{Recipe} Cauliflower Alfredo Sauce

Cauliflower has been my bff lately. I usually roast it or make mashed faux-tatoes with it.  It adds a creaminess to my Butternut Squash Mac & Cheez and now I'm making it into a dairy free Creamy Alfredo Sauce.
I was inspired by this recipe.  I'm using frozen cauliflower for convenience.
1 12 oz bag of frozen cauliflower (or one small bunch of fresh)
1/2 cup almond milk(or dairy milk of choice)
1/2 onion, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, chopped 
2 TBS Nutritional Yeast
1 TBS Lemon Juice
1 TBS Garlic Powder
Salt & Pepper to taste
Pasta of your choice (I'm using spaghetti squash)
1/2-1 cup white beans or chick peas (optional)
Other vegetables to add to dish (broccoli, mushrooms, green beans, etc), optional
Start by steaming the cauliflower.  While it's cooking, saute the garlic in some water over medium heat. Don't let it brown.  Add steamed cauliflower, sauteed garlic, almond milk, nutritional yeast, garlic powder, lemon juice and salt & pepper to blender.  Boil water for pasta and make according to directions.
Blend on high until smooth. Taste and adjust seasonings if necessary.
Saute onion and additional vegetables (if using) over medium heat. I was using left over roasted green beans.
Add beans if using (I added cannellini beans) and cook until warmed through.
Have your pasta ready (or in my case spaghetti squash).
Add veggies and sauce.  Toss to combine.  Add more nutritional yeast on top if you like.
Let's keep in touch!

Pinned to my Thunder Thighs Be Gone board. If I'd start cooking from it they might be gone.
