Creamy Vegan Sauce


This top-notch Creamy Vegan Sauce is the perfect thing for everything. From pasta to snack dip, spread for your sandwiches and arepas, topping for your artichokes, or even salad dressing. You can instantly decide the needed texture without changing the flavor profile on the result.

This Basil and Parsley Creamy Sauce is MY kind of sauce. That kind that I can rest assured that if I have some in the fridge, I can make a lunch or dinner in minutes, or turn any bland-flavored rice, pasta, or salad into something full of flavor, with a good punch and still delicate.

When in Rome… We had lots of this sauce! Everyone fell in Love with!

I started making this sauce on our recent trip to Rome, where we spent the holidays.

My friend Tommy welcomed us to his apartment in the middle of the city, and as soon as we arrived, we showed us some beautiful artichokes he had in a flowerpot and said: please make something with these! I love artichokes; get creative!

I have always liked artichokes but have never been a self-proclaimed fan of them. So, I didn’t have an artichokes recipe in mind, so I googled for inspiration.

I ended up cooking artichokes in some different ways, as you have already seen in my previous post Carcioffi Alla Romana (Roman Style Artichoke). One of the recipes I stumbled with had a similar version of this sauce. I tried it, liked it, and started changing some ingredients until I got to this version, which we completely fell in love with.

I also use it for Falafels, sometime I use Hummus and sometimes this Creamy Sauce.

This sauce will be called out for sure in several recipes from now on since just in a couple of weeks. I have used it in a variety of dishes where it works phenomenally.

I hope this preparation sneaks into your Kick-Ass Easy Recipes Book! Let me know how it goes!
