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)
