This recipe is a quick, easy, and healthy take on one of my favorite restaurant pasta dishes. The cauliflower alfredo is super easy, and it comes out so creamy and decadent, you don’t even slightly realize you’re just eating pureed cauliflower. The sun-dried tomatoes add an extra layer of umami, and the pesto pine nut parm adds the cheesiness you crave, with a hint basil. This is definitely a keeper.
Before going vegan, I was obsessed with this amped-up macaroni and cheese dish from a local restaurant. They call their dish “Sweet Home Alabama”, and it’s basically macaroni and cheese served with chunks of fried chicken and BBQ sauce on top. Keeping with their Lynyrd Skynyrd theme, but adding my own cruelty-free twist, I decided to call this piece of vegan heaven the “Free Bird”. Just think of all the chickens you’ll save by making this veganized version with carrot/potato cheese sauce and oven-fried tofu.
