* 1 lb cauliflower floret (frozen or 1 head fresh) * 1/4 cup soymilk (fat free or other) * 1/4 cup water * 1 garlic clove, minced * 1/2 teaspoon italian seasoning or 1/2 teaspoon Mrs. Dash seasoning mix * 1/4 teaspoon salt (optional) * black pepper (to taste) * 2 teaspoons cornstarch (MIXED WITH) * 2 tablespoons water
Prep Time: 10 mins
Total Time: 20 mins
1 Cook frozen cauliflower by following the package directions. Cook until it is very well done (soft!) approximately 8-10 minutes. (You may also use 1 pound of fresh cauliflower). Put into a colander and drain.
2 While cauliflower is cooking, combine soy milk, garlic, water, and seasonings, in small saucepan over medium heat. When it reaches a boil, add the cornstarch/water mixture, stirring constantly until thickened. Set aside for next step.
3 When cauliflower is cool enough for you to handle, squeeze as much water out of it as possible. (Put it into a colander and pressed it with the back of a big spoon). Next, put the cauliflower into a food processor and whir on high for a minute or just mash with a fork. Add the sauce from step 2. Process/stir until the cauliflower is creamy and smooth.
4 Check the consistency. If it is too thick for you, add a tiny bit of soymilk, mix, and check again. Too much liquid and you will end up with soup!
5 Add additional seasoning to taste. Serve hot/warm. You may need to heat it quickly in the microwave before serving.
