Whole30 + Keto Chicken Cauliflower Alfredo Pasta Sauce

To make this silky smooth alfredo sauce I’m using a combination of my favorite ingredients. Bone broth (or stock) to add tons of deep flavor, soaked cashews to add creaminess and a touch of sweetness like you would get from heavy cream + cauliflower to thicken the sauce without altering the taste. I love using frozen cauliflower rice that has been thawed and all the water squeezed out with a nutmilk bag. So convenient!

To give it that signature alfredo flavor I also add in some garlic and kosher salt. If you like nutritional yeast that would be great to add in too!

Throw it all in a blender raw, then gently warm the sauce of the pan. So simple and perfect.

Whole30 + Keto Friendly Pasta

My newest obsession for a Whole30 + Keto friendly pasta is hearts of palm pasta! Specifically Natural Heaven since it is only 1 ingredient, hearts of palm. It has a really neutral flavor, and is already cooked. You don’t even need to rinse the pasta, just add straight to the sauce to warm through. Couldn’t be easier or tastier.

You could obviously use your favorite pasta swap out like zucchini noodles too!

Ingredients

Cauliflower Alfredo Sauce

Chicken Cauliflower Alfredo Pasta

  • 1 pound chicken breasts (I prefer skin on for better fat macros)
  • kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon ghee
  • 11/2 cups cauliflower alfredo sauce (or more to preference)
  • (2) 9-ounce bags hearts of palm pasta, spaghetti or angel hair (code TASTESLOVELY gets you 10% off!)
  • fresh basil or parsley for garnish (optional)

Instructions

Cauliflower Alfredo Sauce

  1. Combine all ingredients in your high speed blender. Blend on high speed until completely smooth, about 2 minutes.
  2. Transfer to a mason jar or airtight container. Will keep in the fridge for at least 7 days, and in the freezer for at least 6 months.

Chicken Cauliflower Alfredo Pasta

  1. Heat your cast iron skillet over medium heat for 5 minutes. Season your chicken with kosher salt.
  2. When the pan is warm, add the ghee. Cook the chicken breast (skin side DOWN if they have skin) for 5-7 minutes per side, until they have an internal temperature of 165ºF. Transfer to a plate to rest.
  3. Reduce the heat in your skillet to low. Add 1.5 cups of the cauliflower alfredo sauce to the same skillet, and gently cook it for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add in the hearts of palm pasta, and toss to coat. Cook another few minutes until the pasta is warm. If the sauce gets too thick, add more broth or water to thin it to desired consistency.
  4. Slice the chicken breasts.
  5. Serve the pasta warm, topped with the sliced chicken and fresh herbs.
  6. Leftovers will keep in an airtight container refrigerated for at least 5 days, or frozen for at least 6 months.

Notes

Cashews: You can do a quick soak on the cashews by soaking them in boiling water for 1 hour.

Cauliflower: You could steam cauliflower florets and use instead, but I prefer frozen cauliflower rice so much more! It’s easier to squeeze out all the moisture. Plus, so convenient!

Chicken: Chicken thighs would be a great swap out for chicken breasts!

Pasta: Natural Heaven Hearts of Palm Pasta is HANDS DOWN my favorite keto + Whole30 friendly pasta. (Code TASTESLOVELY gets you 10% off!) You could use zucchini noodles or your other favorite pasta swap out.

Nutritional Yeast: You could add in 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast to give it that “cheesy” flavor without adding any dairy (still Whole30 friendly!).

Dairy: If you eat dairy, this would obviously be great topped with parmesan!
