HOW TO MAKE CAULIFLOWER ALFREDO SAUCE
This sauce is a combination of two veggies I absolutely love: cauliflower and garlic. I grew up eating a lot of cauliflower. My Mom had a collection of recipes using this veggie and made them a lot. The smell of sauteed garlic is my childhood memory, since my grandmother used it in almost every dish. I always have a jar of minced garlic in my fridge and now, roasted garlic cloves too. (P.S. I made a page on roasting garlic! Check it out, HERE!).
I add Parmesan cheese to my sauce because there is no Alfredo without it, but feel free to skip it for a vegan option or if you are currently on a Whole30 program!
According to MyFitnessPal, one serving of this sauce is 118 calories!
