This Alfredo sauce is so flavorful and creamy with no oil, dairy, or nuts needed! It's made from cauliflower, which when cooked for a bit and blended with the right ingredients, it transforms into the most perfect Alfredo sauce texture. —Wholesomely Elle

In This Recipe
  1. Combine all of the ingredients except for the lemon juice in a pot over medium heat. Bring to a boil then reduce heat slightly to a simmer, cover and cook for 13-15 minutes until cauliflower florets are completely soft and falling apart.
  2. Allow to cool for about 5 minutes then pour the mixture into a blender and add in the lemon juice before blending until creamy.
  3. The sauce makes enough for two portions of pasta, or about 8 oz of dry pasta and it will keep in a jar in the fridge for 3-5 days. Add to pasta right before serving.
