Rich and Creamy Alfredo Sauce

.

This delicious vegan Alfredo Sauce is so quick and easy to make.  Just put the noodles on to boil and blend up the sauce while you are steaming the vegetables!  Now that is a meal in minutes, literally.  Add a salad and your whole dinner is done.  Good enough for company and simple enough for your own lunch.

.

The same toppings also work well with a large baked potato.

.

Or it can be as simple as fresh asparagus on thin whole-wheat spaghetti. This is definitely a 10-minute meal. Just add a salad. If you want some whole-wheat bread, a couple natural toppings are Tahini or sliced/mashed avocado.
