Cauliflower Pasta Sauce

I share recipes I’ve come up with or adapted on here so I can remember them.  I really like making my own pasta sauces.  It’s pretty easy and I can sneak some vegetables in there.  This cauliflower pasta sauce is so so yummy.  It can also be dairy free and it’s gluten free.

Ingredients
1 head cauliflower
1 can chicken broth
5 garlic cloves
1/2 milk or coconut milk
Juice of 1 lemon
2 tbsp Oil or butter
1 tsp salt (or to taste)
1/4 tsp pepper (or to taste)
1/4 tsp nutmeg

Pour the chicken broth into a pot with a lid.  Cut up the cauliflower and add to the pot.  Cover and bring to a boil and simmer until the cauliflower is very soft, about 10 mins.
Meanwhile peel and chop the garlic.  Add the oil or butter to a pan and sauté the garlic until soft.
Put the cauliflower, 1 cup of the broth, the garlic and the rest of the ingredients in a blender and purée until smooth.

Use as a sauce on pasta.  Or for a gluten free meal top it on spaghetti squash noddles.  You can also freeze it to use later.  My kid love this pasta and don’t even know they’re eating vegetables.
