Roasted Garlic Cauliflower Alfredo Sauce – turn cauliflower into creamy and delicious sauce with the addition of roasted garlic and Parmesan! Skip the cheese for a vegan option! Check out our VIDEO to see how to make it!
Happy Monday, friends! I hope you had a wonderful weekend! After a carb-loaded and sweets-filled last week, I thought it’s time for delicious savory dinner recipes. And I am starting with a healthy one!
One of my Hubby’s favorite pasta dishes is chicken Alfredo. The creamy garlic Parmesan sauce with chicken and linguine is pure comfort food. This summer, I have been working on lighting up our favorite dishes and incorporating healthier options into out menu everyday. Hello, green smoothies!
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’ve been making this sauce since it rocked Pinterest. It just gives me another reason to love cauliflower. When I don’t turn it into rice or roast the whole head or bake breaded florets – I cook it and blend it into a perfectly creamy sauce.
Recently, I was planning on making it for our pasta and the roasted garlic for my focaccia. Then a light bulb went of in my head and few cloves found it’s way into the blender with the cauliflower. Best.decision.ever.
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!

This recipe makes 3 cups of sauce, but if you are lucky like me and get a large cauliflower head at Aldi’s for $1.40 – you will end up with 7 cups f florets and make two jars of the sauce! Big score and so much cheaper than a store-bought sauce! Not to mention healthy. I have several versions of this sauce cooking up and can’t wait to share them with you so stay tuned!
