Cauliflower Alfredo Sauce:
2 cups roasted cauliflower (in olive oil or another oil and sea salt)
2 tsp minced garlic
1 1/2 cups light coconut milk
2 tbsp dairy free cream cheese or 2 tbsp cashew butter + 1 tsp nutritional yeast
1 tsp thyme
1 tsp rosemary
1 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp pepper
2 cups mixed mushrooms (I recommend oyster mushrooms and shiitake)
2 tsp olive oil
1 box fettuccine (GF if needed, or swap in zucchini or carrot noodles for Paleo)
1 tsp minced garlic
1/2 tsp sea salt
Place roasted cauliflower in a large food processor and puree until smooth.
Add in the remaining alfredo sauce ingredients and puree until smooth.
Set aside the sauce while you cooke the mushrooms.
In a medium skillet, heat 1 tsp olive oil on medium heat and sauté the minced garlic until lightly brown.
Add in rinsed mushrooms to the pan and sauté until completely cooked, about 5 minutes.
Turn off the heat, cover, and let sit on or near the stove while you boil the pasta.
In a large pot, heat directed amount of water according to the pasta you’re using and add in 1 tsp of olive oil to the water.
Let the water come to a boil, then reduce the heat to cook the pasta according to the directions.
When the pasta is done, strain the pasta and place it in a large bowl to toss together with the mushrooms and about 1-2 cups of cauliflower alfredo sauce.
Plate and top with vegan or regular parmesan cheese and extra sea salt if needed.
