Creamy cauliflower Alfredo sauce is everything! Creamy. Cheesy. Garlic-y. Oh and there’s some vegetables in there. So basically. its healthy. Haha. Just kidding but it is a bit more healthy then your traditional Alfredo sauce.
Cauliflower is one of my favorite vegetables-if not my favorite. It’s just so dang versatile. You can eat it in its original form and it’s so yummy. Orrrrr you can manipulate it to create so many other amazing dishes. Like mac n cheese. Or mashed cauliflower. But the best way to transform it is to make it into Alfredo Sauce. Say what?! Shocker, I know!
Yes, it’s good. And no it doesn’t taste like vegetables. Now that we have that out of the way lets talk about this deliscous sauce.
If I’m being super honest this cauliflower alfredo sauce was born out of necessity. My kids were going through this phase where they fought off vegetables like the plague. So, I had to get veggies into their mouths anyway possible. I say all of that to say, this sauce is not about NOT having all the fatty stuff in it. I created it to hide the cauliflower. It’s definitely a lot healthier then your normal alfredo sauce but it still has some heavy cream and cheese in it. Moderation, right? Haha!
Healthy or not, it’s such a yummy take on traditional Alfredo Sauce. It’s creamy, garlicky, and cheesy. And then there’s the cauliflower. It gives the sauce a hint of sweetness but doesn’t overpower the taste of the dish. Honestly, it’s perfection! Throw it on some noodles for your traditional Alfredo. Or, if you’re being super healthy put it on top of Zoodles!
Be sure to let me know how it came out if you tried it!
