This is an ode to broccoli, which has played the villain role for far too…
Who knew vegetables could taste this good?! This creamy sauce uses cauliflower as a base and feels decadent without making you feel weighed down. Try it out with your picky eaters!
It’s also a great base for extra additions, we like to top it with things like garlicy sauteed mushrooms, spinach or some shelled peas. The options are endless.
Thanks to our vegan friend Susan for this delicious recipe, give it a try for yourself:
