoli or a whole bag of spinach everyday so any tips would be great.
    Thanks for such a brilliant job
    Kindest regards

    Hi Ross,
    I’m slowly weaning myself off of standard fare and am enjoying your great alkaline recipes.
    Where can I get yeast-free veg stock cubes.
    Keep up the great work.
    Cheers Pauline

    This sounds more like a “pesto” sauce than an “alfredo” sauce, but no matter, it sounds delicious and can’t wait to try it!

    What are zucchini zoodles?

    Will cooking destroy the “good” from alkaline recipes, or will it still be beneficial to health, just less so?

    This sounds amazing, but is there a way to modify this without the nuts?

      You can leave out the cashews and add a little more cauliflower – still works.
