Creamy Cauliflower Sauce Recipe

Creamy Cauliflower Sauce Recipe


I’ve always been a picky eater. Always. I’ve never cared for some fruits, wild game, and you can forget about vegetables. So obviously, when the whole cauliflower fad was going around, I wasn’t the least bit interested. I saw posts for cauliflower crust, and cauliflower rice. There could have very well been a post for cauliflower ice cream, who knows. All I knew was that to me it was probably the least liked vegetable, so I wanted no part. Then I saw a recipe for a cauliflower cream sauce…that got my attention. As a mom I am constantly trying to trick my kids into eating healthier so they can get the nutriton that I had fought against my whole childhood. I hide vegetables in my spaghetti sauce, so why NOT in a cream sauce too? My kids love it, I love it…it has been a big win all around! I hope you and your family enjoy it as well! I personally love to pair it with some penne pasta and shrimp, but it would go well with anything you would normally pair a cream sauce with.

Total Time: Ten Minutes

Makes: Three Servings


What You Will Need:

1 head of cauliflower (make sure to take off the outer leaves)


How To Make:

First cook your pasta according to the package instructions. While that is cooking, chop up your cauliflower into quarters. Chop off the  florets of the cauliflower and cut your stems into one inch pieces so that it will cook evenly.
Put your chopped cauliflower into a steaming basket and let it steam for about five to ten minutes. you should be able to poke the cauliflower easily with a fork. Take the cauliflower from your basket, and put it in a blender or food processor. Puree your cauliflower until it is nice and smooth. If you want the “sauce” a litter thinner you may add some water. Divide it all into one cup portions. If you are not going to use it right away, freeze it for later use!



* If you don’t have a steaming basket available, you can add your chopped cauliflower directly to boiling water and let it cook for about three to six minutes.
* You can also pre season your sauce before freezing if you’d like. (I’ve included a video that adds a bit more pazazz to this basic recipe)

Eating For A Healthy Heart

As people become more aware of making healthy choices diet comes in to play in a big way. This article “Eating For A Healthy Heart” offers tips for heart healthy diet choices. There are additional links below so that you can better educate yourself on eating for a healthy heart.

Bad cholesterol or a bad diet is something we all experience at some point in time. It’s impossible to eat healthy our whole lives, even though we may try hard to do it. Eating healthy for your heart is something everyone should try to do, especially when it comes to restoring health and reducing heart attacks.

Eating For A Healthy Heart – Your Heart And Food

We know these things for sure – a diet high in saturated fats will help raise your cholesterol, which is a risk factor for heart disease. People that are obese are more prone to heart disease. A diet high in sodium may elevate your blood pressure, leading to inflammation and even heart disease.

To help prevent heart disease and improve your health, put the tips below to good use.

Eating For A Healthy Heart – Eat Plenty Of Fish

Herring, sardines, and salmon are all excellent sources of Omega 3 essential fatty acids. Other fish are great to, although Omega 3 may help to get your cholesterol down to a healthier level.

Eating For A Healthy Heart – Choosing Healthy fats And Oils

Saturated fat will increase the risk of heart disease. It’s found in meat, butter, and even coconut oil. You should avoid them until your cholesterol levels are down and you are at a healthy weight. Even those that love red meats can enjoy seafood and nuts for their main sources of protein.

Monounsaturated fats such as olive oils will help you to protect your heart. Olive oil is an ideal choice for cooking, dressing, or even as a dipping sauce.

Eating For A Healthy Heart – Plenty of fiber

Fiber can help you control your cholesterol. You can find fiber in whole grain products to help control sugar absorption as well, which will help you keep your digestive system healthy.

Eating For A Healthy Heart – Choosing carbohydrates

Eating for your heart involves staying away from sugary foods such as candy, cookies, cakes, and pastries. Eating a lot of sugar isn’t good for your heart disease at all. Healthy carbohydrates involve whole grain breads, whole grain pasta, brown rice, and a lot of vegetables. You should make fruits and vegetables the main aspect of your diet.

Eating For A Healthy Heart – Healthy cooking methods

Stir frying and sautéing with olive oil or canola oil are both great methods, as you shouldn’t dip your food in batter and fry it anymore. If you cook chicken, remove the skin and bake it in the oven in foil.

=>Prevention.com – No Fail Fish<=

Instead of frying your fish you should always bake it. Steaming your vegetables can help maintain the most nutrients. You should use cream sauces or lots of butter anymore either. When you eat vegetables, try squeezing lemon juice on them or using your favorite seasonings.

As you make the proper changes to your diet, keep in mind that it takes time for them to become habits. Eating healthy is always great for your body and your lifestyle, especially when it comes to your heart and the prevention of heart disease.
