Zucchini is so great because it’s a very water-dense vegetable so it makes a great sauce. I had a few ingredients in my fridge that I needed to use up (so I could buy other flavors tehehe) so this makeshift easy recipe was just what I needed. I call it “cheater’s” Alfredo because I actually used a garlic hummus that I had made last week instead of making one specifically for this recipe. However, you may choose to follow the hummus recipe I include when making this, or use one you bought from the store. Each is just as good and no judgments for cheating. I respect that!
Cheater’s Vegan Alfredo Sauce
1/3 raw zucchini
2/3 c garlic hummus
1/2 block (anout 2/3 c shredded) vegan cheese
Put all ingredients in a food processor and blend to a creamy consistency.
For the garlic hummus:
1 can chickpeas
2 T tahini
1 T minced garlic
1 T lemon juice
1 T garlic salt
1 t parsley (if desired)
Place all ingredients in a food processor and blend. You might need to stream in a bit of warm water if the consistency is too thick.
I have used this sauce as a dip for veggies and chips, a sandwich spread and on pasta.
