this week I bring you the best thing since sliced bread (which to me, wasn’t that big of a deal to begin with, but alright).
healthy alfredo sauce.
now, I am a firm believer that healthy things don’t taste less delicious than their unhealthy counterparts.. but this is not a Cheesecake Factory alfredo sauce. that being said, it also will not be clogging your arteries like a Cheesecake Factory alfredo sauce – so it all evens out.
make sure you have a blender or food processor for this endeavor. other than that, all you need is a pot of boiling water.
1 head of cauliflower, chopped
2 Tbsp butter (that’s 1/4 of a stick)
1/2 c chicken stock
2 cloves garlic, minced
~1 c of milk
a few dashes of hot sauce
salt and pepper
parmesan cheese, optional but recommended
boil the cauliflower for about 10min until soft. drain and put into blender with butter, garlic, and chicken stock. once that is blended well, add just enough milk to make the consistency you would like. for me, it took about a cup. the last three ingredients should be added to create whatever level of seasoning you prefer, but I highly recommend a bit of parmesan cheese to deceive your brain (however futile) into thinking about Cheesecake factory alfredo.
pasta, green beans steamed in the microwave, and pre-cooked chicken – fast and delicious for a week night!
