I’ve gone and done it now…I’ve made something not only my 2 year old toddler liked (as well as the rest of my kids), but, my ‘set in his ways’ dad even liked it! Creamy, garlicky, bacon-y, all the right things! I have so many many awesome ideas for this little piece of heaven!
I hope you all will forgive my terrible photos…I’m not all fancy with the food photos just yet. Sometimes I have some luck…but, sometimes I forget to take photos until I’ve already started devouring my food…someday I will learn.
There's something about creams and sauces...something that just says home cooking. It screams of comfort food. After trying an AIP compliant bacon alfredo sauce through an online company, I was really inspired to do this one myself...mostly because it was REALLY expensive!
Well folks! I did it! I have so many many ideas for this one, but, for tonight, I put it on steamed broccoli and all of my kids LOVED it. Even my very old school, "I don't want any of that new kind of food stuff" dad ate all of it, and admitted to liking it. SCORE!!
But seriously, for my leftovers, I am thinking of just simply baking off a sweet potato and pouring some of this loveliness on top. Don't judge...it's been dipping into the low 30's here at night in Arizona and my body just can't handle the cold!
Hope y'all enjoy this one as much as we did!
- 1/2 pound chopped bacon smaller chop
- 1/2 minced onion
- 2-3 tbsp fresh minced garlic
- 1 cup coconut cream
- 1 cup coconut milk
- 2 tbsp tapioca flour
- 1 tsp salt to taste
In a heavy bottomed pan (preferably cast iron), cook off chopped bacon, once cooked set aside on a paper towel lined plate. Reserve about 1 Tbsp of the oil in the pan.
Add minced onions and let cook until translucent, then, add garlic and tapioca flour and mix well (I used a whisk) to make sure there are no chunks.
Slowly add coconut milk and cream, continually stirring. Depending on how thick or thin you want your sauce, you may want to hold back on adding all of your coconut cream/milk, or, you might end up adding more.
Once it is to your desired consistency, add bacon back in, then, add salt to taste.
*from this point, you could also add in some nutritional yeast and some herbs, depending what you're using the sauce for.*
