This vegan cream sauce recipe makes a rich, thick sauce for a perfect pasta dish, without using cream, butter, cheese or eggs.

The vegan cream sauce uses a brilliant blend of vegetable-based ingredients in place of the usual non-vegan items found in traditional cream sauce. It calls for coconut oil, vegetable stock, cashews and vegan butter spread, among a blend of savory spices. The main base of the vegan "cream" is butternut squash, a creamy, flavorful alternative that will surely satisfy any cravings for hearty, comforting pasta sauce.

Recent shifts in eating have caused kitchens to be divested of gluten, meat, eggs and a variety of other ingredients that certain diets or lifestyles call to eliminate. However, there's also been an explosion of interest in home cooking and comfort foods. This vegan cream sauce recipe reflects both of these requirements perfectly: it's a lifestyle-friendly alternative with no compromise in deliciousness and ease of preparation.
