Vegan Alfredo Zucchini Pasta

Vegan Alfredo Zucchini Pasta.  I know I have said on more than one occasion how much I love my spiralizer.

I love being about to make low carb versions of pasta dishes.  My kids also love their carrot ribbons.  Something about the shape of a veggie makes it more appealing?

At least with my kiddos.  I have already come up with my Avocado Pesto Zucchini Pasta and this Alfredo Zucchini Pasta is my latest creation.

This is not only low carb, but gluten free, dairy free and vegan as well!

The sauce contains a secret ingredient that gives it a creamy texture.  I was amazed at how good it tasted!

An easy, low carb meal you will love!


    For the pasta

    • 2 zucchinis (ends removed) cut in spirals

    For the sauce

    • 1 head of cauliflower
    • 1 cup almond milk
    • 3 cloves garlic minced (We like it strong. If you don't, use 2 cloves)
    • 3 T nutritional yeast
    • 2 T onion diced
    • 1 T lemon juice
    • salt to taste


    1. Cut the cauliflower into florets and steam until soft.
    2. Using a spiralizer, madoline or peeler, cut the zucchini into ribbons.
    3. Once the cauliflower is soft, using a food processor or blender , blend it and the remaining ingredients until smooth.
    4. Pour over the zucchini pasta and serve immediately.
    5. If you plan on eating it later, keep the zucchini and sauce separate until you are ready to serve.


    Recipe Notes

    The recipe for the sauce makes more than you need for the pasta. You can either add an extra zucchini, or just save the extra sauce for later use. The sauce can be frozen as well. Nutritional yeast is very different than bread yeast. It adds a nutty and cheesy flavor. Nutritional yeast is also a great source of fiber and B vitamins. If you eat cheese, feel free to sub the nutritional yeast for cheese instead.

        1. Planning to make this for dinner today. I'm not a fan of uncooked zucchini, any tips on how to cook if I want to try that? Put it in the strainer and pour cooked cauliflower and water over it? Saute? Also, planning to add my favorite, cannellini beans for some protein.
          1. I poured the cooked sauce over mine. That should work. You can also try boiling the noodles for a minute or two. I hope you enjoy the recipe. :)
      1. When I make zucchini "pasta", I saute' the spiralized zucchini over medium-high heat for about 90 seconds, stirring the whole time. The heats it up and softens it a bit, but it doesn't shrink.
      1. You can get it online at Amazon & here is a website that uses the spiralizer in all her dishes!!! They are awesome!
    1. This was fantastic. I used summer squash instead of zucchini. I also added a lot more nutritional yeast, and slightly more lemon juice. Topped with tons of black pepper. I'm seriously crying that I didn't make more noodles. Will eat this again tomorrow! So cheap and simple!!!!!
    2. I used two large cloves of garlic and it was so garlicky it burned my mouth, but it was a great recipe that I'll be making again and again! ...with less garlic of course! Thanks!
    3. I can't have yeast, can I make the sauce without yeast? Or is there something else I need to use in place of the yeast? The recipe looks yummy. Can't wait to make it.
    4. I grate my zucchini and yellow squash and it' s really good. The shorter "noodles" allow you to shovel it in by the spoonful!
    5. This looks delicious! I don't know much about nutritional yeast but I'm excited to try it. Do you know if Whole Foods or any grocery chains carry it?
      1. Thank you! Whole Foods carries it in their bulk section. You can find it at most health food stores in the baking isle.
    6. This was just simply delicious! Omg I have been using the spiralizer for few weeks now and can't get over it how all of the recipes turned out. This sauce is a fabulous white sauce for any recipes as we'll. thank you!!! P. s. I sautéed noodles for few minutes adding just enough sauce. Tossed them for few minute. Perfect:)
    7. I've never had Alfreddo sauce, but I'm already a fan of raw veggie pasta, and this sauce looks so straightforward and delicious that I think I'm going to have to! I haven't had anything cauliflower-based in ages. Going to try and grab one tomorrow and give this a shot:D
      1. You can omit it if you like. I have not heard that. Maybe you are thinking of yeast extract? That is an excitotoxin for sure.
