Roasted Garlic Cauliflower Fettuccine Alfredo (vegan)

This Alfredo sauce is paleo friendly, dairy free, gluten free, nut free, coconut free, and yeast free. Don't you feel so free?
Frankly, I'm surprised it's not made of air! But actually this alfredo sauce centers around a vegetable. I'm all about getting more veggies in your diet. Red Velvet brownies is a great example.

But really you can turn this:


And maybe you happened upon this recipe somehow and you're not doing the whole dairy-free thing. In fact, you may be appalled at the idea! But really you must try this roasted cauliflower sauce (you can add a little parmesan, no judgment here).
Roasted Garlic Cauliflower Alfredo Sauce
1 1/4 cup broth
1 head cauliflower
4-7 garlic cloves
1/4 cup olive oil
2 TB lemon juice
2/3 cup sesame seeds
Sea Salt or Herbamare, to taste
Pinch of parsley and basil
1. Wash and chop cauliflower into florets.
2. In a baking dish, add cauliflower, garlic and 1/4 cup broth.
3. Roast at 400 degrees for 45-60 minutes until cauliflower is cooked through and starting to brown.
4. Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth. Pour over noodles with steamed asparagus or use on a pizza (details below).
Big Blue Eyes is learning to twirl her noodles. I remember when my Dad first taught me. A fond food memory!
This sauce also makes great pizza sauce alternative. We used half the above sauce on Namaste crust pizza with sundried tomatoes and artichoke hearts. It was yummy, especially with a  drizzle of balsamic.
