I'm sure if you're a Pinterest addict like I am, you've seen the cauliflower alfredo sauce recipe. I definitely wanted to give it a try, but I wanted to clean it up a bit as well.
I took a head of cauliflower and broke it into pieces. After washing it well, I added water and cooked it in the microwave on High for 15 minutes. I just cooked it until it was tender. While my cauliflower was cooking, I drizzled a little olive oil in a pan and sauteed 10 cloves of garlic that I diced.
I transferred the garlic and then the cauliflower into my food processor. I pureed it and added a little bit of almond milk until it had the consistency of a sauce. Then I added some freshly grated Parmesan cheese. I love Parmesan, so I put about a half a cup in. I put it back into the pan and warmed it with some freshly chopped parsley.
I served the kids the "sauce" over whole wheat pasta. I fixed whole wheat gnocci for myself and my husband.
It was absolutely worth the extra effort! It tasted exactly like Alfredo sauce and all of the kids loved it. It was like fancy mac and cheese to Caleb. And none of them knew that they were eating cauliflower! I think it was much more filling than regular Alfredo sauce since it was packed with veggies.
The sauce contains 137 calories per serving and it is sooo good! This would be great with salmon on top, but we used some of our leftover turkey. It was delicious!
