SO HOW'D IT GO?

***UPDATE***

Liquefying the onion and garlic makes for a more authentic flavor.

For a thinner texture use as the plain unsweetened nondairy milk Silk Pure Almond Unsweetened All Natural Almondmilk instead of So Delicious Coconut Milk Beverage Unsweetened.

This was delicious!!!!!! I have been craving alfredo sauce for the longest time and now I have it  :>

I made a few minor adjustments...I only used 1/4 cups margarine (it was plenty) and used whole wheat flour for thickener. I also only used 1 cup of nondairy milk (I like my sauces thick). It was divine.

Thank you for this recipe!!  I'll admit that I was skeptical at first bc since I've been vegan, I've yet to find a Vegan Alfredo Sauce that taste good.  I was very pleased, this sauce was absolutely delicious!!  :)>>>

The few changes I made were:  I used Whole Wheat Flour bc that was what I had on hand.  I used powdered onion and powered garlic too bc I didn't have any fresh to mince.  I also sprinkled in some Paprika and some Parmesan Flavored Cheese.  Again, thank you!!  This is a keeper!!
