White Sauce

Creamy Cauliflower...

white sauce

Use this white sauce as a soup or for lasagne or just a dollop on top of some baked salmon...


half a head of cauliflower
3 heaped T duck fat
3 heaped T ghee
1C broth (lamb or chicken)


Cut off all the fibrous parts of the cauliflower
Place the florets into your pot with the fat and ghee
Cook over medium heat, stirring as the fat melts... combine it all together
Reduce to a low heat, place lid on pot and cook for 10-15 minutes... stirring occasionally
Add the broth once the cauliflower has started to soften
Replace the lid and cook until very soft

Pour mix into your Thermomix, blend 20 seconds speed 8
Add salt and pepper to taste, combine10 seconds speed 4

This is very thick, just right for a white sauce for lasagne or to dollop... If you want to use it for a thinner soup, add another cup of broth.
