My family and I recently had the chance to try four Victoria Vegan sauces (they offer several more), and we enjoyed them all.
I am still shaking my head in amazement that I can buy jarred dairy-free Alfredo sauce that everyone in my family will eat.
The first night we tried the Victoria Vegan Original Alfredo and the Vegan Vodka Sauces. I made quick Italian sausage meatballs (would be great with vegan meatballs, too!), browning them before adding the Vegan Vodka Sauce. I served the Alfredo simply with some pasta for taste-testing.
We liked the cashew-based Alfredo straight but Scott and I thought it would be especially good with some primavera-style vegetables. The bit of leftover Alfredo sauce made a great pizza topping the following night!
Another night we tried the White Bean Marinara and the Artichoke Vegan Alfredo Sauce with some leftovers. The White Bean Marinara has an acidic tang from the tomatoes, but the creamy white beans balances it out. The chunks of artichoke marry well with the Alfredo in the Artichoke Vegan Alfredo Sauce, which I think would be great with seafood.
Our favorite of all the Victoria Vegan sauces was the Vegan Vodka Sauce. It is so flavorful and rich. It actually reminded us of the sauce often used for lamb meatballs on Indian restaurant buffets. The same level of complexity and richness of flavor, if not the exact seasonings. The Vegan Vodka Sauce could easily be used in a variety of recipes.
