Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 15 minutes
Serves: 4


Steaming the garlic along with the cauliflower will remove the raw edge and make it more tender.


1 medium cauliflower head, florets only
2-3 whole garlic cloves, peeled
2 T. extra virgin olive oil
2 T. unsweetened almond milk
1 t. garlic powder
1 t. onion powder
Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
3 T. fresh chives, chopped


Place the cauliflower florets and the garlic cloves into a steamer basket set over a pot of gently boiling water. Cover and steam until the cauliflower is fork-tender, around 15 minutes. For easy convenience you can also steam the garlic and cauliflower using a microwave steamer. Just pop the shelf into the bottom of the container add some water into the bottom, add cauliflower and garlic and microwave on high for about 5 minutes or until fork tender.

Transfer the cauliflower and garlic to a food processor or blender and add the olive oil, almond milk, garlic powder, and onion powder. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste, and process until smooth and creamy. Taste and adjust the seasonings, as desired.

Transfer to a serving bowl and top with fresh chives before serving.

You can steam the cauliflower and garlic as mentioned above or you can use a microwave steamer like I did. My mom is a great cook she can make almost anything except steamed carrots. I’m not sure why but for some reason she would always burn them (haha). Through out the years we have given her gag gifts to remind her how she would always burn them like a apron that said burnt to perfection! Finally I decided I would help her out and get her a steamer. Since I use mine all the time simply because it is so easy! She loves it and uses it all the time plus now her carrots are perfectly steamed with no problem (haha).

For a great Food Processor that is one of the staples in my kitchen I use the Cuisinart Food Processor. It will puree, chop, shred, and slice whatever you need in a timely fashion. If your like me and the more power tools in the kitchen the better, you will see the power behind this thing as it shreds up a pound of cheddar cheese or zucchini in no time while not getting all gummed up. With no ridges or crevices to collect food its a cinch to clean as well!! I love my food processor and use it for anything I can.
