Making condiments and sauces at home does not have to be difficult or unhealthy! This PALEO Caulifredo Sauce is packed with plant power and tastes tons better than store bought!
There is sort of a love hate situation with cauliflower I have to be honest. I actually love cauli in so many formed – pureed, roasted, even hidden in things. I do not love cauliflower as a faker. For example, rice is not cauliflower, nor the other way around. Nor does it make a great cracker – I tried them, they sucked. But when you honor this easy to make veggie for what it’s actually worth, it can make a delicious addition to so many meals.
I wrote this recipe for Paleo Cooking with Your Instant Pot and it has been one of the more surprisingly popular recipes. We can possibly thank the uprising of cauliflower for this, or the fact that this sauce legitimately tastes like a dairy-packed alfredo sauce that you want to pour on anything edible. Maybe even some inedible things. Listen, it’s that good
What’s better is that little humans will eat this stuff too. Dip snacks into it, slather it on pasta, heck, serve it as soup! That savory, creamy, richness is enjoyed by all.

PALEO CAULIFREDO SAUCE
- 1 head organic cauliflower, leaves removed and chopped
- 8 ounces homemade or high quality store bought chicken stock
- 2 teaspoons minced garlic
- 1/2 cup dairy-free milk
- 2 tablespoons ghee or preferred cooking fat
- 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- Optional: pinch nutmeg
- Combine all of the ingredients in the stainless steel basin of the INSTANT POT
- Secure the lid and close off the pressure valve. Press the Steam button (high pressure, 10 minutes) and allow the ingredients to cook for the entire cycle
- Once finished, quick-release the pressure valve and removed the lid when safe to do so
- Now use an immersion blender to puree the mixture or carefully transfer the contents to a traditional blender and blend on high until pureed
- Serve with grain free pasta or zucchini noodles
I was honestly skeptical because I tried to make a vegan mac & cheese the other day and it turned out disgusting… But this is a freaking game changer! I was literally licking the bowl as if it was batter and then sipping the mason jar of Alfredo sauce like it was soup because I couldn’t stop eating it and I hadn’t cooked the pasta yet. Everyone needs to make this!
Yay!!! Thank you!
