Holiday bloating no more! This creamy and filling vegan scalloped cauliflower needs to be on your recipe list! All the deliciousness without the bloat or saturated fat. You won’t believe it has no dairy. It’s as simple as blend, slice, assemble and bake. Holiday awesomeness at your fingertips!
This past week I was honored to attend the WhiteWave Thanksgiving event in Denver, Colorado. I was chosen as one of five bloggers attending, I was the Silk representative. Our job was to create a side dish using our product, mine was Silk (obviously because I’m obsessed), make the dish at the event and then get to join, eat and have fun meeting all the awesome people there. I had a BLAST! And this wasn’t only because I was alone without three little monkeys at my side (don’t get me wrong, I love them and all but mama needs a break).
I had so much fun meeting new people, making connections with four other incredible bloggers (for real they rock: Kat, Heather, Kelly, and Lisa are legit talented people), and of course making my vegan scalloped cauliflower! I got many comments on how it was crazy that there was no dairy in it! That is what I love about this all; creating plant-based versions of all the traditional foods and having people love them! Huge win for me! Here’s a little collage showing a bit of the fun, notice how much people hated the plant-based treats:
A huge thank you goes out to everyone that put this event together. It is so nice to see that kindness and really amazing people still exist in this world. Plus, it was amazing to get my scalloped cauliflower out to such a big group of people! Crossing my fingers that it may appear on a few holiday tables this year 🙂
Another awesome thing that happened because of this event, was that I had to find another way to make the sauce for this scalloped cauliflower super creamy WITHOUT my trusty Vitamix. I know, jaw dropping. Lucky for me, I have a great group of blogger pals that came to my rescue, particularly Cadry Nelson (from Cadry’s Kitchen, check her out!). Cadry gave me the idea to grind the cashews with a coffee grinder first. Dry, no soaking required. Holy moly, it worked like a charm! It was SO darn creamy, no lumpy cashew pieces! So for all you peeps without a good blender, THIS IS YOUR NEW FAVE! No excuses now, you need to make this!
Scalloped cauliflower in 3 easy steps:
- Cook potato and onion.
- Blend all sauce ingredients.
- Slice cauliflower.
Does it get any easier? I think not. So, like my fave brand Silk says, let’s #doplants this holiday season and get this baby on your table!
