I'm a computer consultant and I taught myself to cook with no help! Then, on advice from friends, I wrote a cookbook with original recipes I made for my family in our tiny kitchen and as cheaply as I could! In 2011, I used a Paleo lifestyle to lose over 80lbs in 8 months! My family and I have become so healthy this way! My cooking helped me do it, and I wrote a second cookbook and a website sharing my recipes with anyone going Paleo or a low-carb lifestyle such as Keto. I cook for a family of 4 and its quite a journey!

    I think this looks delicious! But it probably shouldn’t be filed under “non-dairy”. =)

    Made this tonight… OMG! SO freaking GOOD!!! And I didn’t have any heavy cream on hand, either. I used about 1/2 C of whole milk and 1/4 C of coconut cream in place of the 3/4 C of heavy cream. I’m sure with the real cream, it would be… dare I say?… ‘creamier’? But, the taste is fantastic, regardless of the consistency being different. I really loved this recipe. I’ll definitely keep this one. Thanks!!

    Any idea how well this would freeze?

    I’m allergic to cauliflower. Any suggestions for a substitute?

  6. posted by Kristin Jekielek on February 5, 2012

    Broccoli is a good sub for cauliflower, or possibly turnips.

    Any idea where and when the broccoli goes in? I figure it goes with the chicken and cauliflower but it doesn’t say! Also, I’m going to use the substitute I heard about of 3/4 milk ( i use coconut) and 1/3 cup of butter/ghee for each cup of heavy cream. Sounds like it should work OK…..LMK on the broccoli

    I made this tonight for Superbowl!! Soooo good. Will make again! I did not add chicken as we had chicken wings and tenders on the side. I also skipped the bacon and just added more veggies. The cauliflower and broccoli do not need to be steamed beforehand. I put both in raw and they cooked well. Thanks for a great recipe!

    How much is a stick of butter?

  10. posted by Kristin Jekielek on February 8, 2012

    1 stick of butter = 8 tablespoons

    Made this tonight for my family — everyone enjoyed! I microwave steamed the cauliflower & broccoli together, but I agree with Cynthia that they don’t really need to be steamed. They probably would have cooked just fine in the oven. I also used a 14 oz can of coconut milk instead of the coconut + heavy cream. Turned out with nice consistency.

    Would this turn out OK without the eggs? We can’t eat eggs :(

    Hi there,,,:)…I’m still at the learning stage of Paleo. We can use whole cream?
    Milk? ……Thank you. :)

    Diane – I’m still relatively new also, but no, true Paleo is dairy-free, but there are some Primal recipes on here too it seems (Primal is a little more lenient, from what I’ve read). But I still plan to have an occasional “cheat” meal with dairy. :)

    Heavy cream, butter and cheese…why are you bothering with a PALEO website?

  16. posted by Kylee on July 24, 2012

    This is NOT paleo. I’m actually bothered this is listed on this type of site. There are some of us who HAVE to eat paleo for medical purposes and this recipe can give newbees a sense of false hope. Not everyone is smart enough to call their doctor and get approval for unsure recipes. My son has a seizure disorder and had I found this recipe when we first started, I could have sent him into a potentially dangerous seizure thinking I was following the rules. Though the recipe may be a “healthier” option, it is by no means paleo and should be listed in a subsection or not at all.

    Take out all the dairy and you still have a great recipe.

    The Paleo Nazis on here need to stop being negative. Paleo is not a religion, it shouldn’t be treated as such. Just because YOU don’t consume dairy at all doesn’t mean that all of us have to follow that way. It’s about eating things that don’t make you sick, if someone wants dairy let them have it. Grow up and stop being so dogmatic about it.

    I think the point is the name of this site is FAST PALEO not fast primal!! With the rules of Paleo this is would not be considered Paleo!!! So when spending time looking for recipes that are truely Paleo it can be a tad irritating to keep winding up with recipes that ARE NOT PALEO!! Just saying!! May just be error with the way the site is set-up but never the less people have a right to make a comment on how they believe this info is wrong or miscategorized!! Googled PALEO ALFREDO RECIPE so far I have been here twice and neither recipe has been Paleo!! True story!

    I agree with the other “Paleo-Nazis”. I’m by no means a strict Paleoist, but I do follow the general guidelines by cutting out ALL DAIRY, ALL GRAINS, ALL LEGUMES, processed foods and refined sugars.

    The only reason for the complaints is that we are searching for Paleo recipes and this website comes up through fastpaleo when it’s NOT Paleo. If it were cataloged correctly (or posted on a completely different website not including Paleo in the name), then we wouldn’t care at all. It’s false advertising. I will not support FastPaleo, unless you put disclaimers at the top of every recipe. Do not claim something it is not. That’s something we leave up to the politicians! Thanks!

    P.S. Paleo peeps – you can make an “alfredo” sauce with cashew cream, garlic sauteed in olive oil, sea salt and nutritional yeast (which may not be 100% Paleo, but it is still alkaline – one of the goals of going Paleo to keep an alkaline ph balance).

    If y’all don’t like or don’t want to eat something on this site, don’t. No new to be “Paleo-er than Thou”, and certainly no need to imply that you are any “smarter” than others who “have” to eat Paleo. Stop being everybody’s mommy, and mind your own kitchen. Ugh. So annoying.

    So, that is 3/4 C Heavy Cream AND a stick of butter? Or is it OR a stick of butter?
