This healthy one pot Cauliflower Alfredo Zoodles is made with zucchini noodles and packed with spring vegetables including asparagus, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, red bell pepper slices and shredded carrots. It’s coated with a creamy vegan vegetable sauce that is paleo, Whole30, gluten free, low carb and dairy free.
So, are you seeing any signs of spring weather where you are? I am still waiting for old man winter to finally call it quits where I am since it snowed over the weekend. I am however loving all the bright and colorful spring produce I’m seeing lately and keep loading up my cart every time we go grocery shopping. I also can’t seem to stop remaking lower-carb versions of some of our favorite dishes with spiralized veggies:
- Healthy Chicken Chow Mein Zoodles
- Zucchini Noodle Skillet Lasagna
- Easy Pho with Daikon Noodles
- Pad Thai with Sweet Potato Noodles
……and Fettuccine Alfredo was next on our list.
This vegan version starts off with the popular creamy cauliflower sauce you’ve most likely seen all over the internet. If you haven’t tried it yet, you totally should! It really is amazing how creamy it gets with a high-speed blender.
The cauliflower florets get tossed into a big ‘ole pot until they cook up nice and tender. Next, into the blender they go where they get transformed into a super smooth and creamy sauce.
I added roasted garlic, smoked paprika, cayenne pepper and a pinch of key lime juice to give it a refreshing zing and a bump of flavor.
I also swapped in nutritional yeast to keep it completely vegan but you can totally use Parmesan cheese if you prefer.
The best part about this dish is you can add whatever veggies you have on hand. I used asparagus and broccoli this time. I also couldn’t resist adding Brussels sprouts, cherry tomatoes, a bell pepper and some shredded carrots.
These Cauliflower Alfredo Zoodles make a healthy, low carb, low sugar meal and are a great way to clean out your fridge with any lingering vegetables.
