31 Min.


1 tbsp olive oil
6 cloves garlic, minced
1 head cauliflower, broken into florets
2 ½ cups vegetable broth
1 tsp sea salt
½ tsp ground black pepper
½ cup almond milk
½ cup shredded parmesan cheese** omit parmesan if vegan


Heat the olive oil over medium-high heat in a skillet and cook the garlic until tender and fragrant, about 2 minutes. Be careful not to burn it. Remove from heat and set aside.

Add the cauliflower florets into a deep stockpot and then add the vegetable broth. Cover and cook over high heat for 8-10 minutes, or until the cauliflower is tender when pierced with a fork. Do not drain.

Transfer the cauliflower florets to a blender (or food processor). Then, add 3/4 cup of the hot vegetable broth you used to cook the cauliflower, followed by the sautéed garlic and oil, sea salt, pepper, and almond milk.

Blend for 1-2 minutes until the sauce is very smooth. If the sauce is too thick, you can add equal parts almond milk and vegetable broth. You may have to do this in batches, depending on the size of your blender. The consistency should be thick, but pourable.

Serve hot as you would a cheese sauce.
