Ingredients

    -3 cups low sodium chicken broth
    -4 cups cauliflower florets
    -1/2 a small avocado
    -5 garlic cloves, minced
    -Garlic powder
    -Cayenne pepper (to taste)
    -3-4 tsp ranch herb mix (see link to the recipe)
    -Black pepper
    -1 tbsp salted butter
    -1/4 cup grated parmesan
    -1/4 cup 2% mozzarella cheese

Tips

This recipe relies heavily on two other blogs that provided me with the ranch herb mixture and the base for the cauliflower sauce.
For the ranch herb mix: http://wellnessmama.com/4430/14-homemade-spice-blends/
For the cauliflower base: http://pinchofyum.com/creamy-cauliflower-sauce


Directions

-In a big pot put the chicken broth and cauliflower in and bring to a boil, then let it cook and soften between 7-10 minutes.
-In a small frying pan, add the butter and minced garlic. Saute, but do not brown the garlic.
-In your blender (preferably one that can handle 6 or more cups) blend the avocado, with a sprinkling of garlic powder, until smooth.
-Once the cauliflower is fully cooked, transport it to the blender, straining away the broth, but add 1 cup of that broth to the blender and a dash of pepper.
-Puree the cauliflower and avocado until smooth, then add the buttered garlic.
-Return the sauce to a big pan and add the cheeses and ranch herbs and a touch of cayenne pepper.
-Stir until the cheese begins to get stringy.
-Pair with your favorite thing to put sauce on. I chose noodles. Next time I will have it with broccoli. You could also have it on rice or quinoa.
