This #tastytuesday 'Alfredo' sauce is perfect for trying to find the line between hearty and healthy. A cream sauce without the cream!
Creamy Cauliflower “Alfredo” Sauce 8 large cloves garlic, minced 2 tbsp. butter 2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil 1 medium-to-large head of cauliflower 6 cups reduced-sodium vegetable broth Approximately 1 cup milk (the bigger the head of cauliflower, the more you will need) 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese salt and pepper, to taste
Melt the butter and olive oil over low heat. Add the garlic and sauté until it is soft and fragrant but not browned. Add mixture to a large blender. Bring the vegetable broth to a boil in a large pot. Lower the temperature to medium-low and cook the cauliflower, covered, until the cauliflower is fork tender (about 7 minutes). Use a slotted spoon to transfer the cauliflower pieces to the blender. Add 1 cup of the cooking liquid, salt, pepper, and milk. Blend or puree until the sauce is very smooth, adding more broth or milk if you need to thin the sauce. Add the parmesan and blend.
