As much as I love Alfredo sauce, I don't love the way it makes me feel. So here's a fresh and healthful Alfredo that pairs perfectly with roasted veggies!
Alfredo sauce is one of the most decadent calorie laden sauces out there made from copious amounts of butter and Parmesan cheese. In a perfect world, Alfredo sauce would have a lower calorie sister that tasted just as good. Could it be that such a thing really exists?
It does! This Roasted Cauliflower with Alfredo Sauce
is a fresh, easy dish that tastes anything but ho-hum healthy.
First start out with some cauliflower and Green Giant Steamers.
Toss them with some olive oil and lay them in a single layer on a baking sheet.
Roasting vegetables is my favorite way to cook them because it caramelizes them and brings out their natural flavors without adding a bunch of salt and fat. Look at the beautiful golden edges.
A base for our Alfredo sauce is made with milk and a little Parmesan cheese first. We're using way less Parmesan cheese than a normal Alfredo calls for to keep it light and healthy.
Who would have thought that it all starts with some Greek yogurt? When you think about it, it's a prime candidate. Creamy and smooth, yet packed full of protein instead of fat. Whisk in your yogurt to send this sauce into over the top creaminess.
