Yields6 Servings
Prep Time10 minsCook Time10 minsTotal Time20 mins

 4 cups cauliflower floretsabout 1/2 large or 1 small cauliflower
 2 garlic clovesyou can add more to taste if desired
 ½ cup plain unsweetened plant-based yogurt
 ¼ cup nutritional yeast
 1 tbsp lemon juice
 1 tbsp miso
 1 tsp onion powder
 ½ tsp garlic powder
 ½ tsp Himalayan saltoptional, or adjust to taste
 Black pepperto taste
 6 servings of gluten-free pasta of choice
 4 cups fresh or frozen kaleoptional, if using fresh tear or chop
 Fresh parsleyoptional, to garnish

1

Chop the cauliflower into florets, and steam for 8-10 minutes or until tender. While the cauliflower is steaming, you can cook your pasta according to the instructions on the package (if it's done cooking before the alfredo is done, set it aside).

2

Once the cauliflower is cooked, add all of the remaining alfredo ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth.

3

Pour the cauliflower alfredo sauce over the pasta, add the kale in if desired, and stir to combine. If it isn't hot or the kale isn't wilting, turn the pan on to low/medium heat and cook until it is hot and the kale has wilted stirring occasionally. You may also need to stir in a little water if the alfredo sauce is too thick.

4

Season to taste, serve, and top with Balsamic Garlic Mushrooms and some fresh parsley if desired.

Notes
5

With 4 cups of cauliflower, this recipe makes about 4 cups of sauce.

6

If you don't want to use plant-based yogurt you can substitute plain unsweetened plant-based milk, though the consistency and flavor change slightly.

7

If you don't use all of it, any leftover cauliflower alfredo sauce can be stored in an airtight glass container in the fridge for up to 3 days, or frozen for longer.
