Creamy Cauliflower Alfredo Sauce

Recipe is altered to be SCD Safe. Original recipe is from PinchOfYum.com
INGREDIENTS
  • Vegetable noodles (zucchini, carrots, squash, etc. can be cut into noodles with a Julienne peeler, potato peeler or veggie noodle machine)
  • 3 small heads cauliflower
  • 6 cups vegetable broth (SCD approved, check product under Whole Foods)
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • pinch of nutmeg
  • pinch of black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ¼ cup coconut milk
  • 1 cup  boiling water from “pasta” pot
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Chop the cauliflower. Bring the vegetable broth to a boil over medium high heat and add cauliflower. Cook until cauliflower is soft, about 15 minutes. In my experience, the longer you cook it, the smoother the sauce will be. Meanwhile, melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the minced garlic and saute for 4-5 minutes or until soft and fragrant.
  2. As the garlic and cauliflower are cooking, bring a large pot of water to boil and cook the veggie noodles until desired consistency, reserving some of the water to add to the sauce later or use regular water.
  3. Transfer cauliflower to a blender with about 2 cups of the broth. You may need to do this in batches depending on the size of your blender. Add the sauteed garlic, salt, nutmeg, and black pepper and puree until very smooth, about 5 minutes. Once the mixture is moving, stream the olive oil into the blender. Add more broth or water if the mixture is too thick to move through the blender. You want it to turn through the blender easily. When puree is very smooth, transfer back to the butter/garlic skillet.
  4. Add the Mimiccreme and cook over low heat. Add the  pasta water (or regular water) and keep warm until ready to serve. Combine noodles and sauce in a large pot or skillet and serve immediately.
NOTES
The sauce will “dry out” a little bit as it cools on the pasta. Adding a little water to the leftovers will help make it creamy again. Serving size is about 1 cup of sauce.
