Consider this your go-to Alfredo sauce. Sure it’s vegan, but it’s irresistibly creamy, rich, and finger-lickin’ delicious. The base is avocado, and with the addition of garlic, lemon, and basil to cut the avocado-y taste, you have yourself an Alfredo sauce that fits the bill for a satisfying pasta dish. This recipe also takes minutes to prepare. Can’t beat that. And honestly, you don’t even need the pasta…
