Default Re: Dairy Substitutes in Recipes

SOY and DAIRY free alfredo and ricotta

the "recipes" may not be exactly accurate as I have been making these so long I never measure any more

For "alfredo" sauce

soak raw cashews is water for a few hours- I usually did about 3/4 cup in a pyrex cup with enough water to cover.

cook pasta but reserve water

drain cashews

process together, cashews, 1 cup pasta water, 2-3 TB nutritional yeast, garlic (depends how garlicy you like it) a few TB Earth Balance (they make soy free!) Mix until smooth and thick- add more water to get the consistency you like


soak 3/4 c raw pine nuts overnight in a pyrex (1) cup with water to the top.

in morning process the nuts, water, 1 garlic clove (more if you like), 2 TB nutritional yeast, 1 tsp salt until pasty a a ricotta consistency. Use in lasagna or baked ziti!
