  • 5 whole garlic cloves, or about 2 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 head cauliflower, trimmed into florets

    Whole cloves in the oven–Preheat to 425. Drizzle unpeeled cloves with a bit of melted coconut oil and roast in the oven for about 15 minutes.
    Minced jarred garlic on the stove–Heat a cast iron skillet over medium heat. Add garlic in an even layer and cook for a few minutes until it starts to brown.
  2. Place cauliflower florets in a large saucepan with about 1/2 inch water. Cover, and steam for about 10 minutes.
  3. Drain the water completely and add steamed cauliflower to a food processor.
  4. If using whole garlic cloves, squeeze the garlic skins to release the cloves.
  5. Add the garlic; milk or broth; oil or butter; salt; and pepper to the food processor.
  6. Process until smooth and creamy.
