Cuisine: American
Servings: 5 cups sauce
Author: Basil and Bubbly


  • 4 cloves garlic chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon butter
  • 5 cups frozen cauliflower florets roughly 15 ounces
  • 6 cups water
  • ½ cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper


  • Bring the water to a boil in a large pot. Add the cauliflower and cook until soft, around 10 minutes.
  • In a small pan, cook the garlic in the butter over medium-low for 5 minutes, or until fragrant. Make sure not to burn it, as that will make your sauce bitter.
  • Drain the cauliflower, reserving ½ cup of cooking liquid.
  • Add the cauliflower, reserved liquid, milk, salt, pepper, and garlic/butter mix to a blender. Blend until smooth.
