Cauliflower

Directions
1. Add all ingredients to a large pot and bring to a boil
2. Puree ingredients in batches in a blender until smooth.
3. After the food processor, I put my mixture back into a large soup pot.
4. Add more salt, pepper, crushed red pepper and herbs and season to taste.
5. Simmer 15 minutes and serve. In large batches, I can easily store my white sauce, and use it as a substitute.
A slightly different version can be found at Healthy White Sauce Alternative (White Beans and Cauliflower).
The cooking process is slightly different, but both are great for a white sauce substitute. It has been used to make the following dishes on youblogwhatyoueat.com!!
