Dairy-Free Cauliflower Alfredo

A few weeks ago, I came across a recipe for Cauliflower Alfredo on Pinterest and thought: “I don’t see how this can taste good” but kept reading and looking through similar recipes. I spent the next 20min convincing myself it couldn’t work, then took the easiest recipe and made my way to the kitchen. Well, it turned out to be delicious and I am sold on the concept. Creamy Cauliflower Alfredo Sauce that is dairy-free, gluten-free and guilt-free. GIVE IT ALL TO ME!

There are so many variations of this recipe but I’ll leave you with our favorite one which includes a few tweaks we made along the way. We hope you enjoy it.
