The Vegan Alfredo King, But Who is He?

Andres is an animal rights activist who has been vegan for over two years. His life is motivated by the desire to find more compassion for all living beings.ย  He has a passion for speaking up for animals and the voiceless. Andres believes this earth belongs to the animals, and they need to be protected, along with the planet. When he came out as a vegan, a lot of his friends were skeptical and they always said he would give it up, unable to deal with the โ€œstruggleโ€ of cooking vegan.ย  Boy, they were WRONG! Andres has never felt more creative in the kitchen after going vegan. He has replaced 25ย  animal โ€˜ingredientsโ€™ with over 500 REAL FOODS – which is what we should be eating because our bodies depend on the nutrients from plant foods, the fuel that keeps us going. And Andres has learned along the way that there are so many ways to make his favorite dishes, it’s not only one way anymore, as he was taught.

This dish looks so tasty, and oh so creamy with the artichoke sauce.ย  Vegan Alfredo never tasted so good.ย  I am providing the recipe for you below so you can try this dish for yourself at home.ย  But first, let’s take a look at how Andres plate turned out.ย  I can tell you it has made my mouth water and my tummy crave some creamy alfredo right now!

  • - After your pasta is done and you have reserved some pasta water, add it to your food processor and now you can start blitzing everything together.
  • - You will get a creamy alfredo sauce that you can mix into your pasta.
  • - Garnish with the walnuts, red bell pepper, and even some paprika and oregano on top. Enjoy!
