Healthy twist

Alfredo sauce doesn't have to be full of butter, cream and cheese. This lightened up version is perfect for keeping those New Year's resolutions.

Creamy cauliflower Alfredo sauce recipe

Slightly adapted from Pinch of Yum

Yields about 5 cups


  • 6 cups cauliflower florets
  • 7 cups vegetable stock
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1/3-1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

Healthy twist


  1. In a large pot, add cauliflower florets and vegetable stock. Bring to a boil and cook till fork tender.
  2. Once tender, scoop out cauliflower and add to a high-powered blender (we used a Vitamix). Add 1 cup of the vegetable stock (that you cooked your cauliflower in), salt, pepper, garlic, milk, Parmesan cheese and olive oil.
  3. Puree on high until smooth. If the sauce seems too thick, simply add a little more stock or milk.
  4. Serve over pasta if desired.
