For cashew Milk

- Press Start.
- Open the container lid, add water and replace lid.
- Press Mix (do not change the default Mix time).

- Sauté the minced garlic with the butter in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Cook for several minutes or until the garlic is soft and fragrant. Be careful not to brown the garlic. Remove from heat and set aside.
- Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat. Add the cauliflower, cover, and cook until cauliflower is tender when you stick a fork in it (about 8-10 minutes). Drain.
- Transfer the cauliflower to the NutraMilk. Add cashew milk, sautéed garlic/butter, salt, pepper, nutmeg. Mix for 1-2 minutes until the sauce smooth. You can add more cashew milk if it seems too thick. Toss with your favorite cooked pasta or use it as a pizza sauce or for any other dish you desire. Garnish with parsley. Enjoy!
