Cauliflower Alfredo Sauce is a great low carb alternative to regular Alfredo sauce. It’s easy to make and very flavorful!

Cauliflower is still a hot and trendy topic. I thought cauliflower pizza and pasta died back in 2015 but according to my poll on Instagram this week everyone is still excited it about all things cauliflower!

Don’t get me wrong, I love cauliflower just as much as you do!!! And sometimes, something lightened up like this cauliflower Alfredo sauce just sounds sooo good!

This sauce has the perfect creaminess and is easily whipped up in 20 minutes!

You’ll need a food processor or a powerful blender to blend up all of the cauliflower once the cauliflower is boiled. Then everything will be combined together in and the sauce is DONE.

I paired my sauce with broccoli and linguini and it was a delicious weeknight dinner. You can make this into chicken Alfredo, Alfredo flatbreads, or even make a Chicken Alfredo pot pie mmmm!

  • Bring chicken broth to a boil in a large pot. While it comes to boil, chop cauliflower into small pieces. Drop cauliflower into boiling broth, turn heat down to medium/low and cover with a lid. Let the cauliflower cook for 10 minutes or until soft with a fork.
  • Meanwhile, in a small saute pan, cook garlic and butter for 3-4 minutes over medium heat. Once cauliflower is done, stain and dump into your food processor or food blender. (Reserve 1/2 cup broth!). Mix the broth, cauliflower and remaining ingredients in food processor until smooth.
  • Enjoy sauce over pasta and steamed veggies!
