Creamy Cauliflower Sauce

Doesn't it looks creamy?!  From the look at it you won't know that it is only make with cauliflower as the main ingredient! :D A healthier choice from the traditional white cream sauce that use for cooking pasta and baked rice etc....I've tried out 2 recipes on baked rice and pizza using this creamy cauliflower and they turned out awfully good! Let's start with this simple creamy sauce first before going on how to prepare the both main dishes :D

  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 600gm cauliflower florets
  • 5 cups water
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 cup soy milk
  • 1 tbsp olive oil

  1. Saute the garlic with butter in a pan over low heat until soft and fragrant but not browned. Remove from heat and set aside.
  2. Bring the water to boil in a pot. Add cauliflower and cook, covered, for 8 mins until tender. Do not drain.
  3. Spoon the cauliflower pieces into the blender. Add 1 cup of the cooking liquid, saute garlic/butter, olive oil, salt, pepper and milk. Blend until sauce is very smooth. Add more/less liquid depending on how thick you want the sauce to be. Use immediately or chilled for later use.
Look out for the next post on how to make use of this creamy cauliflower sauce!....
