Enjoy this delicious and nut free vegan vodka sauce!
I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to create a vodka sauce recipe. I used to LOVE vodka sauce before going vegan. As someone allergic to nuts, all the recipes I’ve found on the internet have contained cashews. I knew I needed to make my own version which could be nut free and a bit more cost effective (as cashews can be expensive).
I used full fat coconut milk for this recipe. The key is to only use the hardened coconut in the can, and not use the leftover liquid. It surprisingly does not have a coconut flavor at all and really helps bring the creamy component to a traditional vodka sauce.
The day that I made this recipe my mom came over to visit for a little. If you didn’t know, I am from NYC and moved to Hoboken, NJ in October of 2018. So my mom likes to come visit me a couple of times a month for a few hours.
I was really excited for her to come over because A. I missed her & B. She can taste test my vodka sauce! She isn’t vegan but has always been super open to try new vegan dishes and go to allll the vegan restaurants with me.
So she tried it, and loved it! I made her a bowl and sent her a home with a container of it so her and my dad could enjoy it for dinner that night. It’s always important, no matter the person, to approve of my vegan dishes. Getting non-vegan opinions is a plus! I’ve been Vegan for over 4 years and you can forget components to dishes you used to love, so getting the reassurance that you nailed it is a great feeling!
I hope that you enjoy this recipe! If you make any of my recipes, don’t forget to tag me in the photo on IG @plantbasedjane
