Cauliflower Alfredo Sauce

Creamy pasta sauce is one of the absolute best comfort foods, but it’s not the healthiest choice. This cauliflower sauce is the perfect answer to the creamy sauce I crave, especially when it’s used to top my zoodles.


  • cloves of garlic

  • tbsp of olive oil

  • 5

    cups of chopped cauliflower

  • 6

    cups of vegetable broth

  • ½

    cup light cream


    Salt and pepper to taste


  • 1

    Bring the broth to boil in a large stock pot.

  • 2

    Add in the chopped cauliflower and cook until tender. Remove from heat.

  • 3

    In a separate pan, saute minced garlic in olive oil over low heat until it’s nice and fragrant (be sure to watch the video for my favorite helpful tip on how to remove those pesky garlic skins!)

  • 4

    Add the garlic, cream, salt and pepper to the stock pot and combine with an immersion blender. If you don’t have one, you can also use a regular blender.

  • 5

    Once it’s all smooth, spoon over the zoodles and store any extra in a Ziploc® container for later. I like to serve mine with a bit of parmesan cheese on top.
