Every now and again I come across something so good I want to use it on everything. I usually only cook a recipe once or twice before moving on to another culinary delight. This is how cooking ninja skills grow. This dairy-free Garlic Cream Sauce is just so fantastic and indulgent to forget about though!
I’m sharing the recipe for just the sauce below. It can become a permanent fixture on your meals. Toss it with a skillet of ground beef, plantain, and kale. Drizzle it over tender roasted carrots, mixed it with zucchini noodles and shrimp, and toss it with steamed broccoli which is totally reminiscent of broccoli with cheese sauce.
The best part of this creamy, flavorful sauce is that it’s made of great for you veggies! If you’re stumped on where to find truffle salt, amazon will usually come through.
If you’re looking for a lower-carb option, you can try making this recipe with cauliflower in place of the sweet potato but it may not be as creamy. I would add just a half cup of coconut milk at first and then determine if the cauliflower sauce needs more liquid.
