Cauliflower Alfredo sauce + pasta

Hey pixels!! Do you want some healthy food?? Cauliflower vitamins, soy proteins and fiber. Can you ask for more? Doubt it… Oh, yes, you can ask for a wonderful flavour, too. Well, this is another thing you will find in this amazing recipe!! You’re welcome, my happy pixels!!

No, now I’m being serious. This is a perfect recipe if you have some cauliflower leftovers, or if you buy a small one. Trust me, it’s better if you use a fresh one, rather than frozen cauliflower florets. Fresh fruit and vegetables are always better. I bought mine at a farmer’s market, here, in my town. It was a big one, because I’ve used the rest for another recipe, that will come next week. Keep in touch, my happy pixels!!!

Ingredients (serves 2 as a main dish or 3 as a starter):

  • 250g whole wheat spaguetti
  • 2 cups cauliflower florets
  • 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 minced garlic
  • 1/2 cup soy cream
  • salt, black pepper

alfredo sauce 1

Directions:

Cook pasta.

While your pasta is cooking, it’s time to make that sauce!!  Bring a pot of water to a boil and add the cauliflower florets to the water. Let it cook for about 10′.

In a skillet over low heat, add the oil and garlic. Cook until the garlic has a sweet smell, not browned (usually around 30”).

Once the cauliflower is cooked, transfer it over to a blender. Add 1/8 cup water from the pot, soy cream, garlic, salt and pepper, and blend for a few minutes until it is completely smooth. Add more liquid if you would like the sauce to be thinner.

Drain pasta and mix with sauce. Serve warm.

Do you eat whole wheat pasta, my happy pixels? Do you mix pasta with veggies, like we’ve done here? Please, let me know in the comments below.

alfredo sauce 2

Ingredientes (para 2 como plato principal o 3 como entrante):

  • 250g spaguetti integrales
  • 2 cup de ramilletes de coliflor

  • sal, pimienta negra
  • 1/2 cucharada de aceite de oliva

Instrucciones:

Cocer la pasta siguiendo las instrucciones del fabricante.

En una sartén a baja temperatura, cocer el aceite y el ajo. Cocer hasta que el ajo tenga un olor dulce, pero sin estar tostado (sobre unos 30”).

Hervir la coliflor durante 10”. Triturarla junto con: 1/8 cup de líquido de cocción, la nata, el ajo cocido, sal y pimienta. Añadir más líquido si se quiere la salsa menos espesa.

Colar la pasta y mezclar con la salsa. Comer templado.
