Creamy Cauliflower Sauce

Pasta with Cauliflower Sauce

(iPhone captured. Seriously do not have time to whip out the SLR camera anymore.)

Whoa, two posts in one day. This is pretty crazy since I haven’t posted anything since July. I got a lot of requests for this recipe so I figured it would be a useful posts for people, especially since its the new year and people are looking for healthy alternatives. Alfredo and bechamel sauce are so decadent and delicious, but definitely heavy and calorie dense. This sauce was creamy, velvety and full of flavor, I didn’t miss the traditional cream sauce at all. Enjoy, I think you’ll love this one. And it’s only 5 ingredients!!! So easy.

Creamy Cauliflower Sauce

1 head of cauliflower, cut into florets
1 clove of garlic
1 tablespoon of butter
1 tablespoon of lemon juice
salt and pepper

Boil the cauliflower florets in salted boiling water until fork tender, 5-7 minutes. Next, using a slotted spoon, add cauliflower to blender. Pour some of the cauliflower water into the blender and puree for 1 minute. Add 1 clove of garlic, 1 tbsp of butter and some lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper. Add splash of cauliflower water until your desired consistency. (If you want really creamy, add a splash of heavy cream/half and half or milk OR a splash of extra virgin olive oil for silky goodness). Add any herbs or spices to change it up.

Serve with pasta, quinoa, rice, risotto, meat, vegetables. The options are endless!

    Yum! I can’t wait to try this. I’m also using coconut milk as a suistbtute for heavy cream in our pumpkin pie this year. Hopefully it will turn out well. Happy Thanksgiving, my dear.
