1 pound fettuccine or other pasta of choice
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon pepper
HOW TO MAKE VEGAN CAULIFLOWER FETTUCCINE ALFREDO
Step 1: To a large pot of boiling water, cook the cauliflower for 8 to 10 minutes, covered until the cauliflower is fork tender. Set aside 1 c. of the boiling water.
Step 2: In a large skillet, heat the olive oil on medium heat. Once hot, add the garlic and saute for about 1 to 2 minutes until tender and aromatic, but not browned.
Step 3: To a blender, transfer the cooked cauliflower using a slotted spoon. Then, add the sauteed garlic along with the reserved 1 c. cooking liquid, milk, salt, and pepper. Using a thin kitchen towel, cover the vent of the blender lid. Puree for about a minute until the sauce is smooth and creamy. You can add a couple of drops of water, milk, or olive oil if the saute begins to look dry.
Step 4: Serve the sauce with the cooked fettuccine. Enjoy!
