Okay, seriously. This creamy (cream-less) vegan Cauliflower Alfredo is the bomb.com. It’s a different recipe and more simplified recipe than the Creamy Cauliflower Sauce I made last summer. Plus, this is vegan. You don’t have to be vegan or even vegetarian to enjoy this recipe, it caters to and will satisfy all palates. Trust me, my boyfriend that is a meat-eater really digs this recipe, along with some non veg-head friends. However, I do now follow and promote a based plant based diet one of which that excludes or greatly minimizes the consumption of animal products/by-products. It’s a great way for those that have trouble getting in their veggies too. Looking at it, you would not guess the base of this creamy sauce is plant-based. I’ve made this recipe many times over the past few weeks, using it as a sauce over raw Zoodles, combining it with a spicy tomato sauce to create a “blush” sauce, or just using it as the sauce on it’s own over different varieties of pasta. It’s even good as a dip! Add in extra veggies too, such as peas (great combo) FYI.
When I’ve posted the photo on my Instagram feed, I get many comments/requests for the recipe. So, let me introduce you to an amazing website for plant-based recipes, lifestyle tips, and general inspiration that you can use everyday – Raw Till’ Whenever. This site is run by two amazing plant-based foodies (Hannah and Derek) that are lovely people both in person and online. Here’s the link for the recipe: Low Fat Vegan Alfredo Sauce. If you’re vegetarian, you can substitute some of the ingredients if you would like. However, I highly recommend you try this exact recipe.
You will need:
– A fresh head of cauliflower
– Fresh minced garlic
– Nutritional Yeast
– Hemp Hearts (such as Manitoba Harvest brand)
– A fresh lemon
– Sea Salt
+ a pasta of your choice
