Caulifredo sauce, why did I wait so long to try you?

I have seen many recipes on Pinterest about faux Alfredo sauce and healthier versions of the butter and cream filled awesomeness that is Alfredo sauce.  I finally caved and gave it a try, much to my surprise it is really, really good!  I tried it first without any dairy and decided to add the Parmesan cheese to it for a little more pizzazz.  I will have to warn you though, full disclosure and all, I love garlic.  I use garlic in everything I possibly can and a lot of it.  I will be making this again and very soon, since I got more cauliflower in my co-op share this weekend.

1 head of cauliflower cut into florets

8 cloves of fresh garlic, minced

4 cups of broth ( I used my chicken bone and feet broth)

1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese ( I used a little less)

salt and pepper to taste

bacon grease, butter, ghee or coconut oil ( to cook garlic)

Melt bacon grease, add minced garlic cook until almost crispy, set aside.  In a soup pot add broth and cauliflower to pot and cook until cauliflower is very tender, using a slotted spoon put cooked cauliflower into Blender or food processor, add garlic and 12 ounces of the broth and blend until creamy.  Add Parmesan and blend until smooth, add salt and pepper to taste.  I had baked a spaghetti squash and grilled some chicken thighs to go with my Califredo sauce, which went great together!!
