Since beginning my low sodium diet i've noticed some things are just harder than others to pull off as a low sodium version. That can definitely be the case with a low sodium alfredo sauce. This low sodium alfredo sauce recipe is a rice milk and cream cheese version of the classic French sauce, but works well for people on a low sodium diet. If you're looking for a good homemade low sodium alfredo sauce recipe, give this recipe a try and let me know what you think in the comments!
Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add flour and use a whisk to make a paste then add minced garlic.
Slowly add rice milk, whisking constantly to prevent lumps. Let mixture come to a boil and thicken.
Add cream cheese and whisk to mix well. Remove from heat.
Add 1/3 cup parmesan cheese, nutmeg, and lemon juice. Mix well.
Serve over pasta, chicken, steamed vegetables, etc.
Garnish with chopped basil and remaining 2 tablespoons parmesan cheese.
