Vegan Cauliflower Fettuccine Alfredo Recipe
In a world that constantly ridicules carbohydrates and fats, how does one enjoy a wonderful dish of fettuccine Alfredo?! Easy. You can utilize zucchini noodles, but they tend to go soggy faster than you can say, “wow, that was good”. The other option is to take my favorite approach and skip the classic heavy Alfredo sauce. Instead put a modern, healthy spin on your favorite comfort food by making this creamy, non-dairy Vegan Cauliflower Fettuccine Alfredo!
Cauliflower is this magical veggie that can be used to make everything from pizzas, to smoothies, and even sauces! From a distance, cauliflower being used as a sauce sounds off-putting, but it takes on the same texture as traditional Alfredo and is a blank canvas where you can take the flavor profile wherever you would like!
What I love about this dish is that it’s dairy free, egg free, and meat free. It also takes minimal time to prepare, is packed with fiber making it more filling, and replicates a perfect fettuccine Alfredo sans countless calories. If you’re looking to enjoy your favorite bowl of pasta without the hassle of intricate, heavy sauces and unwanted calories, you have to try this healthier classic!
