Godfather-Approved Easy, Cheesy Broccoli Alfredo

Thursday, February 24, 2011

I'm pretty sure that the creamy alfredo sauce I concocted last night in my kitchen laboratory was so good even the Godfather himself would approve! And seriously folks, this is easier than mixing together that chalky mac n cheese powder with cold butter that we all grew up learning to love. Yes, it really is that simple!

Godfather-Approved Easy, Cheesy Broccoli Alfredo

1/4 c. Earth Balance or your favorite vegan butter
1/2 c. Tofutti Vegan Chive Cream Cheese
1-1/2 tsp. Garlic Powder
2/3 c. vegan milk (I use Rice)
1/2 c. Nutritional Yeast

While the noodles of your choice are cooking, melt the butter in a small saucepan on low heat. Once melted, whisk in the cream cheese until it is melted as well. Whisk in the garlic powder and milk and when everything is nicely combined, whisk in the nutritional yeast, whisking until it's combined well and thickening up a bit.

Steam up some of your favorite veggies (I used broccoli), drain your pasta (I use rice fettuccini) and toss it all together for a meal you'll want to write your Italian Grandmother about...even if, like me...you don't even have an Italian grandmother! Simple, delicious, and I promise, this will become a comfort food staple!

I wonder if the Galaxy cream cheese would work for this?

ABSOLUTELY!!! I made this last week using Galaxy cream cheese instead of Tofutti and it was perfect! I actually prefer Galaxy brand, but it didn't exist when I first came up with this recipe! Enjoy it!
