Throwing big handfuls of salty smoked almonds in a container of chocolate soy ice cream and eating it right out of the tub. Embarrassing or brillant? I’m going to go ahead and pat myself on the back and call that one brillant, because it is insanely good.
But I’ll admit that even though this behavior is absolutely brilliant, I did feel a bit embarrassed after eating half of the ice cream and most of the almonds doing this. I felt like I needed to make something super healthy and brillant and not embarrassing for dinner. Because eating vegetables totally reverses all embarrassing eating habits right? Just humor me.
I have seen cauliflower pasta sauces on numerous different blogs. It isn’t a new concept, but I had never made it before. So finding myself searching through the fridge that is severely understocked I knew what I had to make when I saw the untouched head of cauliflower. I also knew that my husband would be less than thrilled when I told him what I made for dinner. But I dove in anyway.
Now, full disclosure here, this sauce isn’t going to fool anyone into thinking it is a traditional alfredo. It is definitely different. But it is definitely delicious! It really doesn’t have an overly cauliflower taste either. Just creamy, garlicky, peppery, basily, (yes, I said basily. I told you to humor me!) sort of alfredoy yumminess! It’s an extremely creamy pasta sauce made entirely out of cauliflower, people! My husband even ate an entire bowl! That may not make this sound very convincing but trust me, that says huge success! He also went and got a blizzard from Dairy Queen right after he finished the bowl. He doesn’t know the secret that you have to eat the ice cream BEFORE the vegetables in order for them the reverse the damage.
