  • 1/2 tsp. pepper (more to taste)
  • 1.5  cups cashew milk (or more to taste) made with the NutraMilk
  • pinch of freshly grated nutmeg
  • fresh parsley for serving


For cashew Milk

  • Start by making fresh cashew milk with the NutraMilk:
    • Place cashews in the NutraMilk container.
    • Press Butter cycle, set for 3 minutes.
    • Press Start.
    • Open the container lid, add water and replace lid.
    • Press Mix (do not change the default Mix time).
    • Press Start.
    • Press Dispense.
    • Press Start and open spigot to fill your storage container.

For sauce

  • 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!
