Cashew Alfredo tastes like much more than the sum of its parts, and it’s a great alternative for people who want a creamy sauce free of wheat and dairy. The onion and garlic powders are what add taste and flavor to the Alfredo sauce, so don’t skip those ingredients! Steamed broccoli gives this dish a “loaded baked potato” feel and provides vitamin K, folic acid and collagen-boosting vitamin C.
