Cauliflower Vegan Alfredo Sauce

A Vegan Cauliflower Alfredo Sauce that’s as creamy and rich as a traditional alfredo sauce, but created entirely from plant-based ingredients and packed with nutrition. Whip this vegan alfredo sauce up in minutes and use it on your favorite guilt-free pasta dishes. Add nutritional yeast to your alfredo to give the sauce a cheesy flavor.


  • 1 head cauliflower, cut into florets (about 4 cups)
