Lactose-free Cauliflower "Alfredo" Sauce

Introduction: Lactose-free Cauliflower "Alfredo" Sauce

About: For more about my costumes, crafts and general craziness, check out my blog:

This creamy cauliflower sauce is a healthy lactose-free alternative to Alfredo sauce.

I use lactose-free milk, but you can use a milk substitute like soy milk to make this a fully vegan sauce.

My good friend, Jess, taught me this recipe and encouraged me to post an instructable about it so others can enjoy it too!
