I love surprising company with this dish because they can't believe it's not mashed potatoes. Loaded with antioxidants and phytochemicals, this recipe is a winner. Make sure you roast the heart-healthy garlic first (directions below) and let it fully cool before processing.
2 pounds of cauliflower florets
2 heads of roasted garlic*
½ cup of unsweetened plain soy milk
4 tablespoons nutritional yeast
1 tbsp. Truffle oil
1 tsp. salt
½ tsp. fresh ground pepper
Directions to roast garlic:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Slice approximately ¼ inch off the top of each head of garlic to expose the cloves. Drizzle with olive oil, and ¼ tsp. salt and ¼ pepper. Seal garlic tightly in foil and roast in oven for 45 minutes. Let garlic cool. Squeeze out cloves to process with cauliflower.
Directions for the mash:
Steam cauliflower for 12 minutes, until soft.
Add all ingredients into a food processor and blend until desired consistency.
Taste and add more salt or pepper, to taste.
Re-heat before serving.
