This pasta sauce is so velvety smooth, thick, and luscious and is perfect for any night of the week. You would ever even guess the main ingredient is cauliflower!
The best way to sneak some veggies into anyone’s diet is to pair them with a big bowl of pasta. I like to call cauliflower the chameleon of the veggie group. It takes on any flavor you pair it with.
That’s why when you add nutritional yeast, sautéed onions, and garlic to the mix, you get this delicious creamy sauce that tastes just like Alfredo sauce.
This alfredo sauce is a total game changer in the pasta department. I mean it's incredibly easy to make!
- First sautee the garlic and onions in a pan
- Then cook the cauliflower in broth until it's soft
- Add the cauliflower, garlic, onions, and seasonings to a blender and blend on high until nice and creamy
See, super simple!
Nutritional yeast is that nutritious yellow flaky seasoning that gives everything it touches a nice “cheesy” flavor. It’s kinda my bestie. Other things I’ve used it in - Salmon Mac & Cheese, “Cheesy” Popcorn, and this Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Sweet Potato.
