Vegan Cauliflower Alfredo Deliciousness

So. Much. YUM.

This cauliflower vegan alfredo pasta sauce is every bit as creamy, rich and delicious as you could imagine! Transitioning to a cleaner lifestyle does not mean you have to give up old indulgences – and alfredo sauce can still be enjoyed. So, ditch the jarred alfredo sauce that is loaded with artificial ingredients, preservatives and go for the healthier, dairy-free, do it yourself, plant-based version – your body will thank you for it.

Cauliflower is such a versatile vegetable that I truly recommend getting comfortable cooking and experimenting with. You can make an easy gluten free pizza crust from mashed cauliflower, delicious roasted garlic cauliflower mash, cauliflower buffalo wings, or make creamy pasta sauces like this one.
