The Best Thing You Can Do with Frozen Cauliflower

So, you stocked up on frozen veggies at the start of sheltering in place — but now it’s 8, 9, 10 weeks later (or 2 years, who even knows anymore?) and you want your freezer back. We’re with you.
Given that cauliflower can do so much (hello, rice, tacos, steak and, of course, pizza), we loaded up on that. Now that we’re ready to start using it up, we’re making it into — wait for it — cream sauce. Think of this as a cauliflower alfredo sauce — minus the cream.
It sounds crazy, but with just a few simple ingredients, you can transform cauliflower into a luscious no-dairy cream sauce that tastes super-indulgent, but actually is loaded with nutrients.
This sauce is for everyone. So, whether you’re carb-conscious, dairy-free, gluten-free, or keeping to a vegan diet, this creamy cauliflower sauce will work in your kitchen. Here’s how to put it together:

How to Use Cauliflower Cream Sauce
Now you have a basic “cream” sauce; use it as is, or try some add-ins, like cheese (or nutritional yeast for a vegan version), herbs, caramelized onions, pesto, hot sauce or harissa.
Once you’ve made this magical sauce, use it in everything:
- Toss with pasta or zucchini noodles for a healthier version of fettuccine Alfredo (add grated Parmesan cheese, if you like)
- Use it a base for a casserole
- Add sauteed chopped spinach for a super-charged “creamed” spinach — add more minced garlic!
- Melt cheddar into it and serve over steamed broccoli
- Spoon it over fish or chicken
