Well, the June gloom of Southern California is officially over! It’s hot and sunny over here, and I absolutely love it. I made it to the beach this past weekend, enjoyed some sunbathing, went on long walks around the neighborhood, and made this cauliflower nacho cheese sauce. It was glorious.

It’s been a very, very long time since I had cheese, but that doesn’t mean I don’t get cravings for it. Because CHEESE, guys. It’s just wonderful. Most dairy substitutes are made with nuts, but my digestion isn’t great when I eat a ton of nuts at a time. So when I recently saw that many bloggers were using frozen cauliflower in smoothies to make it creamy, I thought it would be a great idea to make this nacho cheese sauce with it. And it really delivers on the velvety texture!

Sure, you can dip just about anything in this cauliflower nacho cheese, but I highly recommend you enjoy it with Siete Foods Tortilla Chips. They are just so darn crispy and delicious, and I’ve become a serious addict (especially the lime flavor!). If you don’t want to use it as a dip, you can even use it as sauce or dressing. I put it over some roasted potatoes the other day, and ermagah, the combination was amazing!

If you can’t eat the real stuff like me, and you want some cheese in your life, you gotta make this recipe. It’s healthy, nutritious, and allergen-free!

      I haven’t tried using raw but it does yield a smoother and creamier texture when you use frozen. Also, if you purchase cauliflower rice already frozen, they’ve been partially steamed before freezing so they are better on the digestion.

    Do you do anything with the frozen raw riced cauliflower before putting it in a blender? Put it in the blender frozen as is, or cook it or let it thaw?

      Nope, just add it in as frozen. Frozen cauliflower you buy is already par-cooked so you don’t need to cook it.
