Easy White Wine Alfredo Sauce

Creamy White Pasta Sauce

Vegan alfredo sauce is always a good idea. This recipe goes one step further as it’s made with a splash of dry white wine and some lemon juice.

Vegan White Wine Alfredo

This white wine sauce is 100% vegan and so EASY to make. Soaked cashews give the sauce a creamy texture AND if you’re anything like me, you never have cashews soaking beforehand so you use THIS quick soaked cashew method instead. ?

Easy White Wine Alfredo Sauce

Cook onions and garlic in a skillet with vegetable broth and some dry white wine to soften them up. Then, add all the ingredients to a food processor and blend away. This recipe makes the perfect creamy white pasta sauce. This sauce is so yummy – we used it in our pasta with roasted asparagus and grape tomatoes dish.

Creamy. Delicious. Cheesy. Flavor-packed.

Creamy Vegan Alfredo Sauce with a hint of White Wine and Lemon

Course: Sauce
  • 1/2 cup soaked cashews
  • 1 cup vegetable broth
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine (ex: pinot grigio, chardonnay...)
  • 1 cup yellow onion diced
  • 4 cloves fresh garlic minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  1. If you don't have pre-soaked cashews, use the quick method by placing the cashews in a small pot, covering with water and bringing that to a boil. Once boiling, remove from heat and cover for 15 minutes, until cashews are soft. Drain when done.

  2. Meanwhile, heat a skillet on medium heat. Add your diced onions and sauté until slightly soft, about 3 minutes. Add garlic and sauté until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add 1/4 cup white wine and sauté until all the wine has evaporated, about 5 minutes.

  3. Then, in your food processor or blender, add vegetable broth, soaked cashews, lemon juice, nutritional yeast, salt, pepper, and your garlic and onion sauté. Blend on high for 2 minutes or until creamy.

    This looks great. I have a lot of almond meal I can use. Also what’s the replacement if you’re not using wine?

      Hi Shilpa,

      You can skip the wine altogether and it will come out just fine!
