If you’re trying to cut down on calories and sneak some more veggies into your dinner, this Quick and Easy Cauliflower Alfredo Sauce is definitely for you!
I feel like we should all marvel at the greatness that is cauliflower.
Seriously, is there anything that vegetable can’t do?
I had a large head of cauliflower in my fridge and I wanted to do something different with it. I had seen some recipes for Cauliflower Alfredo Sauce floating around pinterest, and ultimately I stopped at this recipe from Pinch of Yum.
I loved their simple technique, which had this creamy sauce ready to go before my fettuccine was even al dente!
I made a few small tweaks to their recipe, which I think really boosted the flavor of the sauce.
I served it to my kids and they had no idea they were eating a creamy cauliflower sauce. They happily gobbled it up and I felt great about them eating all of their veggies.
If you’re really into cutting back the calories, try serving this “Alfredo” sauce over a bed of zucchini noodles!
Or make it a more filling meal with some grilled chicken breast right on top!
Keep in mind, that while this “Alfredo” sauce is creamy and delicious, it is still made with cauliflower, so it will not taste EXACTLY like a true Alfredo sauce. But it will definitely give you that indulgent feeling without all the guilt.
And that, my friends, is a win in my book!
