WHITE SAUCE - NON THERMOMIX

Chop garlic finely and saute in a little butter in a large fry pan over low heat until translucent.  Remove and set aside.

Using a slotted spoon place cauliflower into a blender along with 1-2 cups of the liquid, the garlic, cream cheese, salt and pepper.  Blend until the sauce is very smooth, adding more cooking liquid if needed.  You may need to do this in batches if your blender is not large enough.
