"Creamy" sauces??

Recommended Posts

As in alfredo sauce to top spaghetti, or more of a dipping sauce or sandwich topping?  I found the recipe below, but it won't be white

I've made "alfredo avocado sauce before, and its delicious, but it not a substitute that satisfies an alfredo calling.

 

Oh,there's the recipe below.  I've made it pre-W30 and it was GOOD as a sub alfredo and it reheated well in leftovers (zucchini noodles, broccoli and chicken drowned in it), but not sure if it would be as good w/o the touch of cheese.  However, the author does say you can leave it out:

For white dipping sauces or sandwich spreads, I use paleo mayo as a base and then google from there.  I've made tangy fish taco sauce, spicy ranch, regular ranch, and i'm trying a horseradish version this weekend.  The recipes are easy, and i totally eyeball them.  its mostly mayo, then some acid, and add appropriate seasonings.  For ranch, I do dill, parsley, and garlic with lemon juice, for spicy ranch variations, its lemon or lime juice, and a combo of cayenne, chili powder, cumin, chipotle, hot sauce, etc all depending on what type of hot I want. Fish taco sauce was lime, cumin, chili powder and dill.

you could probably skip the nutrional yeast and maybe up the seasonings to help cover the cauliflower taste.  I just made cauliflower "cous cous" (mine was too small to be called "rice") and it was very easy to cover the cauli taste with seasonings, so I don't think it would be too hard to do in the faux-fredo recipe.

Coconut milk subs well in most recipes that call for cream.  Here is a pork chop recipe in a mushroom cream sauce that is easy to make and very tasty.

And if Indian-inspired recipes are of interest, try this one for chicken in turmeric cream sauce.

Melissa Joulwan (author of Well Fed and the blog clothesmakethegirl) has a "sunshine sauce" that is really yummy (well, I've only made an AIP adaptation, but I'm sure the real recipe is better than my adapted one). Worth googling, I think it's on her blog

I second the Well Fed and Well Fed 2 recommendation. Both have some really delicious sauces, not really an alfredo replacement, but one is coconut milk + Morrocan spice blend with veggies that is out of this world - sometimes I throw in leftover protein too. It's not a thick pour over sauce, rather a saucy dish but we really find it delicious.

 

Well Fed has Creamy Spice Market Kale (the recipe I describe above), homemade mayo with other additions = Spicy Secret Sauce (Hubz favorite), Sunshine Sauce (kind of like peanut sauce) and more.

 

Well Fed 2 has Lizard Sauce, one of my favorites. I haven't even made most of the sauces in here yet but have heard so many raves!

I used this paleo bechamel in my moussaka this week and it was delicious! Things I did differently -- My cauliflower was fresh and "riced" as I keep a container ready to go in the fridge. That helped it absorb the liquid better, I think. I think I used 2 cups of cauliflower to 1 cup of the liquid: http://blog.stuffimakemyhusband.com/2013/05/moussaka-grain-free-dairy-free.html
