Once upon a snowy day in New Hampshire, I had a cooking lesson scheduled at a clients house, but the storm took her power out. Since the grocery stores were closed, the roads were slick, and the people (us) wanted warmth and comfort, I peeked in the fridge to see what I could throw together. Once I saw a few ingredients, I knew what I was going to make. Fresh pasta + mushrooms + cauliflower... ALFREDO!!
Yes, this rich, creamy, flavorful Alfredo sauce is made from plants! No butter, no cream, no cheese.
Which actually reminds me - my college roommate claimed to make the best Alfredo, so naturally, we asked him to make it for us. He came home with a couple bags of cheese, boxes of cream cheese, heavy cream, several sticks of butter... that's what Alfredo is made of?!?
So, the fact that you can use just plants (and ZERO cholesterol) to make a creamy dreamy pasta sauce is... life-changing.
