So once I decided to try this dish, I went straight to my favorite magazine, Taste of Home and found exactly what I was looking for.

SUPER SIMPLE INGREDIENTS:

  • salt and pepper to taste (just a sprinkling for me)

Peel the garlic and add those whole cloves to the cauliflower.  Add a sprinkling of salt and pepper and then add the lid to the pan to steam the vegetables.

Steam for 10 minutes and then drain the cauliflower.  Dump the cauliflower and garlic cloves into a food processor.
