Vegan Cauliflower Alfredo Pasta

View on Instagram

Never get tired of this super delicious & healthy pasta sauce recipe 😋 It's so easy to make & both vegan & gluten free! 🙌🏽 If you're into that sort of thing...🤷🏽‍♀️ Tried a different method this time for my pasta bc I am obsessed with my new @ourplace pan & wanted to use it for everything 😅 So instead of roasting my veggies, I steamed them 💦 Actually prefer this bc it soften my cauliflower but didn't burn them 🔥, so I had a nice creamy white sauce 🤗⁠

Vegan Cauliflower Alfredo Pasta

🔪 Prep Time: 10 minutes

🍳Cook Time: 20 minutes

🕒Total Time: 45 minutes

🍴Serving Size: 3-4


  • 1 box Gluten Free Brown Rice Spaghetti (@jovialfoods)⁠

  • 1/2 head (2 cups) Cauliflower

  • 1/4 Onion, roughly sliced

  • 2-3 cloves Garlic, minced

  • 3/4 cup Unsweetened Almond Milk (@califiafarms)⁠

  • 1/4 cup Vegetable Broth (@traderjoes)⁠

  • 3/4 cup Vegan Parmesan (@followyourheart)⁠

  • Half head of Broccoli

  • 2 Handfuls of Greens (spinach, kale, arugala, etc.)⁠

  • 2-3 Handfuls of Cherry Tomatoes, halved

  • Spices - Salt & Pepper, Nutmeg & Italian Seasoning


  1. Steam your cauliflower for roughly 10-12 minutes. My pan came with a steaming rack but you can find an inexpensive one online that fits most pots. Add a little water underneath and cover to steam. It should be fork tender.⁠

  2. If you have space, you can steam the broccoli as well for 6-8 minutes. Or like I did, waited until the cauliflower was done and then steamed the broccoli.⁠

  3. Meanwhile, cook the spaghetti according to directions. Drain, rinse, and set aside.⁠

  4. Once your veggies have steamed, add your onion and garlic to the pan with some olive oil. Add in some salt and pepper. Saute for a good 6-8 minutes, until caramelized.⁠

  5. Then add in the milk, broth, cauliflower, cheese, and spices. Let the cheese fully melt and mix in.⁠

  6. Transfer to a counter-top blender and blend until creamy (or keep in pan/pot and use an immersion blender).⁠

  7. Add your spaghetti and steam broccoli to the pan. Then pour in your creamy pasta sauce.⁠

  8. Finally, add in some greens and let it wilt in the hot sauce.⁠

  9. Serve pasta in a bowl with fresh sweet tomatoes and some red crushed pepper!⁠

Notes & Tips:

  • Store in an air-tight container for up to a week. The leftovers make for a great work lunch!

  • To heat up leftovers, splash pasta with some water and then microwave for 1.5-2 minutes.

  • For roasting method - Preheat toaster oven to 400° (regular oven 425°).⁠ ️In a baking dish, add in the cauliflower, onion and garlic. All can be loosely chopped.⁠ ️Top with olive oil, salt & pepper. Roast in the oven for roughly 15-20 minutes to soften.⁠ Then add in to your pan with the milk, broth, cheese, and spices.
