Alfredo Sauce With 78% Fewer Calories? OK, But Is It Any Good?

Lots of people like Alfredo sauce, but since it’s mostly cream and butter they don’t like the calories. Daphne Oz, the author of The Happy Cook, has a recipe that cuts 78% of the calories. Is it any good – meaning does it taste like anything a human wants to eat? I don’t know but I’m tempted to find out because the magic ingredient is cauliflower. If you’re making a face and going “Ewwwwwwwwww …” you might want to reconsider. For example, I have a cauliflower and potato soup that I make often and it’s delish! You can’t taste the cauliflower but it adds thickening to any dish with almost zero calories.

The Trimmed-Down Alfredo Recipe

> Puree 4 cups of cooked cauliflower, 1 cup of milk and 2 T of butter.
>Meanwhile, saute 1 minced shallot in 1 T of olive oil for two minutes
> Add 1/2 cup of white wine and let everything simmer for two minutes.
> Stir in the puree.

Oz says you can use this sauce anywhere you would use Alfredo – like fettucini Alfredo. I’m tempted but I don’t like wine so will have to think about this one.
