Sigh... Ran it through for you, even though it makes no sense to have a pound/450 grams cauliflower in 5 cups broth plus .75 cups milk yield only 3 cups of sauce. She must have cooked it a long time to reduce it. Each cup of sauce, if you reduced it to 3 cups, is 141 calories if made with whole milk, and 133 calories if you use skim milk.

Sigh again. :-) Apparently mfp ate the sauce recipe do I reentered it. I used 1/2% milk. Nutritional breakdown for 1 cup after it's reduced from the 6+ cups you start with is as follows. 4 g fat, .3 saturated, 11.2 g cholesterol, 17.5 g carb, 5.3 g fiber, 9.4 g sugar, 15.5% calcium. I think if you sub olive oil instead of the butter to fry the onion you can get the high cholesterol level down.

I would feed all the ingredients into mfp, maybe a recipe or meal, find the total calories for the whole finished product. then after i made it i would weigh the whole thing and then i could weigh my servings and take that fraction from the total.
