Thick Goopy Alfredo Sauce



2 cups (476g) cream, heavy whipping

1/2 tsp (1g) nutmeg, freshly ground

4 each (12g) garlic cloves, minced

2 cups (200g) parmesan cheese, grated

1/4 tsp (1.17g) guar gum (optional) (Buy Now)

1/4 tsp (1.5g) xanthan gum (optional) (Buy Now)

salt and fresh cracked pepper, to taste


Add the cream, nutmeg and garlic to a small sauce pan.

Simmer the cream, over low heat, until it begins to noticeably reduce in volume.

Optional Step: Guar and/or xanthan gums will help thicken the sauce. You won't need as much cheese, or as much reduction of the sauce, if you thicken it with these no carb thickeners. If you choose to use them, mix them in a bowl with the grated cheese. This will help evenly distribute the thickeners within the cheese.

Add the cheese to the cream mixture and whisk it in, until it completely melts into a creamy sauce.

Continue to allow the sauce to simmer, until it is the desired thickness.

Season with a small amount salt and pepper, then serve!
