Who would have thought you could make delicious alfredo sauce with cauliflower? This was surprisingly flavorful! I served it over zucchini noodles for my husband & I put it over noodles for the kids. Everyone liked it!
Original recipe from http://www.theskinnyfork.com
Recipe makes about 8 servings (I just eyed it)
1 serving = 5 weight watchers points+
= 6 weight watchers smart points
1 large head of cauliflower
2 1/2 cups 1% milk
6 oz cream cheese (I used Green Mountain Farms Whipped Cream Cheese & Greek Yogurt Blend)
2 tbsp flour
2 tsp salt
2 tbsp light butter (I used land o lakes)
6 cloves garlic minced
2 cups part skim shredded mozzarella
Salt & pepper to taste
Steam your cauliflower until it is very soft.
Put steamed cauliflower, milk, cream cheese, flour, & salt in a food processor or blender. Blend until fairly smooth. I did half at a time. Set aside.
Melt butter in a pan & saute garlic over medium high heat making sure not to burn it. After a few minutes pour your cauliflower mixture into pan & stir constantly over medium high heat.
Bring to simmer & cook until thickened stirring constantly. At this point add salt & pepper to taste.
Once thickened remove from heat. Stir in cheese, cover, & let sit for 10 minutes. It will thicken even more as it sits.
After 10 minutes pour into a large bowl & serve with noodles or zucchini noodles.
This kid gobbled it up!
