This Vegan Cauliflower Alfredo sauce is absolutely dreamy.
Super easy to make, with no oil or fats whatsoever will turn your lunch into a tasty and guilt-free one!
How to make Vegan Cauliflower Alfredo Sauce
You only need to have at hand:
Cauliflower (of course!)
Oat Milk (or any other plantbased milk you fancy)
Bunch of Spices (nutmeg & smoked paprika for a even tastier finish!)
Fresh Parsley (for extra freshness, but completely optional)
Then just grab your favourite pasta (I’ve used linguine) and let’s start cooking!
First of all we need to chop the cauliflower head into bites. It doesn’t need to be perfect because we are going to blend it eventually, but try to make them roughly the same size to achieve a more uniform cooking. Depending on the size, half cauliflower is generally enough for 3 to 4 servings. You can use the remaining part to make other special recipes starring this very versatile veggie, such as this Kung Pao Cauliflower or this Cauliflower and Leek Curry.
Second we have to wash the cauliflower and boil with a clove of garlic in hot salted water for 10-15 minutes, until fork tender.
Next step is to drain the cooked cauliflower and the garlic (you can keep the cooking water, full of nutrients and goodness to cook the pasta) and place it in a stick blender glass along with the plantbased milk and the rest of the ingredients and blend until smooth and gorgeously creamy.
Isn’t it just beautiful?
Final step is too cook the pasta, drain it al dente (or cook it longer if you like, I won’t judge!) and coat it in the amazing vegan cauliflower alfredo sauce.
You and nobody will tell that this sauce is absolutely oil free!
A few final tips & tricks:
– Make sure to make big quantities because I’m pretty sure people that try it will come for seconds.
– Alternatively, for an even lighter dish, the sauce alone will make a delicious and cosy soup.
– This recipe works perfectly without nutritional yeast, buy if you’re a fan feel free to top it with some nutritional yeast of vegan cheese for extra flavour and B12.
– Don’t forget to add some fresh parsley on top and some freshly grounded black pepper!
