As I was trying to come up with something a little different and along the lines of a creamed potato dish, I hit on making creamed cauliflower. It turned out to be absolutely delicious, as well as being easy to make. The nutmeg adds a subtle flavor that really makes it special. This would go great with your Thanksgiving or other holiday turkey or with just plain roasted chicken. I’ve tried this with both Mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses and while I prefer the Mozzarella, both are very good.
2 cups Cauliflower, chopped
1/4 cup Heavy Whipping Cream
2 tablespoons Butter
1/4 teaspoon Nutmeg, ground
1/2 teaspoon Sugar Substitute
1/2 cup Mozzarella Cheese, shredded or Parmesan Cheese, shredded
If using fresh cauliflower, par boil for two minutes or put in the microwave, one cup at a time, for 1 minute each cup. Melt butter in a medium sauce pan and add the cauliflower. Add the cream, nutmeg, salt and sugar substitute and stir well. Cook over medium heat for about 10 minutes, stirring frequently. Use the spoon to break any large pieces up into smaller pieces. When almost fork tender, add the mozzarella cheese and stir until melted. Continue cooking and stirring until the sauce is thick. Serve hot.
