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, including her jazzed-up take on a classic PB&J and her wildly decadent version of an eggplant parm hero.
