Craving pasta? Good ole Alfredo? This is a great option to keep it low cal and tasty!

I served this over diced chicken with broccoli and snap peas. Keep it really low cal with zucchini noodles, or high protein with chick pea pasta 😉 All nutrient dense and delish!

And… of course you can spice it up with a bit of Sriracha!

BENEFITS OF COOKING WITH CAULIFLOWER

Cauliflower is a great low-calorie way to add nutrients like vitamin C, potassium, fiber and folic acid to your diet. If you are looking for a healthier way to add a creamy texture to your sauces, cauliflower is your secret ingredient. Simply steamed or boiled until tender, a quick whirl in your blender creates a smooth and earthy puree with just a subtle flavor. The puree makes a beautiful sauce base so you can replace heavy creams that are high in fat that you would typically find in a cream sauce. Since the taste of cauliflower is very neutral, you can infuse any flavors you desire like garlic, onion, spicy peppers, spinach or cheese.
