Special Diet Notes & Options: Polenta with Dairy-Free Alfredo Sauce

By ingredients, this recipe is dairy-free / non-dairy, egg-free, peanut-free, soy-free, tree nut-free, vegan, and vegetarian.

For gluten-free and dairy-free alfredo sauce, I would try your favorite gluten-free flour blend or sweet white rice flour as a flour substitute.

Alisa’s Note: The original recipe called for 4 cups of milk alternative, which resulted in thin soup when we trialed it. We’ve reduced the amount significantly, allowing you to whisk in as much as you like for your desired consistency. We needed no more than 2 cups.
