Easy Creamy Cauliflower Alfredo Sauce, Vegan + Gluten-Free

It’s comfort food time…again!

This winter has been all about comfort food for me and today’s recipe is another to cozy up with on a chilly night. This Vegan +Gluten-Free Easy Creamy Cauliflower Alfredo Sauce is super simple to make and highly versatile.

Traditional alfredo sauce is made of everything that used to give me a stomach ache (back in my dairy-eating days), cream, butter and cheese. I love this dairy-free version because it’s rich and creamy but totally stomach ache free!

I kept my first alfredo dinner (I made enough sauce to last all week) pretty simple and used brown rice spirals (although fettuccine would have been a classic alfredo choice) and added a little steamed broccoli with parsley on top. Feel free to get really creative here and use whatever pasta/rice/quinoa and veggies you like- just about everything tastes good with this sauce on it!

    • Nutritional yeast would be a great addition! I wanted to experiment with not using it for this recipe but I do think it would be great to make it taste cheesier!
