This Roasted Cauliflower Alfredo Spaghetti provides a delicious dairy-free twist to traditional alfredo sauce. This recipe is also gluten-free.
You know I get excited about roasting my vegetables, right? This dish does just that! I am using roasted cauliflower to create some delicious dairy-free alfredo.

Starting off with a beautiful fresh cauliflower is key. Isn’t she pretty? Yep, I thought so too! I love cauliflower and feel it is an underused vegetable! We need to use it more when we are cooking? Deal?
Simply break apart the cauliflower into florets. The smaller pieces will be easier to roast!
The sauce uses one of my favorite spices! Any guesses? It is smoked paprika. It is used in the sauce and I put some top to season the dish even more!
Remember how I’ve talked about garlic and I rarely use anything more than garlic salt in my recipes? While I LOVE the taste of garlic, it doesn’t love me back. However, I have made this dish several times and shared it with some dairy-free, gluten-free friends. I was able to play around with garlic by using their tastebuds!
Garlic was a great addition to this recipe. Feel free to add 2 garlic cloves into the sauce mixture!
Get your blender or food processor out to help you make the sauce. It is pretty simple. Just dump and blend! See how simple this is?
Are you getting hungry yet? YES, me too!! While you put the sauce into a pot to warm it, let’s talk about pasta! I used an Organic Edamame Spaghetti from Explore Cuisine! I’ve had so much fun preparing many dishes with all the many types of pastas that Explore Cuisine has to offer!
I like the punch of protein that the Organic Edamame Spaghetti brings to the dish! A little extra protein is a good deal! Explore Cuisine offers products that are certified gluten-free, vegan and nonGMO!
Once your sauce is warm in your sauce pan, you can add it to the cooked noodles. The noodles have a beautiful green color. Gently toss to coat the noodles.
Once you have tossed the pasta and it is all coated with the delicious Roasted Cauliflower Alfredo, top with more smoked paprika and fresh parsley. Be sure to season with salt and pepper.
