Dr. Oz Fettuccine Alfredo Recipe with Cauliflower by Dave Lieberman

Doctor Oz said that Fettucine Alfredo is not high on his list of healthy options or Weight Loss Tips, but he made a Healthy Fettuccine Alfredo Recipe with Cauliflower, the “mystery ingredient”.  Cauliflower is a cruciferous vegetable, which means it helps to reduce your risk of breast cancer.  Dave Lieberman’s Healthy Fettuccine Alfredo with Cauliflower Recipe, part of his book The 10 Things You Need to Eat: And More Than 100 Easy and Delicious Ways to Prepare Them, is very rich and creamy, but there is absolutely no cream or butter in the recipe, which is why it is a great addition to your Recipes for Diets and Weight Loss Tips!  All you need for this healthy recipe are six ingredients: cauliflower, whole wheat pasta, olive oil, minced shalllots, chicken stock, and parmesan cheese.  If you substitute traditional Fettuccine Alfredo (which has 850 calories per serving), whit this healthy fettuccine alfredo dish, you will only get 455 calories (half the calories basically) and much less saturated fat.  I know what I am having for dinner tonight that will taste delicious and help me with my Weight Loss!

Dr. Oz’s Healthy Diet Fettuccine Alfredo Recipe by Dave Lieberman

Ingredients:

1/2 lb cooked whole wheat pasta

1/2 head cauliflower, cored removed and broken into small florets

2 tbsp olive oil

2 shallots, minced

1/2 cup chicken stock

1 cup grated parmesan cheese, plus more for garnish

Salt and black pepper to taste

Directions:

1.  Cook the cauliflower for 20 minutes until it is soft.

2.  Cook the shallots over medium heat until translucent (around 10 minutes).  Add the chicken stock and continue to cook for another few minutes.

3.  Once the shallots and cauliflower has cooled, pop it into your blender and puree until it is perfectly silky and smooth.  You don’t want any chunks, because this is your alfredo sauce!

4.  Toss the alfredo sauce over your whole wheat pasta and add the parmesan cheese.  Serve warm immediately… definitely a happy addition to my Weight Loss Tips!

    How many servings in the recipe of the healthy Fettucine Alfredo w/cauliflower?

    Janet – I would guess that it should be enough for 4-5 people. But it all depends on how much each person eats! I would serve it as a side dish to a protein (like with grilled chicken breast).

    I made this a few weeks ago for my family. Wasn’t sure it would pass the taste test of my two daughters. Well, it did! Can’t believe how good it was. Doesn’t taste like a diet food. Don’t name it that. It’s too good to be called diet food. I suggest Super Delicious (and Healthful) Fettuccine CauliFredo. My daughters have even requested to have this tomorrow night. An encore performance! Doesn’t get any better than that.
    Thanks!
