How to make Cauliflower Alfredo Sauce

The key ingredient of this broccoli shrimp alfredo is the cauliflower alfredo sauce. It is made from scratch using cauliflower. This is where the Osterkitchen blender comes in handy. We love the settings of this kitchen blender. It offers 3 food modes (smoothie, shake, and food chop) and 3 texture settings (thin, medium, and thick), plus manual settings for more control, so you can make everything from drinks to soups and salsa at just the right consistency.

For this cauliflower alfredo sauce, we went with the manual settings and chose medium and then thin for texture.

To make the alfredo sauce:

  • Place the cooked cauliflower florets in the blender
  • Add in the broth, milk, sauteed garlic with olive oil, milk, onion powder, parmesan cheese, salt, and pepper.
  • Blend using your preferred settings until smooth or to the consistency you prefer.
  • Pour over pasta.

Add the broccoli floret in a pot of salted boiling water to cook for about 3-5 mins, depending on how well done you like your broccoli, remove and set aside.

Sautee garlic in a non-stick pan with 2 tablespoons of olive oil on low heat until garlic is soft and fragrant, about 1-2 minutes. Remove and set aside.

Meanwhile, place the cauliflower in a pot containing the broth and allow to cook until cauliflower is fork-tender. about 7-8 minutes. Do not drain.

Transfer the cauliflower using a slotted spoon into the Oster Blender. Add 1 cup of the broth the cauliflower was cooked in, the sauteed garlic with the oil, along with the milk, onion powder, parmesan cheese, salt, and pepper. Blend until sauce is smooth. If the sauce is too thick, add more broth 1/2 cup at a time.
