Cauliflower Fettucine Alfredo

Cauliflower Fettucine Alfredo (from Oh She Glows)

Ingredients:

  • 1 medium head of cauliflower
  • 2 large garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened and unflavoured almond milk (or non-dairy milk of choice)
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4-1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4-1/2 teaspoon pepper, to taste
  • Fettuccine pasta of choice
  • Fresh parsley, for garnish
Directions:
  1. Add cauliflower florets in a large pot and cover with water. Bring to a low boil. Once boiling, cook for another 3-7 minutes until fork tender. Drain.
  2. Meanwhile, saute the minced garlic in water or vegetable broth over low heat for 4-5 minutes until softened and fragrant, but not browned.
  3. In a high speed blender, add the cooked and drained cauliflower, sauteed garlic, non-dairy milk, nutritional yeast, lemon juice, onion powder, garlic powder, and pepper. Blend until a super smooth sauce forms. If using a Vitamix use the tamper stick as needed. The key here is to get a really smooth sauce so don’t be afraid to let it run for a minute or so. Set aside.
  4. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add your desired amount of pasta and boil for the time instructed on the package. Drain pasta.
  5. Add cauliflower sauce into the pot and add the drained pasta. Heat over low-medium until heated enough to your liking.
  6. Serve with fresh minced parsley and black pepper and your favorite sauteed or roasted vegetables like peas, spinach, mushrooms, or broccoli.
