Quantity: 3-4 sauce lovers
Preparation time: 25 minutes
Severity: light
To prepare you need:

  • 350 g cauliflower florets (about half a larger cauliflower)
  • ½ onion (chopped)
  • 2 crushed garlic cloves
  • 120 ml unsweetened almond milk (or coconut milk if you prefer a creamier sauce)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • herbs of your choice, such as parsley (to serve, optional)
  • food processor or blender

How to make the sauce?

Steam the cauliflower florets for 10-15 minutes, or longer if necessary, until the cauliflower is soft. Set aside to cool. Then brown the onion in a pan, without the oil. Use a little water if necessary. When the onion is translucent, add the crushed garlic and heat for another 2-3 minutes. As a final step, place the steamed cauliflower in a food processor or blender with the browned onion and garlic, lemon juice, almond or coconut milk and seasoning and blitz to a smooth sauce. Serve alongside potatoes or enjoy with your favourite gluten-free pasta.
