Healthy Cauliflower Chicken Alfredo with Zucchini Noodles

Directions:

  1. In a large pot, place and cover large cauliflower florets with water and bring to a boil.
  2. Once boiling, cook for an additional 3-7 minutes, until tender when touched by a fork. Drain.
  3. In a skillet, ad the oil and saute the minced garlic over low heat for 4-5 minutes, until softened and aromatic. Do not brown the garlic.
  4. In a high-speed blender, add the cauliflower, sauteed garlic, low-sodium chicken broth, lemon juice, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and cheese.

  7. Heat over low-medium heat until the cheese has melted.
  8. Serve with fresh minced parsley, black pepper, and cooked chicken.
