This creamy cauliflower sauce is hearty, a touch spicy, healthy and delicious. This creamy cauliflower sauce is hearty, a touch spicy, healthy and delicious.
Number of Servings: 6


    -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


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:
For the cauliflower base:


-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.
