My husband has joined Glibs under the name NotUsidore! To welcome him to the community, I thought tonight I would share his vegan Alfredo recipe.

Since going vegan, I’ve missed Alfredo more than anything. Happily, my meat loving husband has found a way to make a delicious vegan Alfredo that even he loves.

The secret is Chao cheese, a vegan cheese made out of tofu. It tastes like Havarti, and acts like cheese. It’s good enough that I can eat a slice and feel like I’m eating real cheese. It totally hits that craving.

Without further ado, I give you vegan Alfredo.
