Recipe Ingredients for High-Protein Creamy Roasted Cauliflower Alfredo Pasta

5 cups cauliflower
1 1/2 cups yellow onion, sliced (1.5 cups)
1 clove garlic,
1 tbsp olive oil
1 cup cooked white beans (I used Marrow beans), rinsed and drained (reserve bean cooking liquid)
1/3 cup water
1 1/4 cups almond breeze
1 tbsp nutritional yeast flakes
1 tsp fresh lemon juice
1/2 tsp white miso
1/4 tsp smoked paprika
1 freshly ground black pepper, lots!

Recipe Directions for High-Protein Creamy Roasted Cauliflower Alfredo Pasta

  1. 1. Preheat oven to 400F. In a large bowl, mix together the chopped cauliflower, onion and garlic. Toss with hazelnut oil and sprinkle with salt. Place in a single layer on a silpat-lined baking sheet. Roast at 400F for 45-60 minutes, until tender.

  2. 2. Once the cauliflower is cooked, transfer to a blender along with the cooked white beans, broth, almond milk, nutritional yeast flakes, lemon juice, miso, smoked paprika and freshly ground black pepper. Blend until smooth and creamy. Adjust the consistency by adding more milk or broth. Season to taste. Set aside until needed.

  3. 3. Meanwhile, cook your pasta and then drain. For kelp noodles, just rinse and drain. Set aside until needed.

  4. 4. In a large frypan, place 1/4 cup water. Bring up to medium-heat. Once boiling, add your spinach and stir until it is wilted, around 1-2 minutes. Add the sun-dried tomatoes and stir. If anything sticks, add more water. You are basically steaming the greens. Add your cauliflower sauce (you might not need the entire recipe) and heat mixture if it has cooled too much. Toss with pasta, season to taste and serve. Store extra sauce in the fridge.

  5. Serves 4.
