We ate this over fresh pasta and LOVED it. It really has the feel of an alfredo sauce, but full of cauliflower instead of cream. Highly recommend.  

Adapted from Pinch of Yum: http://pinchofyum.com/creamy-cauliflower-sauce. I omitted the garlic to make the sauce simpler (and to cut down on the number of pans needed!) 

INGREDIENTS
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 head cauliflower
  • 6-7 cups vegetable broth or water
  • 1 teaspoon salt 
  • ½ teaspoon pepper 
  • 1 teaspoon of onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • ½ cup milk or cream 
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Cauliflower: Bring vegetable broth to boil in a large pot. Add  cauliflower and cook, covered, for 10 minutes or until cauliflower is fork tender. Do not drain.
  2. Puree: Use a slotted spoon to transfer the cauliflower pieces to the blender. Add 1 cup vegetable broth or cooking liquid, butter, salt, pepper, seasoning, and milk. Blend or puree for several minutes until the sauce is very smooth, adding more broth or milk depending on how thick you want the sauce. You may have to do this in batches. Serve hot! If the sauce looks dry, add a few drops of water, milk, or olive oil.
