so this is awkward. 

awkward for one because my blog title is capitalized and i hate capital letters. but i really, really needed to emphasize the fact that this ish is made from freakin' cauliflower. i'm still stunned.

awkward for two because this stuff is so good, i only took two pictures. two. and one doesn't even count because it's nothing but cauliflower almost boiling in a pot. hence the picture below.

i know i'm sorry. when i started this, i thought man, i should blog this! as long as it didn't turn out tasting like a foot, that is. 

well i'm here to tell you it didn't and i may not ever buy alfredo sauce again. or even the light version! (even though i have three jars still sitting in my pantry.) this is so simple to do & doesn't include any milk, cream, butter, half & half, or any thing you would think.

the boys were watching the nc state game last night so they ordered pizza. have you ever looked at pizza in the face and said no? and papa john's pizza at that? i have. and it was hard. but my meal of zucchini noodles & sauteed chicken with the cauliflower alfredo came in right around 360 calories for a big plateful. we all know pizza can't do that.

so there it is. in all its glory. intertwined between the savory zucchini and chicken with a little bit of garlic. so how do you make this sweet, sweet nectar? read on.

cauliflower alfredo sauce

what you need:

1 head of cauliflower
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1/2 cup of parmesan cheese
1/4 cup of chicken broth
1/4 cup of cauliflower boiled water

what you do:

break up the cauliflower into small florets & boil for about 20 minutes (even longer if you have time). once it's done boiling, use a spoon with holes to get it from the water. don't use a colander because you need that water! throw it in your blender, and make sure to keep the boiled water nearby. toss in the salt, parmesan cheese, chicken broth, and 1/4 cup remains of the boiled water. 

blend with my ninja blender. (that thing is magical.)

it's done. 

seriously, could it get easier? i stuck a spoon into the blender expecting to be disappointed because i hadn't added anything "bad." by the time it was over with, i was practically licking it out of the blender. 

okay, i'll stop telling you how weird i am. go try this now.
