Ultra creamy Alfredo sauce that's completely free of dairy, soy, nuts, grains and starches.
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 cups roughly chopped cauliflower
  • 1 cup roughly chopped parsnip
  • ½ cup roughly chopped parsley root, or additional parsnip
  • 1 tablespoon white cooking wine
  • 1½ cup non-dairy milk
  • ½ cup nutritional yeast
  • 2 teaspoons gluten-free Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • Sea salt, to taste
  1. Add minced garlic and olive oil to a medium saucepan and saute on medium-high heat for 1 minute. Add chopped cauliflower, parsnip and parsley root. Continue to cook for 1 minute.
  2. Add cooking wine, continue to cook for 2 minutes.
  3. Add non-dairy milk, cover and bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer covered for 6-7 minutes, until vegetables are soft.
  4. Pour cooked vegetable mix into the bowl of your food processor or high-powered blender. Add remaining ingredients and puree until ultra smooth, about 2 minutes.
  5. Makes 1½ cups of dairy-free Alfredo sauce
If you do not have access to parsnips or parsley root, I'm sure additional cauliflower could be used.
