  • Salt and Pepper

Step by step process

  • Clean and prep the cauliflower: Remove all the leaves from the cauliflower and wash thoroughly under cold running water to remove any dirt.
    Start by carefully cutting through the tough core of the cauliflower, then chop into florets, all roughly the same size.

  • Crush the garlic cloves. Heat oil in a medium-sized saucepan over medium-low heat. Add in the garlic and cook for 2-3 minutes, until it starts to soften.

  • Add in the cauliflower florets and water/vegetable broth. Cover and bring to a boil; once the florets start to boil reduce the heat to low and let it simmer for 8-10 minutes or until fork-tender.

  • Remove the florets with a slotted spoon and place them in a food processor or blender, reserving the liquid. Add the milk and blend until smooth. Add more liquid if needed to reach your desired consistency. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
