Cauliflower Alfredo Sauce

Start with a head of cauliflower and cook it in 2 cups of chicken broth.
In another pan, sautee onions and garlic in a bit of olive oil

When its all cooked, throw it all into a blender (broth and all) and add in a 1/4 cup parmesan cheese, blend until pureed.

1 cup = 1 point!

And if you want JUST an Alfredo sauce, here ya go:

1/2 cup skim milk
3 Laughing Cow Creamy Swiss Light wedges
1/2 T. parmesan cheese
1/2 T. Molly McButter
1 pinch garlic

Throw everything in a small sauce pan. Stir until melted and creamy, about 10minutes.

That's what I do with mine because I like decadent It's very good. So far this batch I've made creamed spinach, super rich and comforty, and broccoli and veggie chicken with the sauce. It's on the plan for today again. Hope you like it.

just got back from the store buying the ingredients. Is 2 cups of chicken broth really enough?

I had a medium sized head of cauliflower, and 2 cups of broth was plenty to cook it in. You don't want a runny sauce.

I made this last week and was surprised at just how good it was! Next time I make it, though, (this weekend!), I'm going to add some Laughing Cow. I like decadent, too.

What are you serving yours over, Matilda?

oh my gosh...thanks for the "just alfredo" recipe Ruth..i made it according to directions and got "alfredo soup" cause it was very liquidy and not thick so i assumed there was a bit of corn starch added to thicken it?? But when i did and it thickened up..it was amazing!!! i had it mixed in with prawns and green beans..so good!

No corn starch on SBD, especially in Phase 1. I threw my box out years ago.

Is there an acceptable substitution, maybe arrowroot? Where did I hear that (was it Atkins)?

Egg yolk would thicken it.

I think you might need to check your measurements. I've made it several times just like it was written and have NEVER had it be soupy. *shrugs* Arrowroot is fine to use as a thickener on SB...but it's pretty expensive. I'd just let it simmer until it thickens a little and skip adding any thickener, personally.
