Blogger shares simple hack to make creamy vegan Alfredo sauce
If you've ever hoped to recreate a creamy fettuccini
Alfredo without the butter or cheese, you're in luck.
Lifestyle blogger and mom Ereka Vetrini shared
her inventive vegan take on the classic recipe
on TikTok and it looks absolutely to die for.
To start, Vetrini wraps two entire
bulbs of garlic in tin foil and roasts them
at 400 degrees for 40 minutes.
After the garlic bulbs have become
nice and softened, Vetrini removes them
from the oven and squeezes out the contents
in the most satisfying fashion.
She then adds olive oil,
salt, red pepper flakes and
lemon juice and mixes the
creamy sauce with a whisk.
After boiling her pasta and tossing it in
the garlic concoction, Vetrini tops it all with
toasted breadcrumbs and fresh parsley.
"It tastes like there's butter and cheese in
here," she says. "Whoever Alfredo is, he's pissed".
While the expert cook never explicitly designates the
recipe as vegan, it is easy to make it vegan-friendly
by using an egg-free pasta and vegan breadcrumbs.
Vetrini consistently shares fun and inventive food
recipes with her over 138,000 followers on TikTok.
