No matter what your opinion is, I'm sure this election (as well as the general state of the universe) is making you want to reach for some comfort food (or maybe celebration food!). Thankfully, I've got just the thing. This vegan vodka sauce is comforting, easy, and so delicious.

When it comes to tomato-based pasta sauces, I've always favored vodka sauce. What's not to love? Typically, it is so delicious from adding copious amounts of heavy cream and parmesan cheese.

This vegan vodka sauce skips out on the dairy by using coconut cream! Even better, this vegan vodka only needs 5 main ingredients.

    Why is the vodka added? It has almost no flavour or fragrance...
